Jo Molyneux MBACP, FdSc
It can be hard living with a difficulty that you have been struggling with for some time or perhaps a more recent issue is troubling you. You may be feeling overwhelmed, trying to cope with anxiety or depression, or you may need to talk about your feelings following a significant life event such as a bereavement, relationship breakdown or other loss. Talking with family and friends can be a real help but sometimes it is useful to have the space to talk to a trained counsellor who is not immediately connected to your situation.
My aim is to provide a calm, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviour allowing you to feel heard and understood. I will support you in the process of self-awareness, leading to the ability to make choices that can provide the opportunity for change.
As everyone is unique with their own life experiences and difficulties, the counselling process will be different for each client. I am able to draw from a number of counselling theories and techniques to support you, enabling our work to be tailored to your specific needs.
I offer short or long term work, on a one-to-one basis, with adults and young people from sixteen years of age. Depending on your needs, therapy may just be a few sessions or you may decide that working on an open ended basis feels better for you.
My private practices are located in Pound Hill, Crawley and in Redhill (stairs access). There is parking close by. Please specify if you are interested in seeing me in Crawley or Redhill.
What to expect in our first session
It is very important for you to find a counsellor who you feel happy to work with. As such, in our first introductory meeting we will establish what your needs are and whether working together feels right for you. Initially, counselling may seem daunting so this session will give you the opportunity to find out what it will mean for you.
If you decide to continue with counselling, each therapy session will be fifty minutes, usually at the same time each week.
