Jennifer Lillie - Individual and Couples Counsellor
I offer confidential, integrative counselling for Couples and Individuals. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression are having panic attacks or are needing to talk about relationships, together we can find those inner resources that enable you to grow, heal and move forward. We meet in a calm space overlooking a garden where you can talk about anything you feel you would like to.
From a Person-Centred background, I have now integrated my learning and understanding into one authentic way of counselling, which I feel will allow me to meet with your unique needs. I will listen to what you have to say and help you look at your emotions, your experiences, your thinking, going back to your childhood experiences, (even help you look at your spirituality) should you choose, in order to help you find the inner resources required for well-being.
In addition if meaning and direction are important to you then we can look at the spiritual aspects of your life. My background may be beneficial to those wanting to explore their Christian faith.
I am well qualified; an accredited member of BACP and am well experienced with over 10 years working with clients.
I volunteered at Lyttleton Well counselling Service in Malvern for many years and am still affiliated to them.
I was the student counsellor at Regents College in Malvern from 2012 to 2017.
I regularly keep up to date with Personal Development attending many refresher and informative workshops/training. In 2018 I was Rewind trained for PTSD.
What They Say
Recently I asked former clients for small sound bites/comments for my website
"Made me think a lot, sometimes about things i did not realise I had in me, very kind and easy to talk to."..GR: February 2020
"Jenny is incredibly skilled in what she does...I have been made very welcome and seen this as a safe place where I can be truthful, happy and open"...NM: October 2019
"I am very grateful to Jenny for providing a judgment free and safe environment for me to say those things that I hadn't dared to say out loud to myself, let alone anyone else. Jenny encouraged me to talk, to explore my thoughts and to consider myself a fascinating human being, one worthy of my own self-care and self-approval for being my own fallible self.!"...R: July 2019
Training, qualifications & experience
BACP Registered and Accredited Counsellor
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
