~ STRESSWORKS ~ grew out of a particular combination of experience and vision, and provides a service which is unique:
As a therapist, Janice is acutely aware not only of the emotional and psychological impact of past and current experiences on our lives and well-being; she is also familiar with the realities of individual and workplace tension and stress, and is able to bring those two areas of knowledge and experience together in her work with clients. As a consultant and trainer, she brings together both therapeutic and training perspectives, helping individuals, organisations and teams to become aware of both their conscious and unconscious processes, so facilitating growth and change at a deep level.
Janice Judson is an English and Drama Graduate, and taught those subjects for a number of years before leaving to develop her own training and consultancy company, ~ STRESSWORKS ~.

She currently runs a busy private practice, and was, until recently, also Lecturer in Counselling and Psychotherapy and Director of the MA/Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling at Leicester University.
Janice is a warm and empathic therapist, who sees the quality of the therapeutic relationship as central to the successful outcome of therapy. Trained as a psychodynamic counsellor and therapist, she combines this core knowledge and understanding of the way in which our current difficulties often relate back to past experiences and events, with an awareness that we all have a rich and dynamic way of being which encompasses not only our day to day conscious life, but also a creative and lively unconscious one. She believes that lasting change happens not at a cognitive level, but at an emotional one, and that becoming self aware and accepting of ourselves in the company of a therapist who understands us is a truly healing and empowering experience.
