Jo-Anne Butt BA (Hons) MBACP
Hello and welcome to my profile. I offer a warm, supportive, confidential environment, where you are able to explore problems in a non-judgemental and unbiased way. Together we can explore what is troubling you and find the tools and new approaches you need to move forward and initiate positive change. We can work together for short term focused work or longer term periods, depending on what your individual requirements are.
I work in a holistic way, having a background in Gestalt and humanistic approaches to therapy. I also incorporate mindfulness and creativity when appropriate and if you feel comfortable working this way. I can also offer more focused short term work, incorporating CBT.
As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I work within the BACP Ethical Framework.
It is important that you find somebody you can develop a trusting relationship with. We will both have the opportunity to ask questions during a telephone conversation prior to your first session. I then offer a 30 minute face to face 'taster' session free of charge. This first session together will help you determine if I am that person and from there we can agree on an initial number of sessions, which can then be reviewed as we work together. This could be as little as one session, six sessions, to longer term open ended work.
I work from a private, peaceful room in Horton Heath, with free parking and easy access to the M27 at junction 7. I am within comfortable travelling distance of Eastleigh, Winchester, Southampton, Botley, Bishops Waltham, Wickham and Fareham.
I work with adults and young people from sixteen years.
