Jayne O'Sullivan Post Graduate Diploma Psycho-dynamic Counselling (M.B.A.C.P).
I am currently training in nutritional and Meridian Psychotherapy. By incorporating these approaches into my work, I aim to offer a completely holistic approach to recovery.
I have trained Integratively, using this approach I am able to use a combination of approaches, including person centred, ( working in the here and now) and CBT, ( working on changing behaviours and thought patterns).
I have also completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Psych-dynamic Therapeutic Counselling. This approach concentrates more on how childhood experience may effect you in the present.
I have 20 years experience working both within Substance Misuse and Mental Health.
I also have experience working in a Solution Focused manner, this approach offers you the opportunity to focus on specific problematic areas.
Motivational interviewing helps you to focus on the positives, underpinning and promoting self-esteem and confidence.
If you are more of a visual person, I can offer mind mapping, again this approach concentrates on your personal resources. This helps to support and promote healthier choices, thus building resilience. I can work with you if you have suffered trauma or complex trauma. This specialist approach offers you support to safely explore the possible current triggers that may be causing you emotional pain.
Jayne and I have worked together for a few months now. Both counselling and group therapies. It has helped me a lot and Jayne is good at her job. I feel I can really trust Jayne and talk to her. Jayne works really hard and is always wanting to bring new and exciting things to the groups".
"I think my problem for a very long time has been lack of self-esteem. This has caused so many other problems in my life, to the point that before Christmas last year I didn't feel like I was worth much at all. I cant believe how much better I feel now. I feel human agian, I feel like a worthwhile member of society, I feel like I want to live my life again, I feel happy. To say I feel happy may not seem like much to most people, but to me it's so incredible, it really is amazing. I litterally can't express it enough. Jayne has guided me so well, always steering me in the right direction, giving me advice when I've needed it, giving me support and comfort when I've needed it, always reassuring me of how well I was doing and constantly helping me to find myself, to find that part inside of me that was confident and happy. It's extremely hard to put into words what she actually did and how it worked for me, I think it's just how nice, warm, welcoming, supportive and wanting to help she seems. I cant imagine where I would be without her".
" As an aside can I just add how impressed I was with the services you are offering vulnerable people and how your centre felt as a visitor. It had a real buzz about it- with great interaction between the service providers and the users, and the whole place felt well organized, active and under control. I hope this does not sound patronising but in my time as a trustee of **** and **** Foundation, I have visited several services and it was not always the case that one felt as impressed. You do some really good and important work for the community we live in. A big thanks for that."
" I have worked with Jayne as her therapist and subsequently her counselling supervisor. Jayne has always demonstrated an exceptional, intuitive approach to her work and training as a counsellor. She has a natural ability to intergrate phsychodynamic theoretical training, intuition and life experience, in her work, which enables the building of a bespoke, therapeutic relationship with her clients"
P.C. Psychodynamic Counsellor and supervisor.
" Jayne was able to use her skills to help my client explore issues which were impacting on her ability to care for her children. My client has been able to identify her attachment issues and co-dependencies; this has enbled her to take responsibility for her behaviour and move towards making more thought through decisions"
S.H Specialist Public Health Nurse.
" Jayne's ever growing knowledge and understanding of the human psyche has had a huge impact on mine and our services' treatment of clients. Jayne is always willing to pass on her learning to the team as she is incredibly committed to our service and clients"
P.W. Drug Therapist
" Jayne seems to have an uncanny way of making me open up about issues I never knew existed in myself. I've tried various mathods of treatment but found most ineffectual and boring. But Jayne seems to make the most mundane interesting. This lady is a massive asset to the service and to myself"
" Whilst working on my placement as a counsellor, Jayne has always offered me support. She always helps me reflect on my work and helps me to look at where it would be possible to look at different approachs with particular clients. Jayne's support has been invaluable to my progress as a student and as a counsellor".
D. P. Integrative Counsellor.
"I started having counselling and I feel like a completely different person, I have a whole new life and for the first time I truly feel I am in charge of my own destiny". Georgia
