About Silkworth Lodge:

Meet the Team

Wendy Allenet-Simpson

Family Programme Manager

Wendy brings a unique combination of skills and experience to Silkworth having had a rich and varied business career in the Jersey finance industry, has lived in several countries and successfully run her own businesses. Having nearly 20 years of 12 Step experience and in tandem with her business career, Wendy has studied counseling psychotherapy. Following her own impassioned pursuit of understanding the role of trauma in recovery, she took a sabbatical of 20 months working in a counseling centre in Berkeley, California experiencing the full breadth of in-depth counseling psychotherapy as well as alcohol and drug intervention which gave Wendy the invaluable insight that she brings to Silkworth.  

“I understand the unique needs and challenges of clients,” she said. “At Silkworth, our singular focus is on serving the best interests of the client and the client’s family. Both have suffered and both need help and support to recover.  We hope to provide a safe harbor where lives can be reclaimed and lived more fully: vibrantly.”

As the Programme Development Manager, she will facilitate the Family Programme, the Silkworth Wellbeing Programme and assist in the development of the charity groups ancillary services.
