Jo Temple Holistic Integrative Counsellor MBACP
I am a holistic integrative counsellor with the belief that we are mind, body and spirit. I feel it is important to embrace all these elements in the counselling room.
I believe that honesty, a non-judgemental attitude and showing empathy will help empower you to feel safe and accepted, so that you can learn to trust in your own wisdom to bring about changes in your life.
I integrate a collection of different counselling methods to help facilitate these changes which is dependent on the issues that you bring. These tools are primarily driven by attachment theory, transactional analysis, gestalt and creative therapy.
I am also a qualified fitness and well-being instructor using mindfulness meditation in my work.
I am a registered member of the BACP and have recently completed the accreditation process and am awaiting confirmation.
I have gained a wide range of experience working for MIND since 2012.
You are welcome to call me for an informal chat and to ask any questions before committing.
I work from a cabin in the garden (see photo) in a quiet road.
