Hello! I’m Jane Wildbore
I am a qualified Counsellor, passionate about providing a professional Counselling, School Counselling, Psychotherapy and Clinical Supervision Services to the Loughborough and Leicestershire area.
My goal is to support you to enhance the quality of your life. Whether you are dealing with something specific or are seeking increased satisfaction and balance in life, I’m here to help.
I am passionate and love my career in counselling and psychotherapy working with individual adults and young people with a broad range of issues, helping people gain insights into their difficulties and working with them to find a way forward a way that is best for them.
I have been a counsellor for several years and I know, from experience that sometimes the personal and professional challenges that life constantly throws at us are easier to overcome with counselling support and help. As I qualified Counsellor it has allowed me to gain a wide range of experiences working in mental health, safeguarding, illness, disability and education with children, adolescents and adults.
For your convenience, I work from home, my office in Leicester and offer home visits across Leicestershire. Telephone, online counselling and supervision is a service I provide nationwide.
My journey began working as a volunteer counsellor for Mosaic on Placement in 2007. I now manage and facilitate Group Counselling Supervision to a team of 12 Counsellors. I have gained extensive experience working with illness, loss and disability and implemented the Counselling Service and Supervision for LCIL (Leicestershire Centre for Integrated Living) for a period of 2 years.
For 10 years, I have worked as a school and college counsellor supporting young people from age 6 - 21 years. I currently work part-time as a primary school counsellor in a few schools in Leicestershire. I have years of experience working with self-harm, self-esteem, bullying, relationships and sexuality, working with every aspect of being a young person today and the problems with social media that arise.
In March 2014, I was approached and asked to set up a structured and streamlined Counselling Service at The Leicester LGBT Centre and facilitate group and individual Supervision for the Centre. Having a great deal of knowledge and experience of counselling LGBT Clients I wholeheartedly accepted. Counselling is a way of working and exploring thoughts, feelings and questions of gender, sexuality and identity.
During my work as a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, I have seen the most beautiful type of Alchemy, which is the transformation of the human mind and behaviours, the attainment of inner peace and tranquillity, the vast improvement in self-confidence and self-belief and the understanding of the personal meaning of happiness. I understand the challenges of the process but also the satisfaction of experiencing a life full of possibilities, a fulfilled life.
I work with:
Anxiety & Depression which are often combined, fortunately treating depression also helps ease symptoms of anxiety. Depression and anxiety can also cause physical symptoms, professional counselling can make dealing with anxiety easier. Learning ways to deal with attacks & take control of your life.
Chronic illness and disability now affect more people than ever before. Counselling can also be a means of coping with physical & emotional symptoms of loss and pain. Caring for someone with a physical disability or illness can be a very challenging responsibility & emotionally draining.
Abuse can happen to anyone. It involves more than physical violence, abuse can be emotional and sexual. Abuse has a devastating impact. It can create a wide ranging and long lasting physical, emotional and psychological scars. Counselling helps to rebuild your life.
Relationships issues such as marriage problems, affairs, separation and abuse can leave you feeling angry, sad, insecure.
Bereavement there’s no right or wrong way to grieve and there’s no telling how long it may take. There are different types of bereavement and loss, with different effects. Counselling helps in working through your grief and coming to terms with your loss.
Drugs, Alcohol, Gambling, Addictions Although substances and addictions can feel good at first, they can ultimately do a lot of harm to the body and brain. The most widely used drug in the world is alcohol which acts as a depressant that alters perceptions, emotions, and senses.
Anger is a secondary emotion that is hugely misunderstood. It is a signal and a reaction when we think and believe we are being treated unfairly. Feelings of hurt, betrayal, guilt and upset.
LGBT Counselling it can be difficult to find counsellor with some understanding of the issues and how daunting the prospect of taking the first steps can be. I offer counselling that provides a confidential, non-judgmental and friendly space in which in which you can feel safe and secure when discussing your feelings of sexuality, identity and experiences of discrimination or rejection.
