Jenna Goodgame
Consultant Placeholder 360X246

Alongside my passion for working with individuals and families, I also offer supervision to clinicians, lecture at a number of educational establishments and offer consultancy.

I am also a qualified yoga and meditation teacher and combine this holistic approach within my therapies.

My expertise focus on the theme of attachment and nurture. I have worked for many years in the field of adoption and fostering and most recently my work has developed into the boarding school environment. I specialise in working with trauma and attachment difficulties.

My core ethos is that we all have the opportunity to foster change, for our lives to improve and gain happiness, no matter what our history and experience entails. With nurture, empathy and a place to belong, we can achieve anything.

Alongside my clinical work, I have also worked in academia as a senior lecturer and researcher for the past 15 years – most recently at Oxford University. I also run a private practice, The Nurture works.

Position at Priory

Supervising Therapist, providing one-to-one intervention, supervision, group therapy and MDT co-ordination.
