Self Sense Development & Training is an experiential training body set up by Gill Harvey and Jean Staff.  Both are integrative psychotherapeutic counsellors who works in private practice in Suffolk.  Gill's style of counselling is relational and involves helping clients to achieve personal integration by looking at patterns in their past and present relationships.  She has more than two decades of experience working in the Criminal Justice field before training as a counsellor. As well as her private practice work she has been employed as a therapist working with people impacted by addiction.  Jean also teaches counselling skills at West Suffolk College and in her client work she focuses on an exploration of client relationships with others and with ‘the self’.  Our workshops are aimed at trainee counsellors and those with an interest in counselling and self/ personal development.


Our next experiential training workshop will take place in

Key Concepts in Counselling Theory - Sub-Personalities and Integration

Have you ever felt divided?

Experienced being in 'two minds'?

Felt that different parts of you are wanting different things?


This half day workshop will help you to become aware of the many different parts or sub-personalities within yourself.  By learning about the counselling theory of Sub-Personalities and using guided fantasy to identify parts of yourself, you will gain insight into your feelings and behaviours.  In this workshop we will cover:

      Sub-Personalities theory – how the psyche is comprised of many parts

      Internal Conflicts and Polarities – how dialogue between opposing sub-         personalities can help resolve internal conflicts

Please note that this workshop covers aspects of the Psychosynthesis theory of counselling, we will not be covering Multiple Personality Disorder of Dissociative Disorders
