Jane Knights


I have a Diploma in Counselling (1998) as well as an Advance Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling (2010) and an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy (2010) from the Minster Centre North London. I am a qualified DIT psychotherapist. I am UKCP registered and am on the Professional standards accredited registry.


My working life has been mainly spent in the voluntary sector working with young people, and people who have become homeless. While I was studying for my qualification in social work, I became interested in workplace issues. I have been practicing as a psychotherapist since 2009 working with adults (18+) I ran a counselling service for over 6 years and now maintain a private practice and as well as some NHS work.

How I work:

In my counselling and psychotherapy work I use listening skills and empathy to help people explore their concerns in a non-judgmental way. I aim to create a relationship of exploration and openness. I see myself as a companion on a journey of discovery and believe that the relationship that the therapist and client build together is the place where that journey begins. Many people have areas of their lives that they feel are not working as they used to or have become aware of difficulties that are getting in the way of the lives they want to lead. So, I have an integrative counselling approach that uses influences and tools from several models to create an individual style for each person.

Some areas of counselling I work with: Aging, Anxiety, Bereavement, Bullying Burnout, Depression, eating related issues, Life changes, Recurring illness, Relationship issues, Loneliness, Retirement, Spiritual questions, challenges and interests, Stress, Work related issues.

Choosing counselling or psychotherapy can be confusing. So here is some information about my service and how it works. Counselling / psychotherapy is offered on a one-to-one basis and usually lasts for 50 minutes. Counselling sessions will usually be at the same time on the same day each week. This can be discussed at your initial session. At the initial session we will explore together what is bringing you to therapy and to explore working together. If we do begin our work together there is the opportunity to review these arrangements. 

Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT)

So what is DIT and how is it different?

DIT stands for Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT). Briefly, it is a simple short term (16 sessions) individual therapy for mood disorder. This model was designed by experienced psychotherapists for use with clients seeking short term psychotherapy in NHS settings. The model was developed by identifying key components drawn from psychoanalytic/dynamic therapies, and then trialling the practice. As a result of the research this model of brief dynamic work is the one authorised to be rolled out nationally within the IAPT programme for work with depressed patients, alongside Counselling for Depression (humanistic model) and CBT (behavioural model).

This model is a good place to start if you have not had counselling or psychotherapy before as it is a time limited piece of work and it can help you explore relationship issues in a goal focused way. 
Please contact me if you are interested, and we can see if this is a suitable model for you.


Currently, my counselling and psychotherapy fees are as follows: £55 - £70 per session (including the initial session)


I understand that confidentiality may be a sensitive issue for clients. I seek to offer the highest level of confidentiality consistent with the law and the UKCP guidelines.

My Professional Standards

I have professional insurance and I am registered with the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP) and work in in compliance with the UKCP code of Ethics.
