Jane Hunter Psychodynamic PsychotherapistJane Hunter:

Psychodynamic Psychotherapist (MBACP)


My name is Jane Hunter and I am a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist working with individuals aged 18+ in the NHS and in private practice from HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, East London.

You may be seeking therapeutic support with a particular problem e.g. depression, anxiety, OCD, trauma, abuse, sexuality, identity, relationship difficulties, bereavement.

Or you may not know what is wrong other than a sense that something is not right.

I provide a safe, confidential space in which we can explore your thoughts and feelings and try to make sense of what is causing you to feel the way that you do.

 

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
A key tenet of psychodynamic theory is that our childhood experiences continue to shape our lives in adulthood, both in ways, we may perceive but also in ways that we do not.

One of its aims is to make more of our unconscious available to our conscious awareness.  With greater insight into what motivates us, we have more freedom over the choices we make and ultimately, can lead more fulfilling lives.

Part of the therapeutic process involves facing up to challenging or uncomfortable thoughts and feelings but over time this can enable us to feel better equipped to manage our emotions rather than repressing them or feeling overwhelmed by them.

 

How I work 
Across two one-hour consultation appointments, I will be interested in learning what has led you to seek therapy.  I will be curious about you, your family background, key relationships and your current circumstances.

We can then determine if this therapy is suitable for you and you will be in a better position to decide if you want to undertake therapy with me.  If I feel that you would benefit from a different therapy or service, I would make that recommendation.

I am experienced in delivering short-term (16 sessions) and longer-term therapy.  Together, we can think about what would be most helpful to you at this time.

We would then meet at least weekly, for 50 minutes at the same time each week.

 

Qualifications and Experience
I qualified with a BSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy from Birkbeck University and have several years of experience working in the NHS, both in primary and secondary care services.

Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) Practitioner, Anna Freud Centre.

I work with both young and older adults and have experience working with people from a wide variety of ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and therefore abide by its ethical framework.

 

Fees
My standard fee is £70 per session

I am currently seeing clients face to face, by phone and by Zoom.

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?

Talking about your thoughts and feelings with a supportive therapist can often make you feel better and help you face your problems. 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.

But how do you know what type of therapy is right for you? Taking the first steps in finding the right therapist can be the biggest hurdle for newcomers, so we have made it easy. Simply fill out the form below in confidence, and one of our fully qualified referral therapists can work with you to make sure you connect with the right practitioner and receive the correct therapy and counselling services you require.

Our practitioners deal with a wide range of therapy issues using different types of therapy modalities tailored for the types of clients we work with. We also cater for people who are beset with financial difficulties, offering them services ranging from low-cost therapy and reduced rate therapy, to working with seasoned, qualified and accredited talking therapists.
