Hello my name is Jo

A bit about me!
I have worked as a Psychological Therapist, Clinical Supervisor and a Manager in UK Inpatient & Community Mental Health, IAPT, Recovery/addiction field for nearly twenty years working for a range of adult services.  My career began in a great job working with street based sex workers in Manchester where I worked with a range of addictive behaviors' & psychological issues.  Since then I have enjoyed working both in NHS Mental Health Services as a CBT Psychotherapist & EMDR Therapist and running my own Private Clinic & Supervision Practice in the UK.
I am a Post Graduate qualified Clinical Supervisor offering Clinical Supervision for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dual Diagnosis (AOD).  I am a UK Accredited CBT Psychotherapist with the BABCP, an Accredited UK & Ireland EMDR Therapist.  

I offer both Online & In-Person Psychological Therapy and Clinical Supervision and have clients from all over the world.  We can use the system that you feel most comfortable with.  Some people prefer video calling and some prefer instant messaging - please ask for more information as to how this all works.  In person sessions will be held in Melbourne.


Its all about you!

Some people enter therapy saying "Im not quite sure what's going on, I don't feel right Im just not happy" or "my mental health is not great at the moment" these are valid reason to give therapy a try to make sense of your thoughts & emotions.
