Jo Lloyd, Couns Dip MBACP
There are times in our lives when we can feel vulnerable, when we can feel overwhelmed and when we can feel burdened by life's experiences both past and present. At such times it can help to talk through your problems. I am a BACP registered, fully qualified counsellor working in the heart of Salisbury offering a rounded and individually tailored style of therapy providing you with a space in which to share your story.
For counselling to be effective it needs to be realistic, yet compassionate, empathic and non judgmental. I undertake to offer you nurturing and respectful support and, whilst it is a journey we take together, I believe in empowering you so that you can achieve the changes you desire or find the peace of mind you crave from a place of inner strength. This provides you with tools and coping strategies that will help in the future.
Additionally, I have specialised training (graduating from the US based Institute for the Psychology of Eating) to provide coaching around food related issues such as yo-yo dieting, over-eating, under-eating, binge eating and other areas where our relationship with food can prove problematic.
Generally, the first session is a two way assessment. It gives you the opportunity to see whether you feel comfortable with me and to begin to explore some of the issues which have brought you to counselling. Following this initial meeting we decide how to proceed together.
I offer short term, long term or one-off counselling. I am happy to provide telephone or FaceTime sessions after an initial face to face consultation.
