Hello and welcome, I'm Jo. You may have come here because you're struggling to cope with life's challenges. Perhaps you're feeling overwhelmed, lost or alone and you're finding it hard to deal with the difficult feelings. Many situations can bring us to a point where everything feels too much - for example, emotional and/or physical ill health, work stress, relationship difficulties, break-ups, bereavement, trauma and unresolved childhood issues. I offer psychotherapy and Havening Techniques to help you to explore what you need to resolve your difficulties and gain balance in your life and in your relationships.

Has a recent or past negative experience left you feeling lost or stuck? Maybe you’ve tried to just get on with life but inside you still feel broken, replaying events in your mind and asking yourself why or how this happened. Perhaps you know what happened to you was traumatic or maybe you’ve told yourself it “wasn’t that bad”. Some days you seem to feel all the emotions all at once, and other days you feel nothing at all. Other people simply don’t understand, leaving you feeling alone and like you don’t matter. Most things in your life, your relationships, work or education might be affected and you long to break free from it all.

Have you tried and tried to repair what you feel is broken but still feel stuck and don’t know how to move forward? Maybe you feel that everyone else seems to be coping so there must be something wrong with you? Are you feeling isolated, unable to share your feelings with those closest to you? Sometimes we struggle with sadness, anxiety or self criticism, we can feel like life no longer holds any joy or charm for us. We feel frustrated with ourselves for not being ok - for not just “getting on with it”. We are often so understanding of other people's fallibility but have such high expectations of ourselves that we fall short.

I’m Dr Rachel Evans PhD; a psychologist who specialises in eating disorder recovery. This career choice was inspired by my own struggle with bulimia and orthorexia and experience of recovery. I know how it feels when everything you think and do is ruled by thoughts of food and weight, that often feel out of your control. I also know how wonderful and joyful life is on the other side of your illness. I treat BULIMIA through my holistic recovery programme, called Nourish. It’s an empowering combination of talking therapy (coaching), Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT; hypnotherapy) and holistic support. Working with me is different

People seek counselling for aspects of life which are troubling them. It might be because of depression, anxiety, low mood, a lack of confidence or feeling overwhelmed. Perhaps you are wishing to recover from past traumas or you're feeling stuck. Seeking help is a positive and courageous step. Choosing a counsellor that you can trust and feel comfortable with is important. For this reason I offer a free, no obligation, 30 minute telephone consultation. My practice is based near the centre of Derby. I provide therapy for adults from 18 years upwards.

Have you found it difficult to engage in traditional therapy? Do the expectations attached to room based therapy, where we sit face to face, feel overwhelming?

I love my job, but I am aware that taking the first steps can be very scary and how difficult it can be to talk about painful emotional issues affecting your life to a stranger. I am here for you though, Im here to offer you this support, and to respond to you sensitively, honestly and without judgement. I must admit my favourite part of being a counsellor is watching you, my clients, grow and blossom into the amazing beings you are supposed to be, letting go of the things that hold you back, reaching your full potential and creating your best possible life! It is a huge honour and privilege to be part of that process!

Sometimes life events can overwhelm us, leaving us floundering and wondering which way to turn. I won't ask "What's wrong with you?" I will ask, "What's happened to you?" I will listen attentively and without judging you, while you tell your story. By working collaboratively, we can explore the thoughts and feelings you need to share. I am a person centred therapeutic counsellor. For me this means I trust that only you know what’s best for you at this time and in these circumstances. Working together we will move at your pace on a unique journey. I will offer you a space where I hope you feel you can be heard.

Hello and welcome. People access therapy for a variety of different reasons. You may have an area of your life that you are keen to explore, or perhaps you are less sure and that's ok too. Often the therapeutic relationship can offer new perspectives or awareness - perhaps new potentials or the rediscovery of something 'lost'. We are all unique I will work with you in a way that honours your experiences and respects you as an individual - supporting you to find your own direction and resources.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an effective, evidence based treatment for anxiety disorders, depression and trauma. Life experiences can impact negatively on current wellbeing and self-esteem. We can use CBT and/or EMDR to explore these experiences and how they have impacted on your feelings, thoughts and behaviours. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is particularly effective for childhood trauma including child sexual abuse. I have a particular interest in working with trauma and self esteem. I am a collaborative therapist and I will work with you towards the goals you identify as important to you.

Troubled minds can be hard to sooth. Feelings can seem too much to bear. Managing yourself and life may become increasingly demanding, and the feelings of purpose, ease and joy can get squeezed out. Or these feelings seem to disappear overnight and you say, something is missing! Or perhaps you find you have dropped down a hole, the one you keep scrambling from. Maybe you feel unable to control things. Frustrations may arise. Clinically significant issues can become a problem. Anxieties, depressions, sadness, anger, prolonged grief, addictions, loss of energy and motivation, even of sense of self, and physical conditions can result.

Congratulations on making the first brave step of reaching out for support. This can feel like a big step into the unknown, which is why I work in ways to make sure you feel comfortable and safe in the sessions. I have a therapeutic interest in early years relationships which are formed with parents / care givers. I understand individuals make meaning of their experiences and so my philosophical approach steers away from the role of ‘expert’ towards an equal relationship with clients.
