Hi, I'm Jo and welcome to Freedom2Feel.
As a fully qualified Person-centred counsellor I work closely within the realities each client is living. I hold a strong ethos that every client is unique, irrespective of diagnosis or life challenges, and I believe that every client can find self-acceptance and change through therapy.
As a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I work within and am bound by their ethical framework, maintaining client autonomy and care at all times.
I work face to face or online and via telephone sessions. Online work awards clients the security of their own home and removes barriers of travel or distance when engaging in therapy.
I have worked with clients experiencing many of life's challenges or dark places, depression, grief, anxiety, low moods, and stresses and have worked with complex mental health diagnosis and trauma; this includes vulnerable offenders and those accessing mental health services.
All emotions are welcome within the therapeutic space. I feel that facilitating the space for a client to be real, within their process, and received in their authenticity by the therapist is what awards the opportunity for self-exploration and growth.
