Jillian has been a lecturer and practitioner in Counselling, Mental Health and Psychology since 1974. She established Fernhill Counselling in Singapore in 2003. Jill has many years of experience working with mental health problems but in Singapore the most common needs have been pre and post-natal depression, anxiety and stress, family and couples relationship problems, expatriate issues and relationships education.

Jillian uses a variety of counselling styles and is guided by the client’s particular needs. Logotherapy or Existential therapy has been her special interest for more than 20 years and may be offered in conjunction with other therapies.

She also coordinates the post natal depression services at Fernhill, offering both individual and group support to new mums and providing talks and information to other services and agencies. She provides workshops such as Stress Management to companies and community groups, and child development workshops for parents.
