About me

My name is Jane Dyson and I have been helping individuals of all ages to breathe again for more than a decade, working for the Samaritans and the NHS.

I became a Samaritan in 2012 and volunteered at my local branch for 7 years before work and study commitments took over.

In 2019 I began working for North Staffordshire NHS Trust as a staff counsellor based at the Royal Stoke Hospital. During the Covid pandemic, counselling moved online and I qualified as an online and telephone counsellor.


I continued working for the NHS until 2022 when I set up my own private practice also working initially online. 

Since 2023, I have been seeing clients face to face in a purpose-built therapy room in Macclesfield town centre, as well as also seeing clients online at home. 

Prior to training as a counsellor I worked mainly in schools, having qualified as a teacher in 1992. I hold a degree in psychology from the University of Sheffield and a diploma in psychotherapeutic counselling  from the University of Staffordshire. 

I have four children and while they were growing up I volunteered for several schools and set up a parent and toddler group in my local town. My children are now grown up, with three having left home, so I have experienced the trials and tribulations that childhood and adolescence can bring.

When my youngest was diagnosed with ADHD I decided to undertake additional training in this area and have also gained experience working with people of all kinds of neurodiversity. I am a certified trauma professional and an ADHD Clinical Service Provider.
