Janet Dewhurst


Member since


I am a qualified Cognitive Analytic Therapist (, full member since 2016). I love this form of therapy: it is an integrative, democratic and very practical synthesis of psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic approaches.

Recent trainings (2018-2019) have focussed on working with the body and I have integrated into my practice principles of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Cognitive Analytic Therapy and Embodiment. I am finding these very helpful in accessing and processing trauma which one way or another is so often a key component of therapy.

I have specialist experience in bereavement and for 10 years I provided 1-1 support for clients of all ages through Cruse Bereavement Care, Richmond, as well as group facilitation for adult bereavement support groups. I also supervised for Cruse and for the joint Cruse/Samaritans 'Facing the Future' project for those bereaved through suicide.

I enjoy working on relationship issues, self-image and issues around anxiety. I consider it a privilege to accompany people at times of their lives when their normal support and communication systems are no longer effective and to work out with them how to meet these challenges.

Given the current context of Covid-19, I am working online using platforms such as Zoom, WhatsApp and FaceTime. Please contact me on for my statement on the practicalities of online working.
