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.
