My name is Jane Cline. I am a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist and I am based in Richings Park opposite Iver station. I provide a safe and warm non judgemental environment where your worries will be heard and explored. I will help you to think about how past experiences are linked to present conflicts. Being able to make these links between past experiences and present patterns of behaviour can lead to an increased self awareness and a better understanding of our motivation and behaviour.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy is based on the theory that conflicts and problems experienced in the present have their roots in the past. We learn our ways of relating and our emotional vocabulary from our earliest relationships. These patterns from the past affect our current relationships in ways we are usually unaware of. Counselling provides a safe and containing environment in which to explore our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. This process allows for the potential to gain new insights into the roots of our behaviour, increasing our perception and awareness, enabling us to change the way we behave towards ourselves and others.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified psychotherapist having trained at WPF Therapy London. WPF Therapy is one of the principal psychotherapy training organisations in the UK. It is accredited by the BACP and the UKCP. My qualifications include:
Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice (WPF Therapy).

I am a member of the FPC and the BACP. I work within the ethical guidelines of the BACP.
I have experience of counselling in a variety of settings including clinical experience at WPF Therapy and in the voluntary sector. I currently work as an Honorary therapist at WPF Therapy and as an Associate Counsellor at the Royal Holloway University of London where I counsel undergraduate students. I work with people of different ages, gender, culture and background.

Initial assessment is £50. If we then agree to work together the fee for ongoing work will depend on your personal financial circumstances.
Psychotherapy and Counselling could help if:
- you feel worried or stressed
- you lack confidence of have low self-esteem
- you have experienced bereavement, loss or trauma
- you find relationships difficult
- you seek greater self understanding
Counselling and Psychotherapy can help:
- by offering support in a safe, containing environment
- by helping to increase self awareness
- by increasing our understanding our patterns in our relationships through exploring their links with the past.
It is important for the relationship with the therapist to be based on trust and to have a therapist you feel comfortable with. The therapist does not give advice or tell you what to do but reflects back with the aim of increasing clarity and understanding. The therapist will aim to help you to make your own choices.
