Level 4 Diploma in Relationship Counselling
BSc (hons) in Psychology & Counselling
Level 4 & 5 Psychotherapeutic Counselling (On-going)
Hello my name is Jo and I am a Yorkshire based Marriage Guidance and Relationship Counsellor. After initially completing my degree in Psychology & Counselling, I have continued my counselling studies, specialising in relationships with a focus on supporting the issues that many couples face throughout their lives together. Couples counselling differs to the traditional individual approach and requires a different set of skills and techniques to fully support the process. I am passionate about what I do and fully believe in the support and service I can offer clients in Yorkshire and across the UK, who are experiencing difficulties in their relationships and family dynamics.
After gaining the relevant experience and skills I started my own practice 1 week prior to lockdown and now offer my services online, supporting couples in Yorkshire and across the UK over video calling platforms. However, my training has not and will not stop. Counselling is an ever changing industry, requiring continued training and experience to ensure the service I offer is correct for the many different situations that can present for clients. For this reason I have continued my development in both professional courses and academic qualifications and I am currently working toward my level 5 Psychotherapeutic Counselling qualification which I believe will further enhance the skills and support I can offer my clients. If there is anything you would like to know about my experience or the service I offer please do get in touch and I will happily discuss your questions with you.

"I honestly thought couples counselling would be a case of going through the motions, so we could say we had tried. I didn't have any faith in it and actually felt a bit offended when my wife suggested it. I was wrong!
I now look forward to our sessions with Jo, I have learnt so much about my own behaviour and I feel like like my wife understands me so much more. We have learnt so much about how we communicate and how we can improve that, and, if something happens during the week that we can't figure out, we take it to our session with Jo and she supports us in working through it" 2021
