Counselling with Me​

​​​​​​​ 
About You….
 
Sometimes we find ourselves tossed about by the storms of life and need a place to drop anchor and get our bearings. 
 
Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety, panic or feeling low?  
Or maybe there’s a specific issue that is really bothering you?  
Or a difficult event or loss that feels overwhelming?
Or possibly, you would just benefit from talking and processing with someone outside of your situation?
 
If so, I’d be happy to explore whether counselling with me may be of benefit to you.
 
About Me ….
 
My name is Jo and I am an experienced, qualified counsellor registered with the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), and the Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC).
As well as working in private practice in Cheltenham and in peaceful, rural Herefordshire near Ross-on -Wye, I also work on a voluntary basis for Listening Post, a counselling agency in Cheltenham. I work within The Ethical Framework for Good Practice set by the BACP.  
 
My areas of experience include: anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, bereavement, loss, relationship difficulties, depression, abuse, anger management, faith and spirituality, sexuality and low self-esteem. 
 
About Counselling with me….
 
I seek to provide a warm and compassionate environment to build a relationship of trust with you, so that you can feel able to discuss whatever is troubling you, no matter how painful or difficult.  Together, we would explore the challenges you face, with a view to helping you become more aware of your own thoughts, feelings, responses and desires, and to discover ways of moving forward.  
Often we compound our suffering by being our own harshest critic and I would endeavour to help you learn to be a better friend to yourself, which can help you build your resilience and gain more peace.
 
 
What next….
 
You can get in touch with me by email, text or phone call to arrange a first appointment. It is important that you feel that you can trust me and work with me so this session gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. 
 
During this session we will talk about why you want to come to counselling, the difficulties you are experiencing and what you want from counselling. I will ask you to complete a brief assessment questionnaire (CORE), used widely in the NHS, to assist in this process.  At the end of the session we can agree more appointment times if you wish to continue with more sessions.
 
Sessions would usually be for an hour on a weekly basis but can be fortnightly if you prefer.  You can have as few or as many sessions as you wish.
