Who are the Pathways Counsellors?

Pathways counsellors are registered accredited members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. We are subject to this organisation's code of ethics, complaints procedures and requirements for continuing professional development and supervision. Accredited means that individuals have achieved a substantial level of training and experience that has been approved by BACP. We are also qualified and experienced supervisors of other counselling practitioners.

Jill Hinton

I am a founder member of Pathways and have been BACP accredited since 2003.

I hold the following qualifications:

  • BA (First Class Hons) in Counselling Studies (Uni of Plymouth)
  • Certificate in Advanced Counselling Studies (Uni of Plymouth)
  • Diploma in Professional Studies in Counselling (Person-Centred Counselling and Therapy) (Uni of Plymouth)
  • Certificate of Professional Development in Counselling Supervision (Uni of Plymouth)
  • Certificate in Education (Uni of Plymouth)

Whilst practising complementary therapies many years ago, I began to see that the healing process was also happening through talking, the telling of the story, and decided to train as a counsellor. This background has given me a holistic approach to my work as companion on the individual's journey towards self-discovery, of coming to a place of self acceptance, and in so doing creating opportunity for personal growth.

For many years I worked as a counsellor in Primary Care, concerned with the emotional well-being of individuals bringing a host of concerns: low self esteem, relationship problems, stress, bereavement, sexual abuse, anxiety and depression to name a few. I also set up and facilitated a weekly depression support group. My interest in group work led to teaching counselling skills and personal development in Higher Education and to facilitating and supporting groups within the NHS.

My private practice - at the Redruth Well-Being Centre within easy reach of the A30, train station and buses - includes working with individuals referred by Employment Assisted Programmes (EAPS), students on counselling courses, and those who find their own way to me, in search of support through difficult or troubled times.

I also work as a counselling supervisor.

Rebecca Durrant

  • M.A. Psychotherapy and Healing (Middlesex Uni & SOPH)
  • B.A.Hons Phil/Soc (Southampton Uni)
  • P.G.Dip. Analytical Psychology and Healing (Middlesex Uni & SOPH)
  • Diploma in Professional Studies in Counselling (Person-Centred Counselling and Therapy) (Uni of Plymouth)
  • Certificate in Counselling (Exeter Uni)
  • Certificate in working with survivors of rape and sexual abuse (Cornwall Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre)
  • PG Cert Counselling Supervision (Uni of Plymouth)

Over the years I have worked with clients from many differing backgrounds and ages, gaining experience in helping with a wide range of human issues and concerns, all of which reflect life's complexity. Among these are depression, anxiety, bereavement, illness, trauma, relationship difficulties, sexual abuse, self-esteem issues, the mid-life passage, life choices and ageing, spiritual and religious concerns and the search for meaning.

There are often times in life when we may feel the need to share and work through our troubles safely with someone we can trust.

I value each person as a unique individual, trying, like all of us, to live a fulfilling and authentic life as free as possible from suffering. My fundamental role is to offer confidentiality and non-judgemental respect; to accompany and support clients for a time on their life journey, while helping them to find their way through their difficulties and to access their own inner wisdom. For those who are troubled with stress and anxiety in its many forms, I offer specific help and healing. I have a special interest and qualifications in Jungian psychology, dreamwork, spirituality and healing.

As a B.A.C.P. accredited counsellor and psychotherapist, I am committed to continuing my professional development, and attend regular training and workshops on therapy related subjects. I am a founder member of Pathways. My private practice includes working with individuals, long and short-term, working with couples, with students on counselling training courses, and I offer counselling supervision.
