Jo Adamson (Reg. MBACP & Reg. MACC)
I am a professional and compassionate counsellor and work together with clients (adults and children 11+) from all backgrounds and circumstances according to their individual needs and desires. I offer a warm and non-judgemental space to explore troubling issues, whether past, present, potential, individual, relational or spiritual.
I believe that every human contains the potential to be and do more than just merely exist or survive life’s journey. With the right help and support, difficulties and concerns can be worked through to enable you to thrive, whatever the circumstances.
I am an integrative counsellor, which means that I will individually tailor knowledge and tools from different types of counselling (including Person-Centred, Cognitive Behavioural, Psychodynamic, Solution-Focused, and Gestalt approaches, along with mindfulness techniques, and creative interventions) according to what I believe will best help you. I value your ongoing feedback in order to work with you most effectively.
I work from a town centre accessible location, with toilets and a small waiting area, and which provides a tea room Mon - Fri 9:30 - 12.30 (excluding Weds). Please ask if you require a home visit.
