I also support clients using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ) and Mindfulness.
I work with clients that primarily struggle with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) symptoms and anxiety disorders. My clients experience contamination, responsibility, religious/scrupulosity, relationship, health, symmetry, and 'Pure O' OCD symptoms. I offer formal assessments, treatment proposals, and I regularly educate and support clients to learn specialist skills, tools and techniques to successfully manage their OCD. This includes learning to diffuse from and accept unwanted thoughts, resist the urge to perform compulsions, and improve self-esteem. I am experienced working with mild, moderate, or severe OCD.

I specialise in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) along side other integrative therapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Mindfulness and hypnotherapy. The framework my approach is built on is REBT, yet as each of us are different, I integrate the other therapies to suit each individual. Some clients benefit more from rationalising thoughts and beliefs, while some need help getting over the past, and some need help with moving forward. I work with my clients to address issues, create and reach goals, and make the most of life.

Hi, I'm Jo and thank you for taking the time to stop by my profile. So you've decided to take what feels like a scary yet very important step towards making a difference in your life and are looking for the right help with this - yes? Finding a safe, trustworthy and comfortable place is so important when it comes to therapy and I strive to offer this, either in my therapy room, via video link or over the phone, so that you can get help where ever you are. I'm trained in a variety of Counselling Theories so we can make the therapy fit you, rather than to try to fit you in to a 'therapy box' of one theory fits all.

As a Clinical Psychologist, I work with individuals with a range of difficulties who want to improve their lives. Clients I see struggle with attachment trauma, anxiety, depression, somatic symptoms and self-criticism. They often feel drained, have little energy, live with pain, gastrointestinal complaints, and PTSD symptoms. For many, relationships are challenging, and trusting others to access help is a struggle. Through our work together, we develop greater awareness of how they relate to others in intimate relationships, and the impact this has on their body and mind, which helps them to relate to themselves differently too.

My approach includes evidence-based and alternative therapies, such as internal family systems, working with the body, acceptance and commitment therapy, emotion regulation, nurturing self-compassion, and mindfulness.
My goal is to work with you on what you want to achieve. This usually starts with exploring you and your life to identity what we're working with. Below you will find where I have experience, what I need from you is a willingness to work together, if you feel that I'm not the right fit for you after a session, that is quite ok!

I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) in my work.
As a Clinical Psychologist I am passionate about working with people to address their emotional and mental health difficulties and to achieve their treatment goals. I have a particular interest in working with addictions, trauma, and anxiety disorders and as such these are my main areas of expertise. In addition to working privately, I also worked in an NHS Addictions Service until recently, predominantly with alcohol and illicit drugs, and as a result much of my work was with people with complex mental health needs.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorising that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Taunton or for a Taunton ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
