Ex-cult member and Psychotherapist Gillie Jenkinson dedicates her professional work and writing with those recovering from cults. Through her practice in the United Kingdom, “Hope Valley Counseling Limited” (www.hopevalleycounselling.com), she offers Post Cult Counselling to those who have left a cult – both with those raised in cults and those who had been recruited.
Ms. Jenkinson is a popular speaker at conferences for the International Cultic Studies Association, and a contributing editor to the journal, Cultic Studies Review. She worked closely with the reputable residential programs for cult recovery at Wellspring Retreat and Resource Center in Albany, Ohio USA.
Ms. Jenkinson is hopeful of bringing the next level of her dream to life – a residential retreat center in the UK to help those recovering from cults. She is currently fundraising for this dream and to subsidise therapy for ex-cult members through a newly launched charity EnCourage Survivors of Cults and Abuse.
