Online therapy for couples and singles is also available.
Philosophy and Style of Working:
Jo uses the ‘psychodynamic’ method of counselling clients, which explores presenting issues and making links with unconscious connections and past experiences. We develop many strategies (often unconscious) to help us to manage the complexities of our relationships with others. Difficulties can arise in areas such as; sex, money, parenting, anger, violent behavior, boredom, intimacy, gender roles, sexual identity and many more.
Working with clients who are married, single, co-habiting or separated, heterosexual, gay, lesbian and from differing ethnic backgrounds, she provides a safe and confidential space within they can be heard. Offering an environment where thought, reflection and expression are encouraged so that a deeper understanding and awareness can be reached.
An initial assessment session lasting 1 hour, enables us to open up a dialogue in which we can explore your needs and assess whether regular, ongoing therapy sessions are likely to be appropriate and beneficial to you.
