Jo Tovey (Dip Couns. MBACP)
Hi, I'm Jo, a qualified counsellor working from warm and comfortable counselling rooms in North Bristol.
I would like to offer you a warm, kind and empathic space in a safe environment where together we can explore your individual experiences, feelings and concerns at your own pace. Counselling can allow you to be heard, to talk freely and to be yourself. Being listened to in a non-judgmental way can be the therapeutic journey to see yourself differently. I work with kindness, creativity, with compassion and humour to help you gain greater insight and understanding of your inner thoughts and feelings. This may empower you to make changes or it may give you the tools you need to develop solutions to any issues you have struggled with.
I care passionately about helping you to become who you want to be or to return to who you used to be.

Photos & videos
I can offer short or long term counselling to individuals of 16 years and older in a supportive and confidential setting.
I appreciate how hard it can be to find the right counsellor, and this is why I offer a 30 minute introductory meeting free of charge and with no obligation.
If following this meeting you feel that you would like us to work together then we can arrange a regular day and time to meet each week.
Sessions last for 1 Hour and cost £40.00. I do offer concessions for students and senior citizens.
