About me

Hello, my name is Jill Eggleston and I am based in Weymouth. I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor. I offer a free half hour initial session, I am fully insured and I offer concessions for students.

What is Counselling?

Counselling is a chance for you to talk and to be really heard. It is an opportunity to explore anything that is worrying you.

As a Counsellor, I primarily work in a person-centred way, integrating other approaches in order to suit the individual needs of my clients.  We will establish a safe, professional relationship based on trust and respect. I will support you to reconnect with your sense of self worth and find your own way to move forwards. I believe that you are the expert on you! I offer both short and long term work. I attend regular supervision in order to ensure safe and ethical practice. My experience includes working with bereavement, anxiety, depression, sadness, general unhappiness and low self esteem.

I offer a free half hour appointment which is a chance for us to meet and to decide whether I can offer you the support you are looking for. There is no pressure for you to commit at this session. If you decide to come back we will arrange a weekly appointment - usually the same day and time.

Please call/email or text me if you would like further details. I may not be able to answer your call so please leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
