Jane Clayton Psychotherapy, psychotherapist and counsellor in Sheffield, South Yorkshire

About Me

I am a registered member of the BACP and an integrative, relational and humanistic psychotherapist and counsellor.  This means I put you and the relationship between us at the centre of my work; your therapy.  I have a natural curiosity and interest in people, and truly believe in the power of psychotherapy to transform lives.


Working with and nurturing people has been at the heart of my career to date.  Having been an academic, business consultant and cultural change leader, as well working in caring roles with children and vulnerable adults, I have considerable experience of engaging with people and coming up with ways to provide them with the support they need.  I bring this professional experience, a flair for creativity and my bespoke approach to building relationships into my work as a psychotherapist. 

I love the work that I do and, having had my own struggles with mental health which led to me seeking therapy myself, I feel honoured that I am now able to work with people at the time they need it most.

Whatever brings you to therapy – whether it is a personal or professional crisis, past trauma, or fears for the future – I will be on your side; working with you to find solutions or simply to walk alongside you for as long as you need.

As a humanistic psychotherapist, I always work with the person in front of me – with an open-mind and without judgement.  As such, I will try to support you irrespective of the reasons that brought you to therapy. I have a particular professional interest in complex trauma, existential crises, and shame.


Below is a list of some common presentations I work with; it is not exhaustive so please contact me to arrange a telephone consultation to see how I can help.
