About me

My name is Jo Stephens and I am a professionally trained Counsellor/Psychotherapist offering Counselling and Psychotherapy in Southend-On-Sea. I am based in Chalkwell, Essex at Southbourne Physiotherapy, which is situated 3 minutes walk from Chalkwell station and 45 minutes from London Fenchurch Street Station.

In the time that I have been working therapeutically with adults and adolescents, I have gained invaluable experience and understanding of an individual's issues, needs and their perception of their own World experience, in other words how they 'see the world'. Some of the issues I have worked with are depression, anxiety, relationship issues, anger issues, abuse, dissociation, self-esteem, bullying, building confidence, assertiveness skills, sharing a happy experience with an impartial individual. I find that there is a stigma attached to therapy, which doesn't need to be there.

The issues brought to my therapy practice are not always associated with despair and sometimes the individual needs a safe and non-judgemental space to explore their own identity, decisions or even future plans. It is my role to enable and facilitate change in an individual's life, which in turn provides empowerment to that individual.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work within the ethical framework of this organisation. I have an up-to-date DBS check.
