Counsellor and Psychotherapist, and Trainer
Jill Morgan is an accredited Humanistic Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist, and Trainer. Prior to becoming a clinician, Jill academically specialised in post-colonial studies; developing a particular interest in hybridity, migration and diaspora. Themes of insider-outsider, working with(in) the interstice and supporting those that skirt the margins of society, are common elements to her work.
Currently, Jill works as a group therapist for a women’s refugee centre, where she draws upon traditional coffee and tea ceremonies and healing rituals, as a resource for spiritual and psychological healing. In private practice, supporting clients affected by anxiety to develop second-order change: where they begin to relate to their anxiety differently – reflexive, and not immersed in the symptoms – is an area of work that Jill finds rewarding.
Formerly Tutor and Honorary Lecturer for the Anna Freud Centre and UCL on the MSc in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Children and Young People’s IAPT, Jill routinely integrates meditation and CBT, Psychodynamic, Systemic and Humanistic therapies in clinical practice.
Prior to becoming a clinician, Jill worked extensively in a wide-range of statutory and third-sector organisations to coordinate and deliver youth and community support; and execute multi-agency child protection for vulnerable and hard-to-reach children and young people.
