Jo Chadwick MBACP(Accr)
Hi, my name is Jo Chadwick and I am a fully qualified Person-Centred counsellor who can offer a safe, professional relationship where you can explore any issue that is troubling you in complete confidence.
It has been shown that the quality of therapist/client relationship is a crucial factor in effective therapy so it is hugely important that you find someone with whom you are comfortable enough to work successfully with.
In my experience in working in the voluntary sector and with young people in a school setting I have encountered a variety of issues ranging from, abuse, addictions, anger, stress, depression, relationships and identity. The most important element for me however is you and understanding your emotional landscape. I do not believe that we are defined by our problems and it is my role to assist you in discovering your own resources and providing a space where your story can be told.
