Jane Doidge

I am an accredited Play Therapist, Gestalt Counsellor, Counsellor for children and young people, senior supervisor and EMDR Therapist in training. I work in two primary schools offering Play Therapy to children and a secondary school offering Creative Counselling to young people. The rest of my week I work from my home in Dawlish offering face to face and online supervision as well as individual adult creative counselling, and EMDR therapy. All my client work today is based on three main theories intertwined, and yet there are other less dominant approaches that have enriched my practice and continue to do so. Both Carl Rogers ‘Person Centred Approach’ and Fritz Perls ‘Gestalt Therapy’ have been a constant since I first began training. Later when I trained to become a Play Therapist, I became influenced greatly and continue to be by attachment theory. I have recently started training as an EMDR Therapist and have started to offer this more specialised trauma-based therapy to individual children, young people, and adults, to help target the disturbing life events that are currently impacting on their quality of life in the present day. The content of the trauma is often not as disturbing as where the memory is stored, in short term memory frozen in time and ready to be activated by any one of the senses. The therapy targets integrating the fragmented memory, which once done, naturally shifts in its more complete form to long term memory where the event can be accessed at the person's choosing without the original charge of feelings. I am very excited about integrating this into my practice.
