My name is Dr Jane Woodward and I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist who offers private therapy.
I have substantial experience working in the field of Mental Health across the life span, amounting to nearly 20 years in a variety of roles and settings. I am passionate about working alongside individuals on their journeys moving beyond psychological distress, towards flourishment, hope, and well-being. My values are very much centred on compassion and being non-stigmatising.
I work with a variety of mental health challenges that people face, from feelings of anxiety and worry, through to helping survivors of abuse, trauma, and PTSD reclaim their lives and thrive once more. Sometimes people come into therapy feeling lost, stuck, and overwhelmed and don’t always have an obvious single ‘problem’ they wish to work on – that is fine too.
I am trained to deliver a variety of therapies, including EMDR used with trauma. My approach isn’t prescribed, but rather I work in a flexible and collaborative way, and tailor my work in a way that best empowers clients to move towards positive change.
Please contact me by email or telephone for more details, or to arrange an initial assessment to discuss your current difficulties and plan how we can work together to help your situation. Often it can feel daunting starting on a journey of therapy, so remember that no question is too silly to ask. I encourage a sense of openness and honesty between myself and the people that I work with.
My hourly rate is £90, but I also have reduced fees available for those on no or low incomes.
