Jo Yardley CTA (P) MBACP
I am an experienced counsellor, psychotherapist and transactional analyst offering therapy for individuals, couples and groups with a half hour initial meeting free of charge. I also work with counselling and psychotherapy students.
I offer a comfortable quiet setting in the Hampshire village of Overton, less than half an hour by car from Basingstoke, Winchester, Andover and Newbury and there is free parking outside.
The wide range of different therapies available to new clients can be confusing, I believe what is most important is whether we could work together in a way that is effective and helpful to you.
You may initially be unsure of what you want and there is no magic formula, together we can explore your needs and how to meet them. By offering a balance of support and challenge, my aim is to help you establish how you would like to be and then for us to work together to empower you to change whatever you decide in order to make that happen.
