My name is Jane Olliff-Cooper. My training as a counsellor/psychotherapist began in my early fifties, which from Diploma to Degree took four years - four fascinating, challenging and rewarding years. On qualifying, I used my skills at a counselling charity and then decided to start my own private practice. I moved on to do couples' work, which brought with it more challenges and a fascinating glimpse into the dynamics of an intimate partnership. I am now enjoying a sabbatical, time for me to step back and smell the roses!
