How I work

Life can be a challenging journey, and I'm here to walk beside you as you navigate its twists and turns. I'm Jill, a qualified person-centred psychotherapist, and my passion lies in helping individuals like you find strength, resilience, and self-discovery.

Starting therapy takes courage and I am here to support you through the process. Together, we'll create a safe and welcoming space where you can explore your thoughts and emotions without judgment.

Every person's story is unique, and I'm here to honour and understand yours. I believe in a collaborative and client-centred approach. Your goals, values, and pace guide our work together and we'll work as a team to foster positive change in your life.

Examples of issues that clients commonly bring to me are:
depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, post-traumatic stress, abuse, coping with grief and loss, self-harm and relationship issues.

What is person-centred therapy?

In person-centred therapy, also known as client-centred or Rogerian therapy, the focus is on you—the person seeking help. My role is to create a warm and accepting environment, aiming to understand your feelings and experiences without judgment. The key idea is that you, as the client, lead the sessions, talking about what's important to you. It's like having a supporter on your journey of self-discovery, where you're encouraged to express yourself freely and work towards positive changes in your life.

Person-centred therapy is useful for a variety of challenges and concerns. It can be particularly beneficial for individuals experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, isolation, or hopelessness providing a supportive space to explore and acknowledge these feelings. It's also effective for those dealing with relationship issues, helping them navigate and understand their emotions in a safe environment. Additionally, person-centred therapy is valuable for individuals facing major life transitions, grief, or loss. The approach is versatile and can be adapted to various situations, making it a helpful resource for personal growth, self-discovery, and finding positive ways to cope with life's complexities. 

“We cannot change, we cannot move away from what we are, until we thoroughly accept what we are. Then change seems to come about almost unnoticed.”

How does online therapy work?

I provide online and telephone counselling through platforms like MS Teams and VSee. With this approach, there's no need for you to travel to an office, providing convenience and accessibility. Recognizing that some days leaving the house can feel overwhelming, I understand the importance of flexibility. I can accommodate sessions at times that suit your busy schedule.


My training includes a certificate in online and telephone counselling, ensuring a professional and effective therapeutic experience. All you need to do is find a quiet, comfortable space where you can speak freely without the risk of being overheard. For video sessions, it's beneficial to have a stable internet connection, so that our sessions can run smoothly.
