Individual Psychotherapy and Couples Counselling in Bath, BA2 and the surrounding area
Welcome, and thank you for visiting my psychotherapy and couples counselling website. My name is Janet Busse and I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist. I offer both short-term and open-ended therapy to adult individuals (aged 18+) and couples in Bath and the surrounding area.
Reaching out to a therapist for support
If you are here, I’m guessing you might be considering seeking some support and thinking about talking to somebody in confidence. Individual psychotherapy and couples counselling offers you the opportunity to do just that with a therapist like myself, who is experienced, empathic and non-judgemental. You do not need to be in crisis, many people come when they recognise that they are living with a certain level of irritation or frustration, unable to pinpoint its origin and feeling like they lack the skills to address the situation. Or when they are feeling lost, sad or confused or struggling with issues around confidence and self-worth. I believe we are all unique and reach out when we are ready.
Why explore individual psychotherapy or couples counselling with me?
My aim is to provide you with a confidential space where you feel safe and supported, so that together we can explore and make sense of what is troubling you and help you find a way to greater wellbeing and enjoyment in life. There are many reasons people seek help and I see each piece of client work as unique and collaborative with us both/all engaged in its shape and pace. You will find me both supportive, gently curious and compassionate in my way of using my Humanistic and Integrative training to draw from a wide range of theory to encourage and bring about change.
As a UKCP registered psychotherapist I abide by their codes of practice to ensure that my work is both ethical and my skills current. I came to this profession in mid-life bringing my personal experience of the challenges of working in both the private and public sectors in a previous career to my work as a psychotherapist.
What issues can I help with?
