About me and my therapy practice

Hello! I'm Jo, an integrative counsellor based near Cambridge. I offer face to face sessions as well as online and by phone. I aim to provide a safe space for you to talk about the things that are difficult and may be holding you back. I believe that the relationship is key in counselling so I will listen without giving advice or judgement to allow you to explore your thoughts and feelings and hopefully to find your way forward. I offer both short-term and long-term counselling according to your needs which we can discuss together. I’m very happy to have an informal chat to get to know each other and see if you think I’m a good ‘fit’ with you.

Practice description

I'm a qualified counsellor with a Diploma in Counselling Practice and a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). My training was mainly focused on the psychodynamic approach looking at how our past experiences and relationships influence how we think, feel and behave.

I’ve undertaken specialist training to work in a trauma-informed way, to help people to build strength and heal from past traumas and to build self-care and emotional regulation. I’ve also done a post-graduate training in relational counselling to enhance my work with couples and have experience working with Relate.

I also have experience working with a number of local charities including Centre 33, Lifeline, Mentis Tree CIC, MIND, and CHOICES. I’ve worked with a wide variety of people including those from the armed forces, those with work and relationship issues with parents and carers and with women experiencing peri-natal mental health challenges. I’ve volunteered with a number of local mental health charities since 2018 and have worked with many different presenting issues including anxiety, depression and bereavement. I also have a particular interest and experience in working with people living with the challenges of trauma.

I undertake regular continuing professional development to enhance my work. 

My first session

Coming for counselling can feel like a big step. Please feel free to call for a chat with no obligations. I offer an initial 15 minute consultation (free of charge) by phone or online so we can discuss your needs and see whether you would like to go ahead. If you then decide to book a session with me, I will send you some working arrangements and confirmation of your appointment.
