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 and 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. It is a big step to approach someone who doesn't know you and tell them how you feel - however, it can be a life changing and affirming experience.

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 am not an expert - you are the expert on you. I will listen and support you. We will establish a safe, professional relationship based on trust and respect. Please call/email me if you would like further details. Thank you.
