Jac Payne

BA (Psych), B Sc (Hons) Psych, MCAP


Jac’s extensive clinical experience, both within Australia and in the  UK, has enabled her to gain valuable insight into being able to best support her clients in a variety of ways: cultivating greater confidence and self-esteem, supporting development of richer relationships with partners, family & children, and in achieving greater emotional balance and an increased sense of wellbeing.

Jac prefers a multi-modal approach, whereby the needs/goals of each client determines the tools/techniques best suited to the working relationship. Jac is highly competent in evidence-based therapies such as CBT/DBT, and frequently uses these in conjunction with Narrative therapy.

Jac also specialises in working with adolescents, particularly those that have turned to self-harming, alcohol & / or substance abuse, or those who are feeling overwhelmed and lacking in focus or direction.

Jac’s experience and expertise also extends to corporate settings in which she has provided services that include; training and counselling, industrial relations, learning and development strategies, HR advice and consultation, employee engagement and cultural assessments and management training and mentoring.

Jac offers individual therapy sessions, telephone therapy sessions & E – sessions. Jac also co-facilitates, with Julianne Grant, a psycho-educational adolescent group therapy programme based on a DBT model.
