Jean Miller has over 20 years experience as a psychotherapist in private practice working with couples and individuals. She also trains therapists on a number of courses, with particular focus on couples work. Her work is founded in humanistic and integrative approaches to the field.
"In recognition of the way the demands of the profession have evolved and the increase in workload we have formally added to the directorate of LDPRT. We are delighted that Jean Miller has accepted our offer to move to Co-Director of the organisation from her former position of Associate Director."
- Judi Keshet-Orr & Bernd Leygraf, July 2020
Jean has a substantial practice as a supervisor of counsellors and psychotherapists, as well as psychosexual and relationship therapists. She is the nominated psychosexual and relationship supervisor for Ealing Abbey Counselling Service.
Jean has been the Course Director of the London Foundation Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy since it began in 2014. Many students from the Foundation have subsequently trained on the LDPRT.
Having studied French and Italian, Jean originally worked for The British Council and the Youth Exchange Centre based there, for several years, in roles which encouraged cultural exchanges between young people in The UK and other countries. She still believes that an interest in literature and languages is a good basis for beginning psychotherapy training!
She worked as a Childline counsellor. She then trained at Regent's College and The Whittington Hospital on an early version of the LDPRT and first gained BASRT (now COSRT) accreditation and UKCP registration in 2001. She is a Senior Accredited Member of COSRT and also BACP registered.
She has a Diploma, from Westminster Pastoral Foundation, in working with adolescents, from a psychodynamic perspective, and subsequently includes young adults and older teenagers in her private practice client basebase and integrates a psychodynamic understanding into her integrative approach.
In addition to her counselling and training, she has also trained as a family mediator, and now also works in conflict resolution specialising in family rifts.
