Jo Goodman - Psychotherapist/Group Analytic Psychotherapist
Turvey Centre For Psychotherapy
My name is Jo and I am a psychotherapist with 28 years experience of working in the NHS with people experiencing mental health issues, domestic violence, marginalisation, complexity of childhood experience, sexual identity issues, self harm, personality and addiction difficulties.
I strongly believe that psychotherapy can help anyone to make changes, in order to create the life they wish for and to feel better about themselves.
Over the past 28 years I have worked with people experiencing acute and chronic depression, anxiety, psychosis, personality disorder and bipolar disorder and with people who hear voices.
An integral part of my practice is offering a containing and supportive environment in which to explore and make links between emotional distress and childhood experience.
I work within the peaceful environment of Turvey Monastery which is accepting of all and I am part of The Turvey Groupwork Clinical Practice. I am non religious and accepting of all spirituality.
Please see our website linked at the top of my profile.
You will find travel details on the website.
I believe in offering a safe, non judgemental and supportive space to explore whatever experience you wish and working collaboratively to find a way forward.

Working with people who wish to identify as non binary and those who wish to transition from one gender to another or however they wish to identify.
I have extensive experience with working with people who identify as LGBTQ both individually and in supportive groups, I am passionate about offering safe and inclusive therapuetic spaces for people to explore themselves in a nonjudgmental environment.
I work in a relational way and feel the therapuetic relationship is integral to the work we can do together, whilst thinking about the context in which you live and the support you may have outside the therapy room.
