Jo de Louvois, Buckinghamshire Counselling, Trauma Counsellor
Sometimes life can present difficult challenges. When that happens it's easy to feel confused, lonely, stuck and perhaps even judged. I can help you by providing a space for realisation, processing trauma and finding greater inner peace and freedom to live the life you wish for. I believe the most important relationship we have is with ourselves. Having self-compassion and being at peace with oneself self can be difficult to practice. I want to bring you hope and support you in becoming your own best friend.
I have had the privilege of working with some amazingly courageous clients; supporting victims of sexual abuse and trauma which can come in many guises; young people through the pressures of growing up; depression, anxiety, self-harm, eating disorders and break down in family relationships.
I have a warm, caring approach and will work with you to find a way forward that is best for you in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment. Everyone is unique and therapy is different for every person, I will work with you to combine the most effective therapy for your individual needs.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
