Jo Evans Psychodynamic Counsellor and Family Therapist
I have been a qualified therapist for a number of years, offering individual therapy to adults and children, exploring what gets in the way of a rewarding life; I also trained in Systemic Psychotherapy and I provide Family Therapy to family groups. Alongside my private practice, I am a Family Therapist in the NHS.
As an experienced family therapist I know that family life can be challenging enough, but an event like a house move or a death, or a situation involving rows or bullying can tip things over the edge. My aim is to provide a useful thinking space to assess what is going wrong and decide the steps to get back on track. I can work one to one with the most affected family member, or offer a space for your family to think together about what is not working for you. Sometimes a combination of the two is the most supportive way forwards.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor. My Diploma is from the WPF training body and have been providing one to one counselling for many years.
I am also a Systemic Practitioner. I trained at the Tavistock Clinic in London. I have extensive experience working with parents and families, and I have a special interest in child development and parenting.
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.
