About me

Hello, I'm Jo Dice.

I offer quality, personalised counselling and psychotherapy.

I have a special interest in working with young adults, aged 18-30, who I feel are frequently marginalised and underrepresented in society. I am a passionate advocate for young people and their rights.

I am also particularly interested in the themes of love and relationships, what that might mean for a client in the context of our modern day society, and how that is changing. I have undergone training from renowned couple's therapist Esther Perel, which has informed my work in this area.

My approach is one of combining knowledge and science with matters of the heart and spirit. I am modern and forward thinking in my work. I offer my clients compassion and respect, whilst demonstrating authenticity and integrity.

My clients often come to me wanting a little bit more from their therapist, a bit more challenge, a bit more than reflecting back to them what they already know. Having completed 4 years of comprehensive training in psychotherapy, I am able to offer this to those clients, whilst still offering the gentle, non-directive approach that other clients benefit from. I don't believe in a "one size fits all" approach, and I tailor the work to meet your needs.

I am also an experienced registered nurse, I've been nursing for over 17 years. I have many years of experience within the field of mental health and healthcare and a breadth of knowledge, which I bring to my work. My medical knowledge can be of particular benefit to those experiencing physical health problems, or for those with complex healthcare needs, for example, when commencing antidepressant medication.

Sometimes life can be a struggle. Through counselling and psychotherapy, I can support you with your emotions and help you to be at peace with yourself and others.

Whatever your needs please get in touch. I'd love to hear from you, you don't need to face this alone.

"Investing in yourself is the best investment you will ever make. It will not only improve your life, it will improve the lives of all those around you." Robin Sharma

Further information

I work on the telephone or via zoom. This gives you flexibility to rearrange sessions, the comfort of your own home to help calm you for the session, more time in your day to take care of yourself and less stress in terms of driving and parking. Many clients feel less under a microscope when working in this way, so it can help those who feel worried about the process of counselling.

It is normal to worry that you won't know what to talk about in the sessions, or that you feel nervous before starting. My clients are often surprised at the way I am able to facilitate them gently into new insights or areas of growth and discovery.

Please get in touch via email or text to arrange your free introductory session.
