Testimonials: All testimonials are genuine.

I suffered the death of my Farther when I was 16yrs old, and up to the age of 28 I never spoke to anybody about it, how to deal with the grief, or told anybody how I felt inside. In not talking for 12yrs I seriously put myself under mental pressure that took to me to the edge and ate me away inside. Janet helped me see how to deal with and overcome the issues that I faced, and I can honestly say that before I went to see her I truly believed that I had reached the point where help was to late, but its never to late when somebody like this can guide you. I now have a new outlook and can say that I am now happy with my life.

I came to see Janet as I was finding it hard to cope when my daughter became ill. I found Janet extremely helpful, supportive and empathic.

Derbyshire................................................................................................................................................ I cannot recommend Janet highly enough. She is very professional and put me at ease straight away. I was able to evaluate my life differently in way I have not been able to with others before.

After a particularly traumatic and stressful relationship break up I was advised to attend counselling sessions with Janet. After a series of sessions Janet has helped me to see things more clearly and alleviate the stress I was experiencing. I am finding life so much easier now and am managing to put everything behind me and start a fresh. I would highly recommend.

Miss B. Derbyshire. .............................................................................................................................................. I have recently had a series of counselling sessions with J.G. Counselling. I was experiencing a great deal of difficulty at work and it was causing a lot of anxiety and stress. It was beginning to dominate my personal life. J.G. Helped me to develop a clearer perspective and re-evaluate my situation. I can now manage my personal and work life a lot more productively. I would like to say a big thankyou to J.G.

I received counselling from Janet Greenwood regarding personal issues. I found her to be highly illuminating about my situation, I discovered a different me. I was astounded at how much change I felt after seeing Janet. I would recommend Janet to anyone who feels lost.

Y. Holt. Cheshire. .............................................................................................................................................. I am currently under Janet's supervision with counselling having gone through a major trauma in my life and turning into a very timid and emotional character and with support and understanding from Janet and how she talks me through the situation I am now getting back to my normal self and feeling so much better about myself and feeling so much more confident in all aspects of my life. Thanks so much to Janet and I would recommend her to anyone who needs a counsellor. She also approaches her sessions with a very warm and professional attitude and makes the time she spends with you very comfortable indeed.

C.H. Derbyshire. ............................................................................................................................................... My time spent with Janet, was a time of mixed emotions. It was good to be able to say whatever I wanted, without being judged. It was anonymous but also you felt as if you were speaking to a friend. Janet was there to listen. I was able to speak and let go. Although my issues can't be sorted overnight, I feel that I have been steered in the right direction.... I think everyone should have a Janet in their pocket and I wouldn't hesitate to pick up the phone if needed. Thank you Janet for being there. Kind regards.

................................................................................................................................................ My husband and I saw Janet earlier this year following many months of relationship difficulties. Our ability to communicate effectively with each had completely broken down and we were on the verge of going our separate ways after 14 years together. During our sessions Janet helped us both very quickly to understand and approach our circumstances in a calmer, fairer, more objective and accepting way. Janet encouraged different ways of interacting with each other to get the most out of our relationship and to avoid conflict. Janet is patient and clearly incredibly experienced in her field. It is fair to say without Janet's professional guidance and help our relationship may not have survived.

J & C. Cheshire. ...............................................................................................................................................I started to see Janet over a couple of years ago after my husband died suddenly. I found her number through the BACP website and emailed at first. Janet invited me to visit her for an initial session. I am so glad I did! At the time I was numb with shock and grief from the circumstances in which my husband died and being left with 2 children. I was lucky in that I have great family and friends around me but needed something more too. When you lose someone it is hard to be completely open with the people around you as they are grieving too and worried about you. I can honestly say that Janet helped me survive the darkest days literally. I felt safe to talk about my feelings and always felt a sense of relief afterwards. At first I had weekly counselling and then gradually stretched it out to 2 weeks, 3 weeks etc.  Janet is very flexible and accommodating which is great. As time went on I found that the sessions became more about me as a person and not just my grief.  It has been invaluable to be able to talk through life with someone who can skilfully teach you to reflect and grow as Janet can. I have had to build a new life for myself and children and Janet's support has been integral to that.  Janet is a wise and positive person as well as being an empathic listener and I can't recommend her highly enough. Thank you Janet.

C.P. Cheshire. .............................................................................................................................................. I am very grateful to Janet for helping me to deal with work related stress which last autumn resulted in me being signed off work by my GP for 8 weeks. Janet always treated me as an individual and was professional, courteous and kind at all times. She took the time to find the best way to work with me always taking things at my speed. As a result I returned to work and with her help regained confidence in my abilities. I am now looking for a new job and feeling confident and positive about the future. I have also learned lots of things I didn't know about myself and hopefully become a more assertive person. I am very glad that I took up counselling, it is something that I have perhaps in the past (wrongly) been sceptical about. For me it has helped me through a very difficult time and I don't where I would be now without it.

Caroline, Derbyshire. March 2014 ............................................................................................................................................. I came to see Janet after experiencing a series of anxiety and panic attacks in both work and social situations. Janet provided a comfortable and relaxing 1-on-1 environment in which I was able to speak freely about my issues, and has helped me to understand what was happening and why. She has given me the tools to better manage my anxiety, and more importantly shown how I can stop the problems all together by changing the way I think and deal with them.The personal improvement I have seen between my first session and now is huge, and I can't recommend Janet highly enough. Thank you Janet!

I was advised to seek counselling as I was suffering from work place stress. I was given an appointment the day after requesting counselling. Janet has a very relaxed, friendly & professional approach which immediately made me feel at ease. My sessions with her made me feel supported & she helped me to realise that I was not alone. At the end of my sessions I felt empowered & more confident. I would highly recommend Janet to anybody seeking counselling. Anon

When I had counselling with Janet I was at a very low point in my life after the loss of my dad. Janet was wonderful right from start. She made me feel at ease, listening and understanding all the emotions I was going through. My sessions with Janet were very professional but in a very warm and friendly atmosphere where I felt at ease, like I was sat with a friend. Thank you Janet for all your help and support throughout this difficult time.
