Jane Stewart psychologist

My background and experience

Jane is a registered psychologist with over 15 years experience providing counselling to young people and adults. Jane focuses on developing a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space and values the importance of a holistic approach to wellbeing. Jane works collaboratively with clients to assist them to gain insight into their experiences, and to identify patterns that may be contributing to their current symptoms and concerns. Jane believes in the importance of the client feeling safe and ready enough to engage in therapy, but also feeling encouraged and supported to explore areas that might feel challenging. She believes in the potential for people to incorporate the impact of difficult experiences into an enhanced sense of identity, purpose and meaning in their life.

Jane has previously worked within the community sector providing counselling to individuals with a broad range of presenting issues, mental health symptoms, and diverse socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds.

Jane has provided counselling for individuals who have experienced complex trauma, including sexual assault, sexual abuse, physical assault, family violence and other traumatic events.
