emotional or physical
panic attacks & stress

Counsellor & Psychotherapist
I am a mature Counselling and Pyschotherapies Post-Graduate and Supervisor of Counselling. Following intensive training grounded in clinical practice, I have an excellent theoretical and practical understanding of experiential person-centered therapy.
Qualified to post degree level, I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor & Psychotherapist with years of experience working as a University Counsellor and in private practice; trained to work with all areas of emotional and psychological distress in a person-centred way.
The relationship between us as client-therapist is foundational. Both experience and theory influence my understanding that the client, you, ultimately know the best way forward for yourself.

​I help to unravel the distress that hinders you from reaching your potential; or work with you to discover new meanings in the face of loss, suffering or adversity.

The theoretical framework that underpins my practice for supervising counsellors and psychotherapists integrates insights from several person-centred supervisory practitioners (Hawkins & Shohet, 2012; Page & Wosket, 2001; Shohet, 2008; Van Duerzen, 2009).
As a supervisor I am committed to providing a safe space where the fluidity of the process is safely held within a spacious encounter; to enable a quality of looking that endeavours to see things how they really are, primarily within the supervisee and the client. The aim is for a collaborative ethically-minded reflection on the therapeutic practice from both an internal and external perspective; a tentative exploration that investigates, challenges, contains and affirms.

My experience endorses that the supervisory relationship is best placed as a creative place of learning; a place where fears may be dissolved amidst a quality of connectivity that flows when attending to both the psyche and soul of the supervisee and their client.
" I was very nervous of coming to counselling as my previous experiences of going to counselling had left me feeling judged and alone. Jo’s empathy and warm support helped me to trust her with painful experiences and made me feel strong enough to work through them in a safe place. I always came away feeling more released from the baggage we had worked on together in that session, which I had carried with me for years. "
