Jane Catherine Severn is a Counsellor, Psychotherapist, Pascha Therapist and Supervisor, based in Otautahi, Aotearoa (Christchurch, New Zealand). In addition to her general therapy practice, she now offers Femenome® Therapy as her practice speciality.
Consultations are available in person or online, and include:
Individual support and therapy for a wide range of issues and questions.
Professional supervision for those working in health, therapeutic, social service, community and welfare services.
Femenome® Therapy - specialist assistance with issues arising in women's experience of their menstrual cycle, perimenopause, mature life or any aspect of feminine life.
What Is Femenome® Therapy?
Femenome® therapy is a newly created modality offered by Luna House. It assists women (and the men who love them) to understand and respond to whatever their Menstruality (menarche, menstrual cycle, menopause or mature life) may be presenting them with. The voices of our hormones can be very challenging to comprehend, difficult and disruptive to experience, and hard to accept.
Femenome therapy offers a radically new perspective, a unique and empowering approach that allows us to develop trust in the culturally unfamiliar but spiritually revelatory tutelage of our hormonal design. A whole new world opens to us as we learn the steps to a feminine health, healing, energy and wellbeing that may be quite different from what we have known before.
Femenome therapy can very effectively support women in any life issues, even those which do not appear to relate to our Menstruality.
What is Pascha Therapy?
Pascha Therapy is a new way of healing and transforming your life through understanding your feelings and knowing how to respond to them. Simple and gentle in its approach, yet profound and empowering in its effect, Pascha Therapy offers support that can help you to trust all that you feel, both emotionally and intuitively. Trust allows us to open more deeply to answers that may be beyond the reach of our mind alone. In learning to be guided by our heart’s messages and our soul’s intuition we can ensure that our deepest needs and spiritual intentions are included in the steps we take.
Many people these days are seeking a more heart-centred and spiritually inclusive approach to therapy and life. Pascha Therapy can assist and support you in new ways with any issue, question or difficulty you may encounter. Alternatively, it can simply offer you a deeply nourishing, soul-focussed way of knowing, being and expressing your Self in everyday life.

Supervision with Jane Catherine
I offer Professional Supervision to qualified or trainee Counsellors, Therapists, Health and related Practitioners, Community Agency workers, Social Service agency staff, or anyone seeking support in their work capacity.
I enjoy my role as a supervisor immensely, and consider it a privilege to engage with people whose career choices dedicate them in any way to the healing and support of humanity. For me the paramount purpose of supervision is to support the supervisee. Care and attention will be given not only to the work you are doing, but also to yourself as you do it. You will be invited to develop as fully as possible in your personal and professional capacities, with awareness of the balance that brings mutual enhancement between them. As well as exploring challenges and new learnings encountered in practice with clients, we acknowledge and celebrate successes, insights, beauty, passion and sacredness in the work.
Enquiries are always welcome. Get in touch to discuss your requirements. I am happy to offer an initial meeting, free of cost, so that potential supervisees can make an informed choice about working with me.
Practice Philosophy Statement
As a Pascha Therapist I offer a therapeutic process that is respectful, gentle and supportive, yet also powerful and deeply transformational. It is my belief that every person has a sacred purpose for their life, and a deep desire to achieve its fulfilment. For me it is a joy and a privilege to assist, as each step in healing, no matter how difficult, reveals beautiful aspects of self and the radiance within.
My approach as a Pascha Therapist and Femenome Therapist, as well as my work at Luna House, is guided by my faith in the Laws of Nature and their divine origin. This tells me that as human beings created in that same design, all aspects of us (no matter how troublesome they may seem) make sense and have purpose. Acceptance and understanding reveals that purpose, allowing an ever-deepening trust of ourselves that takes much of the struggle out of life. As we receive respect, care and patience in a therapeutic setting, we learn to cultivate these healing qualities in our relationship with ourselves and with others.
