Her research interests are in the areas of Emotional Intelligence, secondary impact upon professionals, clergy psychological wellbeing and grief & loss. Jill has been a grief counsellor for over 20 years and has worked within a number of voluntary organisations that offer support to both adults and children through their grief processes.  

Jill is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. She is also a member of both The British Association of Counsellling & Psychotherapy and The European Association for Counselling.

She completed the Communication with Counselling degree (First Class) here at Ulster and went on to complete her PhD with a Department for Employment and Learning (DEL) funded scholarship. Her thesis focused on the secondary traumatisation experience of Irish clergy and its relationship with Emotional Intelligence.
