About Jan Dowling

Grad.  Dip. Pastoral Counselling (CSU)
Grad.  Dip. of Soc. Sc. in Family Therapy
Licenced Facilitator in Refocussing Therapy

Jan is passionate about connecting people with Gods’ empowering presence. She is eager to see others discover their identity, purpose and envisage a ‘wholesome’ perspective for their lives. For the past 18 years Jan has been privileged to work with Refocussing Therapy.

In 1995, Jan embarked on a journey to reinvent herself. Her education in nursing training and pastoring has been a great for runner for the successful adventure. She has been greatly impacted by observing significant changes and enhancement in the lives of others (as well as her own) through Refocussing.  She obtained a Grad Dip in Pastoral Counselling (CSU) and Grad Dip of Social Science in Family Therapy whilst being trained, mentored and supervised in Refocussing Therapy by its author Dr. Diane Divett. This strong relationship between Jan and Diane continues to this day.

Jan has worked in private practice for approximately 15 years. In 2006 she pioneered the C3 Counselling Service in Vermont Victoria which hosted a team of counsellors and psychologists who offered Refocussing as part of their professional services. In 2009 she joined the team of Life Builders Inc. in Melbourne. This move freed her to spend more time travelling to teach and train.

Over the past five years Jan has worked extensively across regional NSW where resources are often limited. Her time has been spent developing a country private practice whilst supporting country churches and providing Refocussing Therapy and God Space training in country, Sydney and Melbourne areas.
