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.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
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.
