“My job is to assist you in finding the answer that is right for you. Not the answer that would be right for me.”
― John Dolan,
Welcome to my website. I'm Jo, I live and work in Sunbury-on-Thames, and I am an integrative relational counsellor, which simply means that I am trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches so that as we work together I can adapt to your needs.
I am a warm and welcoming person who will never judge you or think that I know more about your experience than you do. I listen openly and offer you gentle questions, or observations to allow you to arrive at your own answers. I will walk beside you as you work through issues, revisit events, or simply tell your story.
Counselling relationships can support you by enabling you to get in touch with feelings or emotions which may have previously been too painful or frightening for you to feel. Exploring these with friends or family is often not an option and the skills of a counsellor will help you to uncover your truths in a safe and non-judgemental way.
I have worked in NHS settings, the voluntary sector and private practice and have helped clients with a variety of concerns.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy.
I am committed to confidentiality and am registered with the Information Commissioners Office.
I hold a current enhanced DBS certificate.
Integrative Relational Counselling BA (Hons)
Certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling
