Jane Dixon - MA, PGDip, (MBACP), Integrative Therapist
People seek therapy 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. Engaging in therapy can be a challenging but very rewarding process and I respect the courage it takes to talk about what is traumatic or painful.
As an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist I am trained to draw upon a number of theoretical and relational approaches: Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Existential. I am experienced in integrating these ways of working in order to meet the particular needs of each client. My approach is always to work collaboratively with you. I bring a warmth and openness to my work, helping you to reflect on your experiences in life, whatever they are, to seek to understand them and build on your resources to meet the challenges you have.
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, feelings and experiences can be explored without judgement or needing to meet the expectations of others. The relationship between therapist and client is significantly different from speaking with family or friends and forms a dynamic and important element in the therapy itself. I have experience of working with very diverse clients to enable trust and dialogue to take place.
I offer short or long-term therapy to adults (18+) on an individual basis.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP - register number 374486).
I trained at Regent's University, London, and gained the following qualifications:
MA - Psychotherapy and Counselling (Distinction)
Postgraduate Diploma (Level 7)- Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling
Postgraduate Foundation Certificate - 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.
Before training as a therapist, I taught in Higher Education and became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I understand the pressures and challenges faced by younger adults, both in a competitive learning environment, feeling social isolation or when facing an uncertain future.
I adhere fully to the BACP Code of Ethics in my clinical practice and accordingly receive regular professional supervision on my work from a highly experienced BACP/UKCP supervisor. I am committed to continuing professional development: I regularly attend conferences and further training programs. I am a member of the Society for Existential Analysis.

I offer both short-term and longer-term/open ended counselling and psychotherapy.
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 further sessions which would usually be at the same time and on the same day each week.
Initial introductory session - £45
Weekly therapy sessions - £55
I have a limited number of places which I offer at a lower rate. Please contact me for details.
