Jo Vickers BA (Hons) Counselling & Psychotherapy NCS Accredited
My aim is to co-create an environment that offers you a place to bring and share your unique experiences and begin to explore and understand how they have impacted you. I believe everyone can benefit from sharing their stories; often being truly heard for the first time. Nonetheless, this can feel odd initially, sat sharing information with a stranger.
My creative approach to therapy responds to your individual needs to best support you whilst undertaking this. My experience of working with survivors of trauma has been a live demonstration of the impact of previous and current experiences on our health.
Emotions can become 'stuck' and we can get trapped in a narrative that informs us we 'can't'. I will encourage you to 'notice' and be 'curious' about what's helpful & what's not and enquire what informs you of this. I will support you with compassion to become more self-aware, enabling you to better support yourself during day to day life.
I believe that change occurs as a result of the relationship that is co-created between client and therapist, therefore I encourage you to make a few enquiries before committing to work with anyone. I offer a free telephone consultation to enable you to communicate what you feel your needs are and ascertain if you feel we'd be a 'good fit'.
