About me and my therapy practice

Hi, my name is Jo, I am currently available for remote sessions via Zoom or phone. I offer a down-to-earth, confidential approach in order to provide you with a space to explore any issue you wish to bring. An initial session is offered at a reduced rate (£25) to get to know each other and for you to ask questions before committing further. I work from a person-centered perspective which means I work with the person and not the ‘problem’; that is, helping you to explore and understanding yourself better rather than ‘treating a problem’. Coming for counselling can be a daunting thing to do, but once you are there it can be a place to offload; a chance to get a different perspective; time to find that strength you might have lost and a place to make choices and decisions with support. My belief is that when life is overwhelming, therapy can be invaluable and life-changing. I work with teenagers, students and young adults as well as adults of all ages and I am happy to undertake long-term as well as short-term, goal-oriented work. Please see my website for more information!
