Jane Dempsey Pic


  • Diploma in Spirituality & Wellness
  • Diploma in Counselling, Bristol
  • Cert Transpersonal Psychology, London

Although I trained and worked as a professional violinist, I  always maintained a deep interest in our collective and individual journeys and the relationship between ourselves, nature, spirit, music, art, mythology and more.

Exploring spiritual paths, I spent time in Nepal and India and took part in retreats with the well-knowned Vietnamese Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh and HH the Dalai Lama.


  • In the late 90’s I undertook personal counselling work with Rob Preece through a series of Transpersonal Workshops and retreats, which lead to my study of Transpersonal Psychology at the Centre for TP in London.
  • In 2003 I completed a Diploma In Counselling at Bristol University.
  • From 2004, I worked for a time with the Terence Higgins Trust and Off The Record in Bath and North East Somerset, supporting and counselling clients.
  • In 2017 I completed a Diploma in Practical Spirituality and Wellness with William Bloom.
  • I am presently  participating in Bereavement training with Cruse and continue to work in music and in counselling, in a variety of contexts.

I offer one-to-one counselling sessions, short and longer term, and facilitate meditation groups and self development workshops.  Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions you have – I’d like to hear from you.
