Jane Anderson psychodynamic counsellorJane Anderson

Psychodynamic Counsellor (MBACP)

My name is Jane Anderson, I am an experienced psychodynamic counsellor based at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, Hackney E8 offering short and longer-term therapy. I am currently seeing clients face to face and online (Zoom, Skype, etc).

I qualified as a psychodynamic counsellor in 1995 and also have a post-qualifying certificate in cognitive behavioural therapy skills.

I have been an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) since 2005 and a member of the British Infertility Counselling Association (BICA) since 2017.

I aim to provide a safe, confidential, reliable space for you to explore your concerns.

In the first instance, I offer an initial consultation appointment which is an opportunity to think together about your concerns and how we might work together. Following this, sessions would usually be on a weekly basis on the same day and time each week.

Working collaboratively to understand the world from your point of view will enable us to think together about the things that are troubling you, to understand more about what is going on for you and to address changes you might want to make.

I have experience gained in the voluntary sector, the NHS and in private practice of working with individuals from a wide range of backgrounds presenting with a variety of concerns such as:

Working in a major London NHS hospital for the past 14 years I have gained particular interest and expertise in women’s health and the issues that emerge for women during their fertility journey.

This includes working with women during fertility treatment, during pregnancy and postnatally, as well as following a traumatic birth, miscarriage or stillbirth.

I am experienced in working with clients from the LGBTQ+ community and addressing the particular issues that may arise for them in considering parenthood.

My Fees:
I charge £70 for each 50-minute session.

I also provide clinical supervision to counsellors and therapists.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Seek Therapy?

Many people, new to this type of help, believe that they need to be suffering from “mental illness” or serious “psychological problems”, or be in crisis in order for therapy and counselling to be appropriate for them. This is a common misconception; anyone can benefit from therapy when it comes to helping you deal with your personal feelings and problems, make positive changes in your life, and understand yourself better.

So what is therapy and counselling? If you’re new to this world then the first steps can sometimes be the most difficult. Therapy can be a very effective treatment for a whole range of personal problems covering areas from physical and emotional problems, different types of behavioural disorders, through to human sexuality issues and a host of wellbeing and complementary therapy techniques.

Any problem you have that is causing you concern, anxiety or distress is a valid and appropriate reason to reach out and find a therapist and talk to them about it. Far from something to be ashamed of, acknowledging your vulnerability and asking for help is a sign of maturity and strength.

If you feel that you have a desire and are committed to making changes in your life in order to overcome your current problems and achieve more long-term satisfaction, psychological wellbeing and personal fulfilment, then you are ready to seek therapy. We are here to help you work through a wide range of therapy issues that might be troubling you.

Will Information About Me Be Safe & Secure?

It is quite normal to be hesitant when it comes to sharing private and intimate information about yourself with a stranger. You may fear that you will receive judgment from your therapist, or that your therapist will share your details with others.

HQ Therapy Rooms takes your privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Our therapists are required to keep everything said in therapy sessions between you, just like your doctor is required to keep your records private.

For therapy to be effective, there must be unconditional trust built between you and your therapist, and this relies on a shared understanding of confidentiality. It applies to the outside world as well: it is standard practice for therapists not to acknowledge their clients if they run into them outside of the therapy rooms in order to help protect their client’s confidentiality. Read our full privacy policy for more information.

Can I Contact You For Advice About Getting Therapy?

It feels good to be listened to and to know that someone cares about you and wants to help. It is important that you find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and can build a trusting relationship to help you make positive changes in your life.
