Our Next Speaker Jane Netts
Jane has over 20 years’ experience working therapeutically and training in various settings with Individuals, Couples and Young people (11-18). As well as currently working in Schools she works with various counselling organisations, Eap’s and in private practice.
Following on from her counselling qualifications Jane gained a Post Graduate in Psychotherapy with a focus on working with Couples & Psychosexual Therapy at the then School of Counselling & Psychotherapy at the Whittington Hospital.
Since qualifying she has been working with couples privately and over the last ten years in the North East at Relate. She added to her couples work training with Tavistock Relationships in Working with Couples and Depression and using Mentalization Based Therapy (MBT) with a focus on conflict management within the Couple dynamic.
Recently she worked with a local charity on a pioneering project working therapeutically with couples where there is situational violence. This trial followed an initial project led by Tavistock Relationships, using MBT, aiming to reduce couple conflict. Couples learn to understand and manage conflict and reactivity safely within their couple dynamic and improve communication.
Jane has worked extensively in the area of parental separation, delivering family court ordered programmes to separated parents. As part of this work she also trained as a family consultant to assist in family cases where the parents opt to use collaborative law rather than the adversarial court system during their separation.
She has taught for several years as core tutor on a London Diploma course training student counsellors and since moving north she guest tutors on a counselling training up in the north east – building on her experience of teaching in London. She also offers supervision for Individual and couples work.
Jane enjoys using a relational style and is trained in a humanistic integrative approach which allows her to aim to choose the best fit for her clients and students when working individually, with couples or with groups.
