Brisbane Trauma Informed Practitioners

Jane Bowman

I work with a variety of issues including problematic substance use, depression, anxiety, trauma and disordered eating. My focus is on assisting my clients to live their life more fully wherever they are. This includes those who are struggling with significant mental health issues to those who feel they need shorter term effective and professional support.

I offer a warm, professional, and effective service with a focus on safety, transparency, and respect. I draw upon my experience of working with a wide variety of issues to tailor therapy to you and your individual situation. I have a focus on providing high quality services in ways that are accessible.

Qualifications and Experience:

I completed a Bachelor of Applied Social Sciences (Counselling) in 2009 and a Master of Social Work in 2012. I am an Accredited Mental Health social worker and a member of the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW).  I am an ANZAED credentialed Eating Disorder Practitioner which recognises my training, skills and experience to provide eating disorder treatment.

I am able to work with Mental Health Care Plans and Eating Disorder Treatment Plans allowing for a Medicare rebate to be claimed.

Models and theories used in treatment:

I am trained and work effectively with the following modalities:

  • IFS (Internal Family Systems)
  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing)
  • CBT E (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Eating Disorders)
  • Acceptance and Commitment therapy

  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Applied attachment theory including Circle of Security


I have been a therapist for over 13 years and I have worked within a number of non-profit organisations. I am currently in private practice where I offer counselling services to individuals (children, and adults) as well as couples/family groups.
