A note about availability and exciting PhD project:

I, Gillie Jenkinson, have embarked on a qualitative doctoral research project at The University of Nottingham and am investigating: 'What helps former cult members recover from an abusive cult experience?' I have interviewed 29 former cult members and am representing their voices in my research.


In order to get my thesis completed on time I am having time out to write. Please check this website or my voicemail message to find out when I am available.


I anticipate that I will be back to counselling from 1st September 2016 so please don't let my lack of availability put you off contacting me then. Thank you for your patience and I hope my research will contribute to the understanding of what helps former members recover. [June 2016]
