Hi I'm Jo and I'm an accredited Counsellor, Psychologist and EMDR therapist. I'm based in Sidcup, Bexley and I offer face to face, online, text, telephone and walk and talk therapy.
It can be difficult to take the first step to therapy which is why I offer a free 15 minute introductory session so that we can have a chat to see if I'm the right person for you.
I'm currently working face to face, in my consulting room or in nature, as well as online whichever suits your needs. Changes have been made to my counselling practice if you would like to attend in person, to keep us safe and well, particularly if online therapy is not for you. If you prefer face to face but not indoors then I can offer walk and talk therapy which can be just as affective as being in the consulting room.
I work with adults of all ages and diverse cultural backgrounds, specialising in anxiety, depression, trauma, stress, anger, low self esteem and self confidence.
I offer counselling for parents, on an individual basis, specialising in perinatal mental health, birth trauma, pregnancy and infant loss, postnatal depression/anxiety and parenthood.
How can talking to a counsellor help me?
Talking to a counsellor can help you to explore issues in your life that may be causing you distress, helping you gain a better understanding of yourself, thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviour. Seeing things more clearly allows you to make decisions, enabling choice and facilitating change.
What do you offer?
As an accredited counsellor, I offer therapy in a safe, comfortable and confidential setting where you can explore issues or feelings which are causing you difficulty.
I also offer Walk and talk therapy outside of the therapy room, walking side by side with a client in nature, rather than indoors and face to face.
Bottled up feelings such as anger, grief, shame and guilt can lead to depression and anxiety and become very intense, impacting not only on you but others around you.
Counselling gives you an opportunity to talk them through on a regular basis, freely and openly, in a way that is often difficult to do with friends and family.
