Alan Jones UKCP Accredited Psychotherapist, BSc.(Hons) Psychology
At the age of 19, I became involved in psychotherapy groups, which had a strongly humanistic and feminist viewpoint. Over the next few years, this involvement developed into long term psychotherapy training and analysis, whilst I also obtained an honours degree in psychology.
My main interest in psychotherapy has always been empowerment. Often women and men suffer a lot of unfair and confusing treatment in life.
To understand our situation and ourselves we need time, space and encouragement. We need a caring environment where someone has the time to listen to us, rather than being judged or labelled.
My main interest in working with people is looking at the purpose and meaning of our lives. How to change unhappiness, or anxiety, or dissatisfaction into fulfilment, enjoyment and success.
For the past 41 years, I have been providing individual and couple therapy. I supervise other psycho-therapists and provide supervision and facilitation for various charities.

I work with people in all areas of counselling and psychotherapy, from relationship problems to anxiety, and finding meaning in life.
The way I work depends upon what is most effective for each individual person, from CBT to psychodynamic and existential therapy or mindfulness practice.
The most important thing I believe is to work from a Humanistic perspective... the client always comes first, not the theory.
For therapy to be useful, the most important factor is the relationship of equality and trust that we can develop.
