Jane Yale, Specialist Mental Health Mentor

12 May 2021

Please see this wonderful testimonial from one of fabulous team members, Jane Yale who works as a Specialist Mental Health Mentor in Liverpool.

โ€˜โ€™I have currently been employed with Keyfort for two and a half years and as a Specialist Mental Health Mentor and I am based in Liverpool, working within the various Universities. I feel privileged to be in a position where the continuing presence of hope, is always possible in order for the students to peruse their goals. ๐Ÿ’•

In particular, my role essentially involves working with a student centred approach; by means of taking a holistic view of the students journey, as we work in collaboration to systematically overcome any barriers to learning and to re-set old patterns. I have a strong rapport with the students, as I can relate to any issues that they may experience and can offer realistic strategies to overcome them โ€“ humour also helps.

A memorable moment for me was when a student sent me a thankyou card stating that she had achieved a 2.1 in her degree, after experiencing one or two setbacks. We worked through them together and her confidence and communication skills had grown so much that she has decided to go on to study teaching. ๐Ÿ’•

A typical day would usually involve myself and the student arranging a meeting at their University in a private room for around one hour, to review the work plans that we have set together and have a general chat about anything they wish to bring up. However, due to the pandemic the meeting are now arranged on zoom and has worked out favourably, as the zoom meetings allow for more flexibility. The meetings are completely confidential and are timed for usually around an hour, however the student is free to leave when ever they choose.

The managers are always supportive and the role of a Band 4 Mentor, has enriched my clinical skills and experience, in order to comfortably move towards becoming a Psychotherapist.
