Hi, I’m Dr Jess Eade
I am a clinical health psychologist trained as a scientist-practitioner with over 25 years of experience in the field of psychology.
My foundational principles of practice are:
Your body wants you to be well
The mind, brain, body are dynamic interconnecting systems
Symptom root causes are unique to each person
You often have many more options (and control) than you realise
Daily choices and foundational lifestyle habits (diet, hydration, movement, stress management, joy) are a significant determinant of long-term health maintenance
Health and well-being are so much more than symptom resolution
Sustainable behaviour change requires more than good intentions
My approach to health and wellness is holistic, firmly based in the latest evidence with a strong emphasis on living a healthy (and were indicated menopause-friendly) lifestyle. A whole health approach means that I work to understand your unique situation by considering the biological, psychological, and social factors that influence your health and behaviour. This approach is important for whole health creation and sustainable behaviour change, as it considers the many factors and dynamic interactions that might underpin and keep your symptoms and problems going. It also highlights the factors that might get in the way of change making, including unprocessed emotion and trauma. I am trained in several therapeutic approaches, including EMDR for trauma. I also have a good understanding of the impact of neurodiversity on health, lifestyle, and behaviour change.
My practice encourages you to consider lifestyle factors as an essential part of supporting and sustaining behaviour change. Changing the way that you live your life can help you prevent, manage, and potentially reverse many persistent or lifestyle-related health conditions.
