Psychodynamic and CBT therapist specialising in narcissistic and domestic abuse

Psychodynamic and CBT Counsellor based in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire

SP team member

Hi, I'm Janine and I am a qualified and experienced counsellor based in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire.

Do you feel you have toxic people in your life and setting boundaries is difficult and impacting on your own wellbeing? Are you co dependent and put others needs first? Through my own personal experience of a narcissistic marriage I learnt that my view of the world was to fix people and put their needs first regardless of whether it was damaging to me physically and mentally. I have used this experience along with my counselling training and  skills to help and support others to walk away from damaging relationships and to deal with the trauma and anger these relationships have caused. I  have 15 years experience of narcissistic abuse and the damage this abuse can do and together we can work through your feelings in order for you to find yourself again and  claim your life back.

 I specialise in narcissist abuse and the impact this can have on you and I will work with you to support you in understanding narcissism, gaslighting and trauma bonding and putting healthy boundaries in place so that you can take back control of your own life. I also have extensive experience of working with anxiety, depression, low self esteem and domestic abuse.

Through therapy we will work together to explore your thoughts and feelings and what difficulties you are experiencing and I will support you to work towards any changes you wish to make using a mixture of therapeutic tools.

I work in an Integrative way with Psychodynamic and CBT being at the centre of my approach. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I work within their ethical standards and continue to work within their framework and code of ethics. I will work with you weekly, fortnightly or monthly to explore the challenges you are facing and together we can put a plan of action in place using CBT interventions to support you in making the changes you wish to make. I offer a warm, friendly safe space for you to explore your concerns. I have experience of working with narcissistic abuse, anxiety, depression, low self esteem, domestic abuse and relationship issues.

I also have experience of working with teenagers around emotional wellbeing, self harm, anxiety and sexual exploitation issues.

I offer telephone, zoom and home visits for clients who prefer this as well as evening and weekend appointments.
