Jane Dixon - MBACP Registered, Psychotherapist and Counsellor
City Road Therapy
335, City Road
I understand that considering therapy and choosing a therapist can be a daunting process, particularly whilst you are experiencing any kind of distress. People seek psychotherapy or counselling for many different reasons: perhaps you are struggling to come to terms with something specific that you have experienced, or it might be more an awareness of feeling maybe sad, stuck or isolated, a feeling that something in life has gone wrong.
My approach as a psychotherapist and counsellor, is always to work collaboratively with you, to seek to understand and to help you explore whatever is difficult in your life. I bring a warmth and openness to my work with clients. Engaging in therapy can be a challenging but very rewarding process and I respect the courage it takes to talk about what is painful.
As a therapist I can help you to reflect on your experiences, whatever they are, to seek to understand them and build on your resources to support you in meeting the challenges you face. Therapy sessions provide a different kind of emotional and reflective space from that which is found in daily life. I offer a safe environment and confidential space, where thoughts and feelings can be explored without judgement or needing to meet the expectations of others. The relationship between therapist and client, established and built on through regular meetings, is significantly different from speaking with family or friends. This therapeutic relationship forms a dynamic and important element in the therapy itself and I have experience in working to create this with very diverse clients.
I am an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor, registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I offer short or long-term therapy to adults (18+) on an individual basis.
Training, qualifications & experience
As a qualified integrative psychotherapist and counsellor I am trained and experienced in drawing upon a number of theoretical and relational approaches: Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Existential. It is the individual, down to earth approach of Existential Psychotherapy which forms the core of my work with clients and into which I integrate other approaches as appropriate, in order to meet the particular needs of each client.
I adhere fully to the BACP Code of Ethics in my clinical practice and accordingly receive regular professional supervision on my work from an accredited supervisor. I am committed to continuing professional development: I regularly attend activities such as workshops, conferences and further training programs. I am a member of the Society for Existential Analysis.
I trained at Regent's University, London, in the School of Psychotherapy and Psychology.
MA Psychotherapy and Counselling
Postgraduate Diploma (Level 7) - Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling
Postgraduate Certificate in Psychotherapy and Counselling
In addition to my private practice I work as a counsellor within a London mental health charity based in Hackney, where I see clients both long and short-term about a wide range of issues.
I previously worked as a counsellor for the City and East London Bereavement Service, based in Bethnal Green and Docklands. There, I worked with clients who had suffered traumatic loss, including pre and postnatal, multiple bereavement, sudden or unexpected loss through illness, suicide or violence, and the impact of long-term unprocessed grief.
I have a particular interest in working with loss of all kinds, including bereavement.
Before training as a therapist, I taught in Higher Education and became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I have long experience of working with students and younger adults and understand the pressures and challenges faced in a competitive learning environment or when living alone or away from home and familiar support.

Photos & videos
I offer both short-term and longer-term/open ended psychotherapy and counselling.
If you think that therapy might be helpful for you, an initial introductory session would give us the opportunity to meet and experience how we might work together and to discuss how therapy might best meet your needs. If continuing then seems like the right path forward for you, we can make arrangements for weekly sessions.
An initial session costs £45
Weekly therapy sessions cost £55
All sessions are 50 minutes.
To make an appointment or ask any questions you might have, please do get in touch, either by email or phone. If I am unavailable to answer your call, please feel free to leave me a message with your contact details.
The work that I do is via face to face sessions. I generally can only offer telephone counselling to clients already in regular therapy and for whom certain circumstances (such as chronic illness) make accessing sessions difficult on occasion. I am happy to discuss this with you if you feel it is relevant to your needs.
