‘I’m sorry to say so but, sadly, it’s true that Bang-ups and Hang-ups can happen to you. And then you’re in a slump, you’re not in for much fun. Un-slumping yourself is not easily done…..’ Dr Seuss, ‘Oh the Places You’ll Go
Hello, I am Jo Robb. You are not on your own. We can take this journey together. I am a qualified counsellor, a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP); and I work in accordance with their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
My counselling approach comes from both my personal and professional values. I offer my clients empathic understanding, offering unconditional positive regard from a genuine position, which means no matter what you say, or who you are, I will accept and care about you. I will listen to you in a caring, confidential, safe, and trusting environment.
Together, we will build a trusting therapeutic relationship, which will take us on an explorative journey of what has brought you to counselling and to a better understanding of your-self and where you fit into your world. Hopefully, this will lead to you experiencing greater satisfaction and happiness in your life and relationships.
The counselling you will experience with me is through a humanistic approach. This approach encompasses a range of therapeutic models, all coming from the attitude that we, as humans, are naturally creative and unique; that we have inherent worth; deserve respect; have an instinctive tendency to grow, change and achieve our full potential; and that our life experiences have the potential to be a resource to realising that potential. My humanistic approach also recognises that, sometimes, life circumstances may get in the way of these human qualities. I truly believe that my clients are the experts on themselves and that therapy is a co-created relationship.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about the process of counselling and my approach.
My private practice is either from my therapy room at home in Warblington, Hampshire. There are good road, bus and rail transport links and free parking. Or counselling rooms in central Chichester.
Just wanted to drop you an email to say thankyou for our sessions earlier in the year, although it was a turbulent period for me, my few sessions with you massively helped and gave me some integral coping mechanisms.
You’ll be pleased to know that my relationship with my son is fantastic, it feels we have made a huge improvement on what once seemed so broken between us and in turn has greatly improved his mental health and outlook on life. Throughout this I have experienced, and am still working on self healing and personal growth which at times is tough but ultimately rewarding.
I wanted to share this with you and let you know that your input and expertise played a significant part in my journey for which I am grateful.' (September 2019)

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.
