Jane Ryan

Jane Ryan trained as a psychotherapist at the Centre for Attachment-based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (CAPP) in the 1990s. Having worked in private practice for 8 years she set up Confer in order to bridge the theoretical gaps between schools of thought and professional communities in our field, and to provide a platform for interdisciplinary dialogue. She previously studied at the Canterbury School of Art, North London Poly and the University of Reading. She set up the multi-cultural community centre Kuumba in St Pauls, Bristol (formerly called The Inkworks). From there she went on to work for 15 years in community development projects, including Centerprise in Hackney, before training as a psychotherapist while working as a gardener. She is the editor of two books How Does Psychotherapy Work? (Karnac, 2006) and Tales of Psychotherapy (Karnac, 2007).
