About me and my therapy practice
My name is Jo Leather (she/her) and I am a BACP Registered Psychotherapist/Counsellor practising online and in person, based in Prestwich, North Manchester. I am qualified to Level 7 standard, having trained at Salford University and gaining a MSc with Distinction.
I am a Person-Centred Therapist, which means that I work alongside you at your own pace, offering a warm, accepting and non-judgemental space for you to process your feelings, thoughts and experiences.
Maybe you are feeling under huge pressure at work or struggling in a relationship or finding it hard with your family? Or perhaps you have feelings of sadness, feelings that you're just "not good enough," feelings that you're anxious all the time and you don't know why? We can work together in our sessions on naming, claiming and ultimately, reframing these feelings.
Skilled at working with a diverse range of clients, I'm confident and respectful working with people of all genders. I work frequently with clients living with low mood, social anxiety, panic attacks and generalised anxiety. I am Level 3 trauma trained and take a trauma-informed approach with all my work.
While I am fundamentally humanistic in modality, I can also offer a range of approaches including CBT techniques and Creative Expressive Techniques, depending on the needs and goals of the client. We can tailor the approach to suit you.
I also have extensive experience working with emerging adults and welcome enquiries from younger clients.
My first session
I know how hard it can be to start therapy. Perhaps you don't know what to expect and it's overwhelming? Just drop me an email to set up an initial session and in that session we can discuss what you would like to get from counselling and we can talk about any concerns you may have about getting started. Don't worry about feeling awkward - I make sure that clients feel at ease and empowered during sessions. You're in charge, not me!
Enquiries from parents and guardians regarding therapy for young people are welcomed, just drop me an email to discuss.
Please do let me know about any reasonable adjustments that I can make for your sessions eg closed captions on Zoom.
