JHD has launched in Lancashire

with No Comments

Several years ago, Carol Harmston-Dean founded JHD Counselling to offer counselling services to people in Cambridgeshire and its surroundings. The last few years have been successful for the organisation and we have been able to reach out to more people in need of our support – individuals, couples and families, schools, and even some of the Cambridge Colleges. With this, the team has grown and there’s now a whole group of people passionate about mental health and well-being running JHD.

In tandem with this, Carol led the training of the next generation of Counsellors and we have now had several cohorts of trainee Counsellors pass through the JHD Training Centre and become qualified Counsellors. In doing so, when Carol made the decision to move to Lancashire, she had created a model that could work anywhere, and one in Cambridgeshire that would endure.

JHD in Cambridgeshire is thriving and continues to help people over here, but unable to rest on her laurels, Carol has begun the work of establishing a second chapter of JHD in the North-West of England. She continues to work with the team here in Cambridge, and we are wishing her all the success in creating ‘up North’ what she has been able to develop down here.

If you want to know more about JHD in Lancashire you can visit the website we have in development, and you are also welcome to e-mail Carol on info@jhdcounselling.co.uk.

JHD awarded ‘Outstanding’ status

with No Comments


This July, JHD Counselling received a visit from the Independent External Verifier who inspects the courses we offer and how well they are being taught. This report is then submitted to the National Counselling Society with whom our courses are recognised. The report, which you can see in full HERE, has recommended us an External Rating of ‘Outstanding‘ which is the best level that can be awarded to an independent centre such as ours.

Carol Harmston-Dean, Managing Director of JHD commented: “I was most proud to see the comments talking about the strength of the JHD team. Our Tutors are absolutely vital in making the JHD culture what it is – a place where students want to practice and teach with us long after they finish. Thank you to all of you, and thank you to Philip the external verifier for recognising the work my team have put in!”
