Jo Burton Dip Couns, MBACP
I'm Jo Burton an experienced Counsellor who offers short or long-term Counselling for individuals with a wide range of issues. I practice in Newmarket and Stapleford Cambridge.
My passion for Counselling came after I experienced Counselling for myself. It was such a life changing event for me. The natural 'next step' was to become a qualified Counsellor myself so I could pass on this positive experience to help others.
I use an integrated intuitive approach tailored for the needs of the Client.
Integrated Counselling is when the Counsellor has been trained in all the 'main stream' Counselling approaches:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (known as CBT)
What is Counselling?
What do you need or want to talk about? - anything you want!
People seek Counselling for many reasons. I think it is useful any time, and not just at breaking point. We all know when things just don't feel quite right, when we're out of balance or if we're at the point of giving up completely.
Asking for help at these times is an investment in ourselves and a sign of strength.
Counselling can help by talking and working through any difficulties or challenges, exploring and understanding our many different thoughts and feelings, and finding a positive way forward.
I believe my role is to create a safe, confidential non-judgemental space where Clients can be heard, acknowledged and valued for the unique individual they are. When we experience these conditions growth, healing, recovery and reaching our true potential can happen.
We all deserve to feel happy, fulfilled and at peace with who we are. Life can and should be truly amazing, Counselling helps.

I use the first session as an assessment, a time to see if I can help or if you want to work with me.

There is no obligation to continue if it doesn't feel right for you.
