Jo Brown Reg. MBACP
10 Vandyke Road
I am a fully qualified therapeutic counsellor with a diploma in humanistic therapeutic counselling and am a member of the professional register of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, abiding by their code of ethical conduct.
I work with those suffering anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse survivors, relationship difficulties, addictive behaviours, general unhappiness and those seeking self awareness My approach is to help you identify and release the root cause of suffering rather than papering over the cracks.
Counselling is not a question of me telling you what to do or how to be, you know yourself better than anyone else does, and your inner self knows what it needs to do to, even if you are not aware of that right now. I will accompany and support you using my skills and abilities to empower you to access your own source of inner strength and well being.
I provide a safe, confidential space where you will not be judged, where together we can get to the bottom of what's bothering you and help you move forward.
I come from a bodywork background (Shiatsu) and understand that the body is not separate from the mind. When feelings and experiences are buried deeply and forgotten in present awareness they are remembered in the body. Being mindful of our body is a powerful way to access and work with deeply buried feelings and memories, particularly those which are traumatic and/or pre-verbal.
I can integrate this knowledge into my counselling practice, when required, to help you access and work with these feelings safely in a meaningful way.
My fee for counselling is £35 per hour.
Therapeutic counselling works best when meetings are regular, usually weekly, and can be short term (6 - 10 weeks) or longer term depending on your needs. If you have a particular issue that you wish to work on in a focused way then short term counselling would be appropriate. For deep seated, or multiple issues or for developing self awareness, more time would be helpful.
- I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation giving you the opportunity to find out a little bit more about my practice and to to ask any questions you need, to help decide whether I am the right counsellor for you.
Contact by phone or email, I will always respond within 24 hours.
Weekday and early evening appointments available.
