Welcome Welcome Welcome

My name is Jo Ann and I have been counselling people just like you since 2005. I am a very experienced and engaging psychotherapeutic counsellor and I give my expertise and time within a supportive and at times challenging therapy space. I have a vast wealth of knowledge and experience of working voluntarily in varied counselling agencies and GP NHS surgeries. I am a very experienced private practice counsellor.

Through the counselling therapy process, I will listen to you, guide you, and be able to support you through any difficult feelings and emotions.

I have a broad range of knowledge of mental health issues including, Anxiety, depression Identity, loss, trauma, childhood attachment issues, and many more and I engage with my clients in a very professional, relaxed and transparent way.
