About me

My name is Jo and I am a psychotherapist working in the NHS working with people experiencing mental health issues, marginalisation, complexity of childhood experience, self harm, personality and addiction difficulties.

I have many years experience of working with people who identify as gender and/or sexually diverse, or as part of one of more of the LGBTQ communites.

I strongly believe that psychotherapy can help anyone to make changes, in order to create the life they wish for and to feel better about themselves.

Over the past 28 years I have worked with people experiencing acute and chronic depression, psychosis, personality disorder and bipolar disorder and with people who hear voices. An integral part of my practice is offering a containing and supportive environment in which to explore and make links between emotional distress and childhood experience.

I work within the peaceful environment of Turvey Monastery which is accepting of all and I am part of The Turvey Groupwork Clinical Practice. I am non religious but also accepting of all spirituality.

Please see our website linked at the top of my profile.

You will find travel details on the website.

I believe in offering a safe, non judgemental and supportive space to explore whatever experience you wish and working collaboratively to find a way forward.
