Jo Richardson MBACP, Dip Coun,Post Grad Dip Coun, Children & Young People
Widnes Holistic Centre
118 Peelhouse Lane
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor working with adults,children and adolescents. I use a variety of techniques to help people with their issues.
I qualified as a integrative counselor in 2007, then Post Graduate Dip in children and adolescent in 2010. My counselling sessions aim to offer a variety of counselling methods to suit individual needs.
I have many years experience working with adults, children and adolescents in the statutory, voluntary and private sector. I work within the Widnes area, this is from a holistic center, by appointment only. I have worked in secondary,primary and infants school's in Halton and also the Liverpool area counselling children and adolescents.
The first step is coming to counselling and sometimes the hardest. On a professional level we join in a relationship on a new journey, to work through issues that effect you. This enables you to be empowered and progress day to day.
I offer a non judgmental approach whilst remaining empathetic.
