Jo Mason CBT Therapist/EMDR. Fully BABCP accredited
I think it goes without saying that we all have good days and bad days, we all have good times in our life and bad times in our life, if you are visiting this page then I am guessing things aren’t so good, I'm here to help you start the upwards climb.
The therapy I offer is goal focused, looking for solutions to areas of difficulty. I work collaboratively with clients to help them understand what brought them to where they are now, we then think about what needs to change. We all know the old adage- ‘If you do what you have always done you will get what you always got’. Change is often difficult so I will support you to explore what needs to change and instigate those changes in a gradual unthreatening way. This works for a myriad of difficulties, in my years of working therapeutically with people I have seen lives transformed by small and large changes made through therapy. We can work on looking after yourself physically and mentally helping you become at ease with life and who you are.
