About Jane

Helping people help themselves

A specialist in short-term self-help since 1983, I trained as an autogenic therapist with the late Dr Wolfgang Luthe (a leading researcher of AT).

As a Founder Member of the British Autogenic Society, I have served on its Executive Committee for many years. I am a tutor and supervisor on the BAS Diploma professional training courses.

I run AT courses in private practice, the workplace and complementary health centres.

I am currently working as Senior Autogenic Therapist (one of a team of four) at the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine, Great Ormond Street WC1 where Autogenic Training has been on offer to NHS patients for over 20 years.

I work with all age groups. I believe that each person has the power to make profound changes in life, using simple strategies to change attitudes and old habits.  My aim is to help people help themselves to improve their well-being, and gain insight for personal growth and development.

My style is to allow the client’s process of change with positive encouragement and gentle challenge in a supportive and safe setting.

Corporate stress management

I have worked with AT in companies, and markedly reduced absentee levels.
