Special interest area
Alcohol & Drug Issues & Addiction
Jill has extensive experience of working in the addiction field, including alcohol, drugs, prescription medication, gambling and obsessive behaviour.
A placement at The Priory Hospital established an excellent grounding in working with these issues and her continuing work at a residential drug and alcohol treatment centre has allowed Jill to build a solid understanding and empathic approach in this area.
For some people, the use of alcohol may have become an issue in their lives but they would not call it an addiction or alcoholism. Many people use alcohol at times of stress and then find it hard to put it down - that it becomes a more and more important part of life; that it starts to cost you more than money (perhaps it is starting to cause arguments at home or difficulties at work). Asking for help or even acknowledging that drinking has become a problem can be a daunting prospect - counselling with Jill will be discreet, safe and confidential.
Others will already be acutely aware of their addiction to alcohol but just not know what to do about it. You may have tried to stop before but not be able to 'stay stopped'. This counselling will offer you the chance to look closely at the issue and affect is having on your life. Together we will work on plans to make the changes you want - and again, it is important that every client feels that this counselling is safe, confidential and discreet. This process will not be judgemental nor will it be critical, it is vital that the client feels accepted in this counselling process and that there is a real chance for change. To be able to feel some hope.
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 - that they have tried everything but nothing ever changes. Jill offers counselling to anyone whose life is affected by the drinking or addiction of another person.
