About me and my therapy practice
Hello, and welcome. My name is Jo, I am a Registered Counsellor and member of the BACP based in Westbury-on-Trym and Clevedon. My practice is integrative influenced mainly by Person Centred and Psychodynamic approaches. I strongly believe that the trusting relationship built between Client and Counsellor is at the very heart of therapy, and is therefore, central to my practice. In this relationship I aim to offer you a confidential, safe, non-judgemental, warm space where together we can explore your thoughts and feelings helping you to understand them with a greater sense of meaning.
I have experience of working within the NHS, education settings (age 16+) and mental health charities. I have a specialist interest in Perinatal Mental Health and I am also a practising Registered Midwife.
Acknowledging that you need some help and accessing that help is often a difficult first step to take. Working through issues with a supportive, empathic Counsellor can help you understand your feelings and experiences, identify the changes you would like to make in your life, and give you a sense of hope and direction for the future.
I offer face to face work in a practice designated for wellbeing therapies. I am currently offering telephone sessions due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
My first session
I will always talk to a potential new client by telephone in the first instance. This gives me more of a feel for what their issues may be, and gives the client the opportunity to ask any questions before meeting face to face.
