Who am I?

I’m Dr Jane Major, the founder of The Room Between. I’m an experienced clinical psychologist and couple therapist. I’m registered with HCPC, a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the British Infertility Counselling Association (BICA). 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. The relationships we have can impact how we feel about ourselves, our experiences and how we relate to others.  That’s why I’ve undertaken specialist training both in trauma and relationships.  This has included at the Institute of Family Therapy and Tavistock Relationships.

Who I work with

People choose to work with me because they are struggling in their relationships and find that patterns from their past seem to be repeating.  Sometimes this can relate to issues in their childhood.  People talk to me about struggles with their fertility and the impact of this.  This has included the impact of losing a baby and the heartache and grief they are left managing.  I’ve worked with people who are reeling from the discovery of an affair and want space to process their shock and figure out what life looks like for them now.  Many couples speak to me because they want to work out how to argue better and appreciate their partners rather than being stuck in cycles of familiar arguments.  I work with people who recognise that they struggle with emotional intimacy and want to change how they show up in relationships.

How I work

Coming to therapy can feel daunting so I aim to foster a sense of safety so you can share with me whatever you need at a pace that works for you. I’m warm and informal in my approach and try to be transparent about my thinking.  I’m influenced by therapies that think about how our relationships, and contexts impact us.   I draw upon systemic psychotherapy, emotionally focused therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, somatic trauma therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and EMDR.

Personal

I like to be outdoors and on the move and enjoy walking my dogs in the Peak District.  I love reading and spend a lot of my time doing courses- largely related to my work.  I love a Netflix series,  going to see live comedy gigs, trying food from different cultures, connecting with my friends and family and travelling either in the U.K. or abroad.

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.

Personal

Outside of work I enjoy keeping fit. I am a running enthusiast and enjoy swimming and aerobics. I recognise and value the importance of balance with sleep, exercise and diet as an important part of self-care.
