Hi, I am Jane, welcome to my practice. After working in London in investment banking for many years I decided to make a change. I felt I wanted something different from my life so I decided to retrain in psychotherapy and I am dedicated, enthusiastic and committed to the positive impact personal therapy can have on the quality of your life.
You might be having pressures at work, or with family or your partner and confused about the impact this is having on you. You could be struggling with the loss of someone close or even just fed up feeling something isn't quite right but not sure what to do. My aim is to provide you with somewhere safe and confidential in which to explore the reasons why you decided to seek support at this time and the initial session will be a place to explore this. I will also provide a space in which to establish what you might like to gain from therapy and how we may work together and how long for. I understand seeking therapy can be daunting and I am committed to creating a warm, comfortable space for you.
I hold an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy from Middlesex University and a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling from the Metanoia Institute. I am accredited with the leading industry body for psychotherapists, the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and a registered psychotherapist with the BACP (MBACP). I have had diverse experience and training in multiple approaches, settings and client groups spread over many years. I take an integrative approach to psychotherapy which means I pull upon these various techniques allowing me to tend to individual needs using specific tools the disciplines offer. I work on an open-ended, longer-term basis and also a time-limited basis where specific goals and concerns can be focused on. I believe that establishing a safe, trusting and mutually respectful relationship between therapist and client is vital to the outcome of the therapy. I believe in therapy being a collaborative experience between the therapist and client and I am respectful and mindful of the life experience the client brings and how we work with that together. I abide by the BACP and UKCP Code of Ethics.
I hope to create a safe space for you to explore what it is that has brought you to seek therapy at this time.
