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.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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.
