About me and my therapy practice

As an integrative therapist, I explore your thoughts, feelings, emotions and bodily experiences. This holistic approach enables us to gain a rounded view of what might be going on for you. My work is client led, meaning that I work with whatever you choose to bring up. My focus in the initial stages is to build our therapeutic alliance to make you feel comfortable and secure.

I work in Spondon, which has great transport links with the A52, A50 and M1 close by. My practise is on bus routes between Derby and Nottingham and I have free off road parking.

I offer weekly sessions which are 60 minutes long, and the fee is £45, including the initial assessment. Please note I am unable to offer fortnightly or less frequent sessions due to the therapeutic nature of my work. 


"I felt comfortable as soon as Jo opened the door and I saw her smile. I only wanted a limited number of sessions and knew what I wanted to work on. Jo was able to do this and brought new insight into how my childhood impacted how I feel as an adult"

"Very lovely environment, calm and relaxing. Jo never made me feel rushed or insignificant. I believe I've thoroughly benefited from counselling - Thank you very much!"

"Jo made me feel at ease and I quickly felt able to share my anxieties, personal and work related stress with her. With her support I've been able to work through some complex issues and start to build a new life. I feel optimistic about the future now and have learned strategies to support myself when challenges arise. I cannot recommend Jo highly enough, she helped me find myself again and although I hope to not need her again, I will miss talking with her very much. Thank you"
