Jane Tillier is an independent psychotherapist and consultant with a longstanding curiosity about what drives human interaction, conscious and unconscious. She has over 30 years of experience in offering warm, creative, relational, and inclusive work with individuals and groups in a wide variety of settings such as education (school and university), healthcare and church. She is passionate about the centrality of culture and creativity in expanding human capacity to relate responsively and responsibly to self, to others and to the wider world.
With a background in the study of Modern Languages and Theology and with a Cambridge PhD in Spanish, she was among the first women to be ordained priest in the Church of England in 1994. She is also a UKCP-listed senior trainee psychotherapist. She has long been interested in questioning (for herself and others) what might support the move from surviving to thriving. She is in the process of completing her MSc in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy at the Metanoia Institute, Middlesex University – completion due May 2021.
Jane brings skills and experience in working with, and paying attention to, presence and process, especially in relation to mental health and wellbeing. She enables individuals and teams to grow their awareness and their capacities in relational ways of working, complementing and enhancing other areas of professional and strategic development. She enjoys working alongside colleagues to create ‘containing’ spaces (short courses, process groups, away days, retreats) where courageous, creative and whole-hearted work can occur.
