About me

Hi, I'm Jo, welcome to my profile.  I am a qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), working in line with their code of ethics. 

How can I help you?

Are you experiencing change and struggling to adapt? Do you need to talk to someone who you can trust and who is separate from your life? Do you need a safe space to 'take off your mask' and understand the uncomfortable feelings you often try to push aside?

Having feelings isn’t optional but you can choose to take positive steps to improve how you feel through our sessions.

I offer integrative counselling and can work to suit your needs. I am professional, compassionate, genuine and care greatly about helping you.

I work remotely via video call/telephone or face to face. 

There is a list of areas I deal with at the bottom of this page however I commonly work with anxiety, panic, low mood, depression, inner critic, bereavement, loss, family/relationship problems, midlife/menopausal stresses and low self esteem.

Sessions are usually weekly and for 50 minutes however, I am flexible and can work around your needs. Sessions are at your pace and for you to use however you want.

Person-centred counselling is the basis of sessions. Our relationship is key and I will listen to you with warmth and non-judgement. I work hard to understand what it is like to be you, bringing validation, perspective, clarity and enabling a better understanding of self.

CBT training means that I am able to empower you by helping you to understand what you are experiencing in a more informative, educative role. We can work together and focus on areas of change looking at thoughts and/or behaviour to reduce unwanted feelings.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
