Welcome to Hope Valley Counselling

- Helping you complete the jigsaw.

Thank you for visiting my website. I am currently on sabbatical, following completing my PhD research dissertation/thesis and will return to work full time on 9th January 2017. Please do contact me then and thank you for your patience.


In the meantime, please look around and see if there is anything I can support you with in the New Year.


I specialise in offering Post Cult Counselling to former members of abusive groups, high demand groups, cults, one-on-one cults or relationships and spiritual abuse amongst other things (see Services page).


Hope Valley Counselling Limited was set up in August 2006 by the Directors, Gillie and Tony Jenkinson, to provide psychotherapy, Post-Cult CounsellingHVC, 'Time Away in the Peak District', supervision, consultancy, group work and training. Gillie is a psychotherapist (see the 'Experience' section). Tony deals with financial matters and is a consultant for the company.


The company is named after the area in which it operates - the Hope Valley - which is a beautiful part of North Derbyshire, in a National Park, and an area of outstanding natural beauty (see photos).


Hope Valley Counselling is a Company Registered in England and Wales No: 5889067.


A note from Gillie Jenkinson about an exciting PhD project:

I have been examined and have passed my PhD and am now a Doctor. I investigated: 'What helps former cult members recover from an abusive cult experience?' I interviewed 29 former cult members and represent their voices in my research.


If you wish to get in touch with me please leave a message on my confidential voicemail on 01433 639032 or email me at info@hopevalleycounselling.com and I will get back to you in early 2017.
