Jo Moore. MBACP Registered
I am an Integrative Counsellor and I see clients in Letchworth and Welwyn. I work by establishing a good therapeutic relationship with my clients that is built on trust. I encourage my clients to reflect on their behaviour and their emotional responses, helping them to better understand the connection between thoughts, feelings, actions, and behaviour.
I help my clients to challenge negative thought patterns and develop strategies for coping with difficult situations and the feelings these evoke.
Currently I see clients in Letchworth at the Local Counselling Centre (LCC) and in Welywn at Welywn Counselling which is based at the Welywn Chiropractic clinic. As an Integrative Counsellor I draw upon various Counselling traditions and methods, combining them in a way that best suits the individual needs of my clients.
I came originally from a teaching background and worked in Primary Education as a class teacher and Special Needs Co-ordinator for almost 20 years. Whilst working as a special need advisory teacher I became much more interested in how best to support individual learners on a 1:1 basis.
My focus has always been on how to help individuals reach their own personal potential, not just educationally but more broadly in their whole life. This led me to become more interested in supporting others in being the best that they can be in their relationship with themselves and others. I believe that we all strive for personal happiness and wholeness and 1:1 Counselling can provide a unique opportunity for supporting this, particularly when we become stuck or find ourselves dealing with difficult circumstances and emotions.
