Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy concentrates on how your thoughts (cognitions) influence your feelings and behaviour. It recognises and challenges unhelpful thoughts which maintain the problems you encounter. The objective of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to experience healthier thoughts and feelings.

Counselling

(5 Reviews)
Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You determine which matter regarding your childhood or adulthood you discuss. The objective of counselling is to enable you to speak about a problem and discover a solution which is appropriate for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

"This was my first time going for therapy, and I did not regret it. Jo is very kind, cheerful and non-judgemental. I felt incredibly at ease during the sessions. I cannot thank her enough for her help."

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"Jo is very pleasant and genuine, and inspired confidence from the start. She had a very clear sense of my priorities, and the things that were really troubling me, but was also excellent at dealing with other issues as they arose. In talking to me, she used a range of methods, and some of the sessions were demanding and "difficult", but I expected that, given what we were discussing, and she always had very positive goals in mind, which I think were achieved. She struck me as being not only highly-skilled, but also very conscientious in reviewing the sessions and helping me to move on into other areas of concern. Overall, I am very glad that I contacted Jo, she helped me a great deal, and I would recommend her unreservedly."

"Jo is really personable and easy to talk to, she used a variety of techniques that helped me get to the root of some historic issues, dealing with a narcissistic parent both in childhood and practical advice for day to day. Working with her has really improved my self esteem, anxiety and depressive mood. I can't recommend her enough."

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"Jo instantly put me at ease from the first conversation over the phone and continued to do so throughout all sessions. She is always professional and friendly. Jo clearly has a wide variety of practical skills and techniques which sets her apart from previous counsellors I have seen. She allowed me to open up and explore difficult parts from my past and I never felt like I was being judged. I was given weekly tasks to complete which really helped me to re-discover my shattered self confidence. She has given me a good set of skills to handle the struggles of everyday life and how to handle emotions from my past when they arise again. I am truly grateful to Jo for the help she has given me, I feel like myself again after many years of struggle and denial. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for a good counsellor who listens yet also gives practical techniques to continue self therapy."

"Jo is so easy to talk to and made me feel extremely comfortable from the very first session. I honestly felt like I was talking to a friend when I was with her, her sense of humour when it was appropriate also made me feel so positive after the session especially when I entered feeling the complete opposite. My family and I are very grateful for all her help and I am so glad to have met her."

"Very easy going, helpful and funny. She would relate to situations and feelings I would talk about and made me feel at ease. Even when I wasn't in her session I would think about her advice and what she would say to me in the situation I am in. It was like talking to a friend and I really appreciated all her help and advice. "

She gave me a future to look forward to and for the 1st time in my life I felt happy within myself. She gave me the tools so I could deal with whatever comes my way.
