Jane Poutney
Psychologist

Jane is a registered psychologist with a Master's Degree in Social Science (Psychological Practice) and she also holds a Graduate Diploma in Systemic Practices and Family Therapy. With a wide range of work and life experience over 25 years as a psychologist, she is skilled in dealing with varied and complex situations.

In your first appointment with Jane, her immediate focus will be on providing a calm therapeutic environment which helps you feel at ease, and in reassuring you that you will be listened to in a thoughtful and non-judgemental manner. She will work with you at your own pace to clarify your concerns, and to explore ways for you to deal with them.

People come to see a psychologist for very normal human worries: life changes, relationships beginning or struggling or ending, illness, anxiety, depression, loneliness, and loss. It can be very helpful to speak to someone outside of your immediate circle, who is focused on your options and choices for managing or overcoming your distress. Jane will work with you to do this, helping you to develop your resilience, become more aware of your own strengths, and to develop new skills if you want to do so.
