At Dandelions we know what it is like when your whole world is turned upside down by the loss of a loved one. Grief taints every aspect of your life, even parts of it that didn't involve the person that has died, and the intense variety of emotions can feel overwhelming. You may find yourself wondering where to begin in putting your life back together, perhaps you're not sure you want to. At Dandelions we are here to care, listen and be with you through your grief process; to help you work out who you now are in light of the loss and to gain the confidence to deal with life as it now is.

I understand that life can be difficult - we all face struggles which can be overwhelming and difficult to manage. You may be battling with your self esteem, having difficulty with past traumas, feelings of anxiety or depression or fighting other issues which are negatively impacting your life. It doesn’t have to be that way- I believe we have the power within us to heal and grow, to become the master of our feelings and emotions, even in rocky waters. The great thing is, you have made the first step and are looking for help. I am passionate about helping people through their issues and empowering them to live more enriching lives.

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.

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.

Life is tough. We all experience loss and difficulties along the way but sometimes those things can feel unmanageable or overwhelming. Maybe the situation is just too big, or maybe it's an accumulation of things that have built up over time that mean you feel you need some therapeutic support. As an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist, trained in Person-Centred, CBT and Attachment Theory with a particular specialism in working with traumatic loss and bereavement I can provide an empathic space for you to work through your current issues and to explore how your past may be informing your responses in the here and now.

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.

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.

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!

Are you feeling hopeless, low, anxious, lost or just not quite right? Struggling with imposter syndrome, overwhelmed or unfulfilled? I can offer you a calm, compassionate, non-judgemental space to explore whatever's on your mind or in your heart. I believe that you deserve an approach to therapy that's truly as unique as you are, so I never use 'a one size fits all' approach. Instead, I draw from a wide array of tools, approaches and theories - always working alongside you to find out what's best for you. Whether there's a certain event that's brought you to counselling, or things just don't feel 'quite right', counselling can help.

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.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Derby?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Derby specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
