Ruth Jillings Ph.D - Clinical Supervisor
Jean is licensed (USA) as a professional counsellor, clinical social worker and certified as a Nonviolent Communication trainer, with additional experience in trauma work and psychosynthesis. In 1994 she took her first mindfulness meditation course and is happy to support others in discovering its benefits. She enjoys the power of groups to help people change patterns of anxiety, depression, and anger.
I am a qualified Counsellor and I hold a BHSc in Psychology (First Class Hons), and a Post Grad Dip in Narrative Therapy. My key areas of therapeutic interest lie with those experiencing anxiety, stress, depression, or loss, and I have a particular interest in the helpfulness of group work for these concerns. The modalities I use for therapy are varied, and include CBT, narrative therapy, person-centred therapy, mindfulness, and DBT. I believe very much that it is also the relationship that heals, and offer an authentic, warm, and empathetic flavour to my work – I myself have journeyed through some real life challenges and this has added a greater depth to my work as a counsellor. I also have a private practice here at Raeburn House and welcome your inquiry.
Karen is a NZ registered Clinical Psychologist with additional background in Positive Psychology, Depth Therapy, Careers Counselling and Education.
