Welcome to Hope Valley Counselling

- Helping you complete the jigsaw.


We 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, is a National Park and an area of outstanding natural beauty (see photos).

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 a number of former cult members and will be representing their voices in my research.


In order to get my thesis completed by September 2015 I have had to reduce my availability for admin, emails and client work and have reduced my practice to a Friday fortnightly for the next few months. 


Because of this work you may not get a reply from me immediately - and there could be a delay until I am able to offer counselling services.


Please don't let this put you off contacting me...but I wanted you to be aware of the situation. Thank you for your patience and I hope my research will contribute to the understanding of what helps former members recover and help many people.
