Dr Jane Major - Chartered Clinical Psychologist & Relationship Therapist

You may be looking for therapy for many different reasons. Perhaps it is one issue, relationship or life event that is pertinent, or, it may be a combination. You may not know what exactly it is that is bringing you to therapy but you might have a general feeling of apathy or a wish to better understand, and manage, your relationship with yourself, your feelings and others.
Struggling to cope with feelings and relationships is fairly common but sadly not talked about enough. Many of us will be affected by considerable difficulties managing these at different stages of our lives.
I hope that together we can develop a relationship within which you feel safe enough to talk to me about your context and what you may be struggling with. I think it is helpful to understand your strengths as well as your difficulties.
I work with individuals and couples to develop a safe space where together we can develop awareness, and compassion for, your feelings and needs.
Our work is to think about “what has happened to you” rather than “what is wrong with you”. This can include exploring your relationship patterns including how you relate to yourself, your feelings, life events and others.
Sometimes we can look at ourselves from one perspective ignoring alternatives, strengths, and exceptions. Together I hope we can develop an understanding of your experiences, feelings and relationships that is personally meaningful. This can include expanding how you relate to yourself, your feelings, events and significant others.
I positively affirm my clients gender, sexuality and religious and spiritual beliefs.
I offer therapy online via Zoom which is easy to use and secure. This way of working offers flexibility and accessibility and is as effective as face-to-face therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience
Training & Qualifications:
I undertook my Doctoral training in Clinical Psychology at The University of Surrey.
I have undertaken further specialist training in couple and family therapy completing a graduate and postgraduate certificate in Couple & Family Therapy at the Institute of Family Therapy.
I completed the Graduate and postgraduate Certificate, in couple and individual counselling and psychotherapy at Tavistock Relationships.
I am also a certified cyber therapist which means that I have undertaken postgraduate training in online therapy via the Online Therapy Institute.
Since 2002 I have worked in the NHS, the third sector and in private practice with people affected by emotional distress. I am experienced in working with individuals, couples, families and groups.
I use an integrative approach which means that I will use different types of therapy to best meet your needs. I am able to draw upon my experience and training in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), psychodynamic psychotherapy, systemic family therapy and emotionally focussed therapy (EFT).
I am a warm, empathic and reflective practitioner. I will work with you to create a safe space within which you can talk about any issues which you would like to make sense of and learn to manage. This can sometimes include thinking about both the past and present including thinking about your context and social and cultural factors.

I am currently offering online therapy sessions only via Zoom which is similar to Skype, and as easy to use, but more secure.
Online therapy is also known as "e-counselling", "telehealth", "video therapy" and "Skype therapy". Clients have reported finding online therapy accessible and effective. This type of accessibility can be particularly helpful for people with busy work schedules, mobility issues, and/or with child care and family responsibilities.
Accessing therapy online also means that you can see a therapist, such as myself, who has specialist training but may not practice near to where you live or work. It can also be very beneficial in encouraging those who might not normally access therapy, due to fear or stigma, to access therapy privately through the use of their own computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
