"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
"Jo was professional, eloquent and non judgemental. The counselling helped me articulate things I was thinking but found it difficult to say and helped me understand things about myself that I would have never been able to achieve alone. Whilst life still presents me with challenges I can cope with them as I feel so much stronger now, my anxiety has reduced." 2021 as seen on Yell.com
"After 5 years of marriage my relationship changed, we stopped talking as much and I just didn't feel happy. All of my friends told me it was just a phase but after a year of feeling unhappy I decided to get help. Jo helped us realise that we had been hiding our true feelings from each other, we were both scared to talk in case the other decided to leave. We learnt so much about each other during our sessions with Jo and it made us so much stronger. We are both so glad we came to counselling, thank you x" 2020

"Thank you so much for helping us, we honestly thought we were ready to split up. When we first contacted you we were very nervous, it was our last hope of making it work. It did and we couldn't be more grate full. It was the best decision we could have made. Yes we still argue and we still have bad days but we know how to get through them now, we talk more and we listen, listening was something we both struggled with but now it just comes naturally". 2020
"After 18 years of marriage I found out my wife was having an affair. I was at rock bottom and I didn't know what to do. I didn't want to leave, we had both invested so much but I couldn't get the trust back, I just couldn't forget. Going to counselling was a hard decision and my wife was reluctant, she thought she would be made to feel bad. It wasn't like that at all. Jo helped us listen to each other, we looked past the affair and worked out why it happened in the first place. It was hard work, we both had to say and hear things we didn't like but it made us stronger. In time I forgave, I didn't forget but I made the decision to move past it. Now our relationship is more fulfilling, we talk, we spend time together and we are happier. Jo was brilliant, thank you so much. 2020
"I came to counselling because I needed to talk. I didn't feel heard in my own life, didn't feel seen or able to speak freely. The 1st session with Jo I just cried, it felt like I rambled on for hours but it was so freeing and I didn't feel stupid or embarrassed. Counselling has given me the space to be me, for just 1 hour a week I can say what I want, work through my thoughts and not have to worry about what other people think". 2020
