Jo Evans MBACP (Accred)
Would you like to feel better about life? Are you feeling low, stressed or anxious? Do you find your relationships don’t make you happy? Counselling can help. It offers you the opportunity to think about where you are now and how it could be different. Talking about your thoughts and feelings can give you huge relief and enable you to consider those changes which will bring you a greater sense of happiness and wellbeing.
In counselling, we can explore what usually happens in your relationships, and try to gain some understanding of what drives you. This can help you when you are thinking about making changes in what you do or how you are with other people.
As your counsellor, my role is to help you on your journey of self-discovery, asking useful questions and supporting you when it feels difficult or painful. Being more aware of what is going on inside you will help you make sense of your experiences and will make life feel more meaningful and rewarding.
We can meet for either a set number of sessions (6 to 12) or for as long as required (open ended), each session lasting 50 minutes at the same time each week.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
