“Jo has been working with me for a few weeks now and I am finding it very helpful. She helps me to think clearly about how my bereavements have affected me. I look forward to our sessions very much. I feel able to say things to her that I would not be able to say to my family and friends and this frees me up to say exactly how I feel”.
"Jo is very calming and understanding, and makes you feel at ease when talking to her. She introduced me to drawing as therapy which has helped me immensely. I would recommend her to anyone"
“From my very first session I felt totally at ease and comfortable with Jo. Her communicational and observational skills were excellent. Whilst always professional she could empathise with situations, show compassion and ask pertinent questions to help me try to work through my thoughts and feelings. I have benefitted greatly from the counselling sessions with Jo.”
