Britain’s youngest EuroMillions winner is spending £100,000 on a top psychologist to curb her “morbid” jealousy and transform her into “wife material”.
Jane Park has been flying London-based Dr Becky Spelman to her lavish home in Edinburgh or to holiday destinations for sessions.
The 22-year-old, who is dating Dundee footballer Jordan Piggott decided she needed help to halt the “psychotic behaviour” that saw her put a GPS tracker on her boyfriend’s car.
Jane has told friends the therapy sessions are to prepare her for marriage, the Daily Record reports.
A close pal said: “Jane’s really been working on her behaviour recently. She knows that, as a girlfriend, she can be hard work and is trying to change that. She wants to go from being a psycho girlfriend to wife material.
“Jane has hired Dr Becky Spelman. She’s budgeted £100k over the next year to have her by her side whenever she needs her.
“The psychologist’s fees are £2,000 a week but there is an extra cost as Jane can literally call her and book her straight on to a plane to be at her side, whether that’s at her home in Edinburgh, while visiting family in Oxford or on one of her many holidays each year.
She’s really opened up in therapy. She’s spoken about planting the tracker on her boyfriend, tackling her trust issues and the problems she’s faced since becoming a millionaire. Instead of being known as the ‘Lotto whinger’, she intends on proactively tackling her issues head on.”
Jane has repeatedly hit the headlines for her over-zealous antics and controlling ways. She issued ex Connor George with a long list of rules before a lads’ holiday in Ibiza.
She almost hired a private detective to keep an eye on Jordan, while former X Factor star Sam Callaghan reportedly ended their fling because of her “obsessive” behaviour.
In March, it emerged that Jane had consulted Dr Spelman in a bid to address some of her issues. And the millionaire has now revealed her growing dependency on the psychologist.
Jane told the Record: “I was a bit scared about seeing a therapist to begin with but I’ve now seeing how much it can help. I don’t like my fiery temper and it’s not fair on the people who are close to me.
“I’ve definitely improved a lot – already I don’t feel the need to have GPS trackers or give my boyfriends a set of rules any longer.
“Of course it’s not easy. There are times I need to call my therapist and stick her on a plane to be by my side for the day but, fortunately, the Lottery has enabled me to do that. If it’s working then I don’t see the problem.
“I have set aside a very large budget. Some people may see it as excessive but I think spending money on something that is going to change my life for the better is money well spent. I’m so happy in my relationship and I want to ensure my boyfriend is just as happy as I am.”
Jane was just 17 when she scooped £1million with the first EuroMillions ticket she ever bought. Despite enjoying a lavish lifestyle, she claimed the win had ruined her life, leading to reports she was considering suing Lotto bosses.
Jane, who met Jordan, 19, on Tinder, admits she never knows if men want her for love or for her cash. She previously told how her sessions with Dr Spelman were helping her work on her trust issues.
Jane said: “Whenever Jordan went somewhere I didn’t recognise, I’d call him and ask where he was, just to see if he lied to me – he had no idea I was monitoring him. Now, talking through anything that bothers me with Dr Spelman makes me realise I’m overreacting.”
Dr Spelman said: “Jane experiences morbid jealousy when she hasn’t learned to trust in a relationship. She also struggles to deal with other negative emotions.
“The fact she won the Lottery at such a young age put her in situations where she always got what she wanted and could call the shots on most things, rather than learning she can’t always get her own way.
This has resulted in her having poor boundaries when it comes to others and doing unacceptable things to get what she wants.
“Her poor emotional regulation will mean she also has low empathy when it comes to others as she doesn’t deal with her own emotions well. It also clouds her ability to consider and understand other people’s emotions, meaning her boyfriend’s feelings do not play a part in her decision making.
“This emotional blindness means she doesn’t consider how he feels when she takes actions such as tracking him. Jane has to do a lot of work on herself.”
Jane’s friend agreed. He said “Winning the Lottery has changed Jane’s life. Obviously there are times when it’s great but there is also a lot of pressure that comes from it.
“Jane has a portfolio of investments and receives begging letters every day, which really play on her mind.
“She has quite a frosty persona but deep down she’s really sweet and things definitely affect her.”
The pal added: “She’s a real romantic and realises she already has what most girls dream of. She just believes that therapy will help her become a better girlfriend and, eventually, wife material.
“Jane has talked about her desire to have a husband and a family one day. Becoming a millionaire at such a young age has caused her to build barriers and she is now slowly started to bring these down and let more people in.”
