About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I’m Jo. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.

I am a qualified Humanistic Counsellor, working predominantly from a Person-Centred approach, but will always aim to identify the working style that best suits your unique needs.

As a Humanistic Counsellor, I believe the key to getting the best results from therapy is to develop a genuine, trusting, and empathic relationship with my clients. I do not see myself as the expert with all the answers. I believe you are the expert on yourself as no one else knows what it is like to be you. I trust in you and your ability to make changes in your life, so see my role as more of a companion to walk alongside you on your journey as you explore your thoughts and feelings.

Practice description

I can provide a safe and relaxing environment for you to talk about whatever is on your mind which will be free from judgement or opinions. I can offer face to face, online or telephone sessions.

People reach out for support for many reasons. Regardless of what your reason may be, I would like to invite you to get in touch for a free telephone consultation to discuss the potential of us working together.

My first session

I offer an initial free 30 minute telephone consultation to answer any questions you may have as well as finding out a bit more about you and your reasons for seeking counselling. This time is also to find out whether I am the right person to help, or whether you might need referring on to another service or colleague who might be more skilled in a particular area.
