Life can present us with challenges, change and conflict. Sometimes we have an overwhelming sense that something needs to be explored or we identify behaviours and feelings within us that we want to change. We might carry pain and trauma that needs healing. The journey clients go through is an individual process. I work with an integrative approach to allow for growth that is encompassing of the individual. I see change, growth and healing as a journey of courage, compassion and insight. Through my work I provide my clients with a safe, empathic and honest space that allows therapeutic and positive change to take place.

I am a person centered and psychodynamic counsellor incorporating CBT and solution focused techniques. I work a lot with the unconscious mind; 95 percent of brain activity is beyond our conscious awareness, so it's helpful to delve into the root of our problems that may be hidden from our consciousness. I work creatively with adults, young people and children using art therapy, guided visualisations and stone work to make the therapy experience less intimidating. I teach mindfulness, help people grow in personal development and overcoming past traumas.

Have you ever wished you could say how you really felt, and that someone would take the time to listen to you? Perhaps you have kept your thoughts and feelings to yourself through fear of being put down, judged, or laughed at? Or maybe you put your problems aside because you feel the other person is more important? Counselling is the opportunity to sort your thoughts; gives you time to work out what you really feel, the space to consider your options, and decide what you feel is best for you. People come for different reasons, but all wish the same outcomes; to be heard, be understood, feel better and find ways to enjoy their life.

Everyone experiences emotional difficulties at some point in their life, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Sometimes it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what’s wrong in our lives. Equally, you may know what’s wrong, but not necessarily how to go about changing things. I think it is important to recognise that no two people are the same, and I utilise my skills and training to customise counselling sessions in a collaborative way. I provide a non-judgemental, safe, confidential and therapeutic space where we can better understand what’s going on for you and explore ways to create or restore balance in your life.

Everyone can struggle at times - with anxiety, low self-esteem, depression or just feeling low. Close relationships can go stale or get into difficulties. Bereavements can knock us sideways - sometimes 'hitting' suddenly even though it happened some years ago. Recent or past traumatic events can have a huge impact on our wellbeing. These are some of the emotional difficulties people struggle with. Close relationships have their ups and downs and emotions, even negative ones, are a normal part of our daily lives. It's when they drag us down, affect our quality of life, become overwhelming, that counselling can be a great help.

Hi, I'm Jo. In a discreet city location I offer a calm and non-judgemental therapeutic space to explore who you are, your distress and worries, and what you are struggling with. I specialise in trauma, difficult life and attachment experiences, and abuse/assault (sexual, emotional, or physical). How you feel about yourself and being in a post-traumatic state can affect your psychological well-being and how you relate to others. It can be lonely and distressing not feeling valued, heard or acknowledged. Rather than being free to be yourself and live more fully, you feel restricted, conflicted, and on edge, wanting change and relief.

Life is short, and struggling emotionally can get in the way of so much. I have particular experience working with persistent anxiety & depression, living beyond mental health diagnosis, bereavement & the effects of cancer/illness. I also work with creativity/intensity/giftedness. I won't label you, or feel you have anything “wrong” with you. Life is hard, complicated and can have a huge effect on all of us. Our biology affects us, our past experiences affect us, and life and the future affect us too. But how we respond to those effects, and live right now, is the most powerful tool we have.

Life can be challenging. It can be difficult opening up to someone about the worst that's happened to us, about the parts of ourselves we struggle with. For some dealing with trauma can impact how we treat others, having negative impacts on relationships & life. I’ve worked for over 25 years with those who’ve experienced complex trauma: who’ve lived/worked in conflict zones; been abused by family; struggle to emotionally regulate; have been abusive & with relationship breakdown. As a couple it’s important to feel the therapist you choose is able to work with you around your relationship.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in LE1 are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in LE1 then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in LE1, or Child Psychologists in LE1.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like LE1 psychologists specialising in EMDR.


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 LE1 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.
