Jo Langdon, Psychotherapist & Counsellor, Registered UKCP & BACP member
I am an integrative psychotherapist offering counselling, psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I have worked as a counsellor and psychological therapist for various charitable organisations and the NHS. Since 2015 I have been working as a private therapist seeing clients on a face to face basis. Recently I have moved my private practice online. I am also studying a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology and hope to qualify in 2021.
I take an integrative approach in my practice considering the needs of each of my clients, as unique human beings in the process of growing and developing. I hold that as humans we are shaped by our relationships (both past and present) and that it is through the therapeutic relationship that healing and change can occur.
In practice I thus seek to create and maintain a therapeutic relationship with each of my clients through non-judgemental inquiry, sensitive attunement, and authentic involvement.
Key influences on my approach and clinical practice include Kohut (self psychology), Bowlby (attachment theory), Kahn (psychodynamic), and Rogers (person-centred). I am also trained in CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) interventions, which I occasionally draw upon, if desired by the client.
I am a registered and accredited member of both the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and work in compliance with their ethical guidelines.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership

Due to society's progressive use of technology, online therapy, i-therapy or e-therapy is an increasingly popular form of therapy. It can be as effective as face-to-face therapy.
There are many reasons why you might choose online therapy.
- You may live in a remote area and find it hard to access face-to-face counselling or psychotherapy.
- You may live in a location where the cost of private therapy is unaffordable, and the waiting list for therapy on the NHS is long.
- You may have a physical disability or mobility issues which makes travelling difficult.
- You may feel especially nervous about meeting someone face-to-face and would prefer the sense of anonymity online therapy can provide.
- Or you may be struggling to leave your house and find attending appointments difficult.
