About Me

I'm an accredited integrative counsellor and psychotherapist and offer a supportive and confidential space where we can think about and explore together what's troubling you. It might be something you want to change, understand, or learn to accept.  Or perhaps you're feeling a more general sense of lacking vitality and meaning in life.

I draw on a range of approaches from the psychodynamic, humanistic and gestalt traditions and will aim to find a way of working that's a good fit for you.


I started working as a counsellor and therapist after spending the first part of my career in education, research, and other activities connected with media and the arts. During that time I gained a Masters' qualification in Cultural Theory from Cardiff University and a PhD in Media and Communications from Goldsmiths, University of London.  I'm interested in hearing about what moves and inspires you, as well as the difficulties you might be having.


When we meet, I'll ask you what you're looking for from counselling or therapy.  I offer open-ended, integrative psychotherapy and short-term, solution-focused work.  What's likely to be most effective for the particular issue you bring is something we can think about together. I continue to follow my creative inspiration and am open to working with you in a way that follows - or perhaps helps you to find - yours.

Psychotherapy & Counselling

with Jane Eldridge

Welcome to Jane Eldridge Therapy.  As an accredited integrative counsellor and psychotherapist serving the London area, I offer a supportive and confidential space where we can think about and explore together what's troubling you.


Sometimes people come to therapy with a particular symptom, after a significant life event or with work-related difficulties.  Other times it's more about not quite feeling fulfilled in life, career or relationships. I believe the many ways we come to understand and make sense of who we are, including how we relate to others and the world around us, are central to our mental health and physical well-being.  Unforeseen life events, separations, losses and disappointments can all profoundly affect our sense of who we are.

I work with young people (aged 16+), adults and couples. If you've not had counselling or psychotherapy before - and even if you have - starting can feel daunting.  If it's important to you, I can tell you about my training, my experience, and how I might work with the particular issue you bring. What matters is that we feel we can work together.


Issues I can help with:

  • depression and low mood

  • anxiety

  • panic attacks

  • family and relationship difficulties

  • questions around gender, sexuality and identity   

  • separation, loss and grief

  • trauma and PTSD

  • sexual, physical and emotional abuse

  • eating disorders

  • anger and domestic violence

  • problems at school, college or university

  • career difficulties and stress management

  • bullying

My practice is based in Sydenham, South London SE26.  It is easily accessible via public transport from Crystal Palace, Brixton, Herne Hill, Forest Hill, Dulwich, Streatham, New Cross, Catford, Lewisham and Croydon.   Premises are wheelchair accessible.

I offer sessions face to face in Sydenham, SE26, or online via Zoom. 

Once you have got in touch we can arrange an initial no-obligation consultation. This will be an opportunity for us to meet, for me to find out a bit more about what's going on for you, and for you to ask any questions you might have.  That is offered at a one-off, reduced fee of £50. If we decide to go on to work together, we will agree a time to meet on a regular basis.

Our work can be short-term or open-ended, depending on your particular needs and goals. I usually see clients once a week and offer twice a week in some circumstances.

Individual sessions cost £75 per weekly session.  Please enquire for fees for couples sessions. Fees are payable in cash or by BACS either on the day of your session or monthly in advance.

Terms & Conditions

Statement of understanding

Initial agreement

If we agree that working together would be useful, I'll offer you counselling or psychotherapy on an open-ended basis or for an agreed period of time.


Your counselling or therapy sessions will take place at the location agreed between us and last for 50 minutes.  Please bear in mind that if you're late or delayed, it won't be possible to continue beyond the usual finishing time.  The session time is reserved for you each week and missed sessions will be charged for unless I receive at least 48 hours' notice.  I may ask you to re-arrange sessions for holidays exceeding two weeks or other significant periods of absence.

I'll give you notice in advance of my holiday breaks and will try to inform you as soon as possible if I'm sick or unable to see you.  If I'm unable to attend, you'll not be charged and I'll tell you as soon as possible and/or try to rearrange the session.

Counselling and psychotherapy are most effective if you come to all the agreed sessions.  This is true even if previous sessions brought up difficult or uncomfortable feelings, as this can be part of the process.  If you're concerned about something that happened in your session, please come and tell me.  You are free to end your therapy at any point; however, it's important to let me know your intention so we can negotiate a suitable timescale for ending.


The fee for each session is £75. Please enquire for fees for couples. Fees are payable weekly at the beginning of the session, or monthly in advance. Please see above for terms relating to absences and missed sessions.  I review my fees periodically.

Personal Information

I'll ask for your personal address and contact details, and those of your GP.  I won't contact your GP without first seeking your permission except in a situation where I believe your own or someone else's life or physical safety is at risk.


I will use your personal information to provide counselling or therapy.  It will be stored in a password protected electronic device and destroyed at the end of our work.  The content of our sessions will not be disclosed to a third party unless I believe there is a threat to your own safety or that of others, or if I am obliged to do so by law.  My professional bodies, the BACP and UKCP, require me to be in supervision for all clients.  These supervision meetings are also confidential.


I abide by the BACP's ethical framework.  If you have a complaint that cannot be resolved between us, you may have recourse to the BACP independent complaints procedure.
