Behind every person who feels despair, lost, alone, helpless, panicked, depressed, trapped, is a person who can be helped. Sharing the burden, feeling supported, being heard, not feeling judged, empathy- these are all aspects of counselling that I provide. For some, it means telling their story and being heard properly, maybe for the first time ever. I have a passion for helping people to understand themselves better and working with them to remove the blocks in the way of their inner peace. Importantly, I always believe that change, release from suffering and a better way forward is possible for every person.

Are you looking for an experienced counsellor to explore issues that are presenting in life and are causing difficulties? These could be relationships, personal crisis, addictions, or other challenges you may be dealing with. We live in a complex and ever-changing world and emotional distress can occur in anyone's life for a whole variety of reasons. In my practice I see how compassion, self-knowledge and understanding can be transformative and with the right care and supports clients take back control of their lives, overcome old trauma, manage present day challenges and setbacks, identify and achieve their personal goals.

Sometimes life can just feel out of kilter and we don't know why, or the weight of every day life is heavy. When we feel like this it can be helpful to have someone to talk to who is not already involved and invested in your life. I work across a spectrum of mental health concerns, but have a particular interest in trauma, grief/loss, maternal mental health (in particular crisis pregnancy and miscarriage), addiction, depression, anxiety, low-self esteem and perfectionism. I work with Nurture Health on all areas related to maternal mental health.

I suffered from anxiety&panic attacks for 22yrs due to bullying & narcissistic abuse, which held my back from achieving my goals until I got help. Being a Co-dependent people pleaser meant that I was putting other people’s wants and needs before my own, trying to get acceptance, manage the situation and to keep the peace. This was exhausting until I learned how to take my personal power back

Making the decision to attend psychotherapy can be a positive step. It can help to gain a greater understanding to find the resources to make changes. It can also lead to self-discovery and self-awareness to live a more fulfilling life and to have more meaningful interpersonal relationships. I believe people can be the editors of their own lives, active agents of change, especially when the situations or others around us cannot. This doesn’t mean all things can be changed by us in the way we would like. It simply means sometimes that having more understanding around something, helps things to change or allows us to cope better.

The client is always at the centre of the counselling process and their holistic psychological welfare is of utmost importance. Our counselling space is a safe environment where the beliefs and values of the client are respected and their sense of independence and growth are nurtured.Initially, I see my role as one of facilitating the individual’s exploration of their thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. My integrative training then allows me to be fluid in my approach and draw on other schools of psychotherapy as our counselling journey progresses.

My name is Jane Topkin and I am the founder of Healingmatters Counselling & Psychotherapy. The concept of my practice is based on the idea of the relationship with ourselves. We may endure many struggles in life and as humans, we are resilient and creative, however, we can never run away from ourselves. As many of our core issues perpetuate, they will not cease to show up until we face ourselves in the midst of our truth. Our relationships with others are also of crucial importance, being the reason why many people come to therapy in the first place.

My approach is humanistic and integrative, meaning that I combine learning from different schools of psychotherapy to best meet the needs of each person. I work with a broad range of issues such as depression, anxiety, grief, relationship issues, childhood trauma, self-esteem and personal-development. My career began in software development, and I moved from there into the not-for-profit sector, where I supported people in developing leadership skills through volunteering. I became interested in counselling and psychotherapy, as I saw people's ability to grow during periods of intense challenge, provided they had the right supports.
