For Clinical Partners, Dr McNeill is now specialising in the treatment of PTSD, Complex Trauma and Anxiety Disorders using EMDR and other evidence-based psychological therapies. Jane is a fully accredited EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner having trained with Sandi-Richman, Consultant Psychologist, past president of the EMDR UK and Ireland Association.

Jane views every client as unique and she likes to develop a safe, therapeutic relationship where she can begin to develop a thorough understanding of the client’s needs and preferences. She works primarily from a Cognitive Behavioural and Compassion focussed perspective. For Trauma and other complex needs, she uses EMDR (Eye Movement De-Sensitisation Re-Processing) and Schema Therapy. EMDR targets past experience, current triggers, and future potential challenges, results in the alleviation of presenting symptoms, a decrease or elimination of distress from the disturbing memory, improved view of the self, relief from bodily disturbance, and resolution of present and future anticipated triggers. Where appropriate, Jane draws on Feeling and Ego State approaches.
Jane has a particular interest in Anxiety Disorders, PTSD, Health Anxiety and OCD. She works alongside the client to develop a healthier response to anxiety and distress. In the case of Medically Unexplained Symptoms and long-term conditions, Jane works with the client towards a better quality of life and the effective management of symptoms, particularly in the treatment of conditions which don’t appear to have a medical cause or medical treatment.
Jane has over 10 years’ experience working in the management consultancy sector and designs and delivers psychological workshops on low self-esteem, assertiveness training, anger management, eating disorders, substance misuse and the fundamentals of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). She is adept at targeting these at her specific audiences, be they children, adolescents or adults and she also has experience working specifically with women dealing with self-esteem issues and managing life changes.
