Jill Eggleston MBACP, Registered Therapeutic Counsellor
Hello, my name is Jill Eggleston and I am based in Weymouth.I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
Anxious? Depressed? Relationship worries?
Are you experiencing difficult feelings?
Are you experiencing painful thoughts?
Are you experiencing problems in everyday life?
Counselling gives you an opportunity to look at any emotional or behavioural issues which may be
troubling you in a safe, therapeutic environment.
My previous experience as both a Teacher and a Teaching Assistant helped me to realise that I am interested in people and that I am a good listener.
As a Counsellor, I primarily work in a person-centred way, integrating other approaches in order to suit the individual needs of my clients.
I will not give answers or advice but will provide a safe, confidential space where you can explore thoughts, feelings and actions. I believe that a good relationship is at the heart of counselling and therefore I aim to understand you in a non‑judgemental and accepting way. I offer warmth, support and encouragement to enable you to find your own answers and discover a way forward.
