Jane’s first psychology class as a teenager ignited her passion, and after 15 years experience as a psychologist she’s still seeking new learning opportunities. Jane spent 4 years working with the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service, focusing mostly on adolescent support. Before this, her work centred on assisting children, adolescents and adults with a mental health problem and intellectual disability and/or autism. Jane has also worked with clients experiencing suicidality and self-harm, providing risk assessments in community and hospital settings.
Jane has a keen interest in supporting those currently coping with and processing psychological trauma, having seen the impact trauma can have on an individual’s sense of self, and world view. Seeing the change support can make in such circumstances has been a profound reward of Jane’s work. In doing so she has experience working with people who have general anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression and bipolar disorder.
Jane is passionate about helping people identify what matters to them, and how to manage the obstacles to that habit. Her practice is LGBTQIA+ friendly and open to individuals of every background. Tailoring to the individual Jane employs a variety of evidence based therapies such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (including Trauma Focussed Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing, Solution Focussed and Brief therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (informed).
