Who am I?

I’m Dr Jane Major, the founder of The Room Between. I’m an experienced clinical psychologist and relationship therapist. I am registered with HCPC, a member of the British Psychological Society and the British Infertility Counselling Association. I’ve worked with individuals, couples and families affected by emotional and relationship issues since 2002 within the NHS, the third sector and within private practice. I qualified as a clinical psychologist in 2008 and undertook further training in couple and family systemic psychotherapy at the Institute of Family Therapy. I’m passionate about helping people understand themselves in the context of their histories, relationships, environments, life experiences and resources. I have a keen awareness of the impact of relationships and life events on our emotions and wellbeing and this, in part, is what led me to undertake a further 3 year training in couple and individual psychodynamic psychotherapy at Tavistock Relationships where I was a visiting clinician.

Who I work with

I work with individuals, couples, groups and families. I am experienced in working with a wide range of relationship and emotional issues and I have a specialist interest in working with the impact of fertility and perinatal trauma (including IVF, donor conception, miscarriages, still births, and birth trauma), the impact of neurodiversity (including ADHD and autism), adjusting to parenthood, separation and divorce, the impact of disability and illness and the loss of a child. I specialise in working with attachment traumas including bereavement and I have specialist training in somatic trauma therapy, EMDR, and flash technique.

How I work

I work integratively which means that I draw upon a range of models of therapy and tailor them to best suit your needs and preferences. My approach is trauma informed and holistic and I am particularly influenced by systemic psychotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, somatic trauma therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and EMDR. I work with individuals, couples, multiples and families. My approach to working with you is informal, transparent and explorative. I offer supervision to clinical and counselling psychologists and consultations and training to teams and organisations.

Personal

Outside of The Room Between I am mindful of my own self-care which includes having my own therapy, regular treks into the Peak District, making time to connect with my friends and family as well as quality time with my two dogs – Ruby and Charlie.

Who I work with

I am passionate about supporting adults with a range of emotional, relational and mental health needs. This includes individuals who may be struggling with feelings of anxiety, panic, fear, low mood, anger and irritability and feelings of guilt and shame, as well as low self-esteem and self- confidence. I have supported individuals who want to make sense of past experiences, such as trauma and loss. I have further training in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and Somatic Trauma Therapy, which assists people to further develop coping skills and create a sense of stability in their lives. I am experienced in supporting individuals to make sense of, recognise and revise counterproductive patterns or dynamics that may be playing out in their relationships, some of which may include patterns of self-sabotage, people pleasing, avoidance, seeking to escape painful feelings or battles for control. I offer psychological assessments and recommendations as well as individual therapy.

How I work

I draw on a wide range of psychological models and theories, depending on which approach seems best suited to your needs. I use a relational approach and I’m largely influenced by cognitive analytic therapy, as well as a knowledge of trauma and cognitive approaches, such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness and Compassion Focused Therapy.
