About me and my therapy practice

Hello, my name is Jo and I am an Integrative Counsellor and Couples Psychotherapist with over 8 Years’ experience supporting people with a range of difficulties from loss and complex bereavement, stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, separation, divorce and life changes.

I have a passion for human beings, young through to the elderly and greatly enjoy having the opportunity to help support a person to make a real difference in their life.

I am a High Intensity Counsellor and Supervisor within the IAPT NHS Talking Therapies Services and an Accredited Member of the BACP. I work with different approaches and modalities, tailoring a therapy to suit you.

I see you as a unique individual and believe you are the expert of your story. You have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming these difficulties, challenges and patterns in your life's script.

My main aim is to create a safe space for you to explore your emotions and witness a self discovery in a non judgemental and transparent environment. I endeavour to move as close to your frame of reference as possible, allowing you to slowly build a self-acceptance and internal trusting.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a experienced Counsellor & Couples Psychotherapist within the NHS Talking Therapies services and also provide clinical supervision to both qualified and trainee counsellors.

I have a strong belief supervision is a collaborative process, it is imperative to offer a secure, helpful space in which you feel a trusting relationship can be developed in order to explore your experiences with your client practice and grow through personal development.

I would hope to encourage autonomy in your thinking and offer gentle guidance and support in areas you wish to explore.  

I can offer regular 1:1 or group Supervision to support practitioners or trainee counsellors in meeting the accreditation standards. 

My aim is to create a relationship that feels supportive, non-judgemental and nurturing so supervisees can feel safe to explore their challenges as well as celebrating their accomplishments. I would encourage a climate of growth, mentoring supervisees to develop their skills, knowledge, experience, self-reflection and confidence in their work.

I believe the purpose of supervision is to:

  • Maintain professional and ethical boundaries
  • To support personal and professional development that enhances practice
  • To reflect in depth about all aspects of practice in order to work ethically, safely and effectively as possible
  • To offer a safe space allowing supervisees to share that ‘felt experience’ and discuss any concerns 
  • To discuss accomplishments and celebrate successes whilst learning from conflicts and any blocks to empathy
  • To grow skills, knowledge and confidence 


Practice description

I base my theoretical practice with a person-centred approach on an integration of Shohet and Hawkins seven-eyed process model which is a systemic approach that considers multiple lenses and Inskipp and Proctors functional model. 

I provide a flexible approach to supervision that addresses the diverse needs of your clients and would be happy to discuss this with you further.
