Janet Astle

Member Status: Accredited

Member No: JA00P10

Location: Brixham

I have worked in many areas of WellBeing to include healing & recovery for over 35 years and I continually find myself amazed by what we can achieve when we are supported to do so.
My own experiences inform me of this and countless Client success "stories".


If you have read about me so far and want to know more.....
You contact me or give me details on how to contact you if that is preferable.

Depending on the service:

*Counselling / Psychotherapy / Supervision / Mentoring (or organisational Consultancy) I offer a complimentary (free) 30 minute telephone consultation. This gives opportunity for you to ask questions and to see if we feel comfortable in working together to meet your needs.

You visit my practice which is based in Brixham and outline the concern or problem you want help with and we discuss a way of working together and agree to continue or not.
You may also wish to go away and think about whether or not you want to continue.
I won’t take anything personally if you choose not to work with me; I know how important it is to find the “right” person at this time.

If you choose to continue then we book a block of 4 – 6 sessions, in the first of which I will complete an assessment gaining all the basic information I need. I write and we just talk to help me fill out the form.

If you have any further questions then please do get in touch.

Pease check my website for more information.

My practice is easily accessible and sits on the number 17 bus route, there is also on street parking available
There is sloping disabled access to my practice followed by 2 small steps at intervals within, however this may be unsuitable for a wheelchair user.

Thank you for reading and I wish you well...
