Welcome to Hope Valley Counselling

- Helping you complete the jigsaw.

Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Gillie Jenkinson and

I provide a number of services, incuding: psychotherapy, counselling, supervision, consultancy and training.


I also provide Post Cult Counselling and 'Time Away in the Peak District' to survivors of 'undue influence' including: former members of abusive groups; high demand groups; cults or sects; one-on-one cults or relationships, including psychopathic partner abuse; 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 these services. 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:

For my doctoral research 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. My thesis is entitled: 'Freeing the Authentic Self: Phases of Recovery and Growth from an Abusive Cult Experience'.
