My name is Jo Stephens and I offer Counselling, Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy in the Southend-On-Sea area. I am based at Therapy for Life based at Weston Chambers in central Southend. In these unprecedented times and having personal experience of anxiety and depression I work with adults and adolescents to alleviate symptoms of anxiety; health, GAD and social etc, depression, low self-esteem and confidence, relationship issues, anger, abuse, and dissociation, as well as providing assertiveness training.

Learning to communicate your experiences and your needs to loved ones; overcoming social isolation, and coping with the extra effort it can take to be around other people; finding your place and valuing yourself in a society that doesn’t understand or appreciate those who are different in any way – these are changes that I can help you to make. If you are an adult, disabled, or with a long-term health condition, neurodivergent (autistic or with ADHD in particular); or if you are someone who cares for someone else in this position, perhaps you are finding that the things others take for granted are buried under layers of extra work.
I have extensive experience of working with primary & secondary school aged children using creative techniques to explore difficulties. Whether it's imaginative play, storytelling or image making all are intended to help clients not only engage in self-exploration, but also create purposeful meaning-making through visually expressing experiences, perceptions, feelings and thoughts. Creative Therapy is for Adults & Teens too offering an opportunity to go beyond "thinking" about how we feel to create connection to our embodied "felt" sense. We will work together to help enhancing self awareness alongside self empowerment & resilience.
I am an Integrative therapist which means I use various therapies and tailor the therapy to your needs, as we are all individual and this approach I feel offers the bespoke service clients require.
