Dr Jayde Sayers

Clinical Psychologist

I am a UK qualified Clinical Psychologist and with over 10 years of experience working within the NHS, the Prison and Probation Service, and the charity sector. I have recently moved from the UK therefore I can appreciate the highs and lows of transitioning from your home country to become an expat.  

I see myself as a warm, compassionate and approachable Clinical Psychologist who values each person’s unique individuality. My passion lies in providing a safe and supportive space for children, young people, and adults to share their challenges and work towards positive change. I aim to empower individuals to enhance their emotional well-being, via an integrative approach, often using flexible and creative approaches. I incorporate various therapeutic modalities and techniques; whether through simple conversation or more imaginative methods like drawing, play, and movement. I tailor my sessions to meet each individual’s needs.  

Understanding the uniqueness of human experiences, I utilize a range of therapeutic models, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Schema Therapy, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I also specialize in addressing harmful sexual behaviours in young people, employing models such as The Good Lives Model and AIM 3. 

 Born and educated in the UK, I earned my first psychology degree from Liverpool John Moore’s University. I have worked with young people and adults with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in social, emotional and mental health difficulty (SEMH) schools and community settings. Before beginning my doctoral training, I developed an NHS training program for healthcare staff within medical hospitals to support individuals with mental health difficulties. 

I started my doctoral training at The University of Liverpool in 2016. After qualifying, I worked within a young offender institution (YOI), where I primarily supported young people who had experienced trauma and attachment difficulties alongside challenges regulating their emotions and behaviour.  

I also supported the staff team to help recognise the young person’s strengths and challenges to support effective interventions. I then continued my interest in working with attachment and trauma in Adoption UK, a charity for adoptive parents and their children, focusing on trauma-informed therapeutic support for families across the UK. Alongside this role I worked in private practice; supporting adults with a wide range of mental health difficulties.  

Outside of my role as Clinical Psychologist, I also have a role as a wife and mother. I enjoy exploring the world with my family and spending time with friends, often enjoying different cuisines.
