Jean Thirkettle - Accounts Manager

My job at The House is to make sure that the accounting and finance side of things is handled with just as much care and attention as the rest of the journey. I also work as a counsellor, and I love the parallels I see between the counselling work I do with my clients and The House’s values. 

“We walk the hill with you” - I see this is as the foundation of my own therapy work, supporting and creating our working alliance.  

“We get to the heart of the matter” - Only when I can stand in my client’s shoes and see the world through their eyes can I truly appreciate their position.

“We seek meaning and unlock imagination” - The House will work with you to look at your values and help you to bring a new purpose to your business.  In the same way, I try to reflect back and offer insights to my clients.  Examining different perspectives will often shift their awareness and open a different way of looking at things. 

“We build with the end in mind” - The most successful outcome in the work is a good ending after all goals have been agreed and achieved.  A good ending in my therapy work feels like releasing a little bird into the world to soar high in the clouds – the same feeling The House seeks to create in our clients.
