Jane is an experienced and highly respected psychotherapist. For many years Jane worked as an innovative trainer and guidance counsellor, supporting disaffected young people. Jane actively supports the theoretical and practical development of Values-based Education (VbE) worldwide and is one of its key thinkers and presenters. In recent years she has studied the Internal Family System (IFS) of psychotherapy in the UK and USA. Her particular academic and professional interests are focused on supporting both adults and children to understand their inner world of thoughts, sensations, emotions and behaviours. She believes that as we compassionately open our hearts and minds to our internal world, it releases our sense of Self, which is essential when establishing a peaceful, loving world.
