Jill is a UK trained Psychotherapist who ran her own successful private practice in London and worked part-time as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist within an NHS service in London.  Jill is also qualified as an Eye-Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Practitioner.

Jill is an empathic, warm, and compassionate Psychotherapist.  She works with clients to explore the underlying aspects of themselves that they may not be aware of, to understand how they see themselves, how they deal with others and see the world.  She helps clients to understand why they keep behaving or thinking in a particular way, or why certain things keep happening to them (for example repetitive patterns in relationships). Jill works with clients to understand the influence their past experiences in life can have upon them in the present day as she believes that when a client has awareness of this, they can move towards changing these patterns of behaviour.

Jill has experience working with clients with a range of presenting issues.  Her areas of expertise include working with traumatic events, both cumulative and single events, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, stress, lack of confidence, struggling with decision making, grief, relationship issues, transitions.

As well as psychodynamic therapy, Jill integrates EMDR, Eye-Movement Desensitization Processing into her work with clients.

“Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders” (EMDRIA.ORG).  Jill is an approved therapist of the EMDR Association of Hong Kong.

Groups: Jill developed and independently ran process groups in the NHS for individuals who were struggling with bereavement and grief. Jill recognizes how isolating grief can be and the impact this has upon people and their relationships with others.

Jill is a native English speaker and can also work with clients who are Deaf and use British Sign Language.
