Counselling Services based in Henley on Thames

Jill Poll - CounsellorMy name is Jill, and I’m a conscientious and caring counsellor registered with the BACP (British Associated for Counsellors and Psychotherapists), whose Ethical Framework I abide by. I work from my private rooms in Henley on Thames. I have a real passion for helping adults, young people and children to understand their emotions and find the right way forward for themselves.

I’m able to empathise with individuals but at the same time retain an objective and realistic approach to their treatment and therapy. I feel very comfortable working and communicating with people from all backgrounds and have experience of many different issues.

I have always been aware of how I warm to the more challenging teenager, and feel that I can look beyond specific behaviours to understand any difficulties and channel their energies into fulfilling their potential as an individual.

I also have a passion for working with bereaved children and their families, along with experience of working with younger children in a creative way to help them express themselves in a way which they feel comfortable.

It is important to me that I am alongside all my clients while they work with me, helping them to go on a journey of self-exploration which can result in a renewed sense of self-belief, whether they are an adult, young person, or a child.

There are many reasons why people come for counselling and I have worked with adults, young people and children with varying issues. I believe in forming a trusting relationship with my clients so that each person feels truly unique. I believe that is what works, and it is increasingly being recognised that the quality of the relationship between the client and counsellor is the main therapeutic agent, regardless of theoretical orientation.
