Talking Therapies can be life changing - they can help you find new ways of thinking and behaving that will help you deal with issues that are difficult for you.

Jill has a special interest in two areas - Addiction and Fertility.
Addiction - For some people, the use of alcohol/substances/behaviours reaches a crisis point. Consequences become challenging and even overwhelming. Counselling will offer you the chance to look closely at the issue and affects on your life. Together we will work on plans to make the changes you want. This process will not be judgemental nor will it be critical. Whilst working in this field, Jill has also gained experience of working with the families and loved ones of alcoholics and addicts. Their own lives can be seriously affected by the actions of the alcoholic/addict and frequently they feel as if they have no-one to turn to.
Fertility - As a member of the BICA Executive Committee, Jill is actively increasing her experience in this field. She has provided Fertility Implications Counselling for several private clinics.
