My Approach

There are many reasons why someone might seek counselling. Feeling overwhelmed, stressed, low, anxious or stuck are some examples. Bereavement, anger, bullying, exams, relationships or wanting to explore past experiences, might also mean you to want to talk things through.

At Jo Robinson Counselling, my approach to therapy is rooted in empathy, understanding, and collaboration. I believe that everyone's journey is unique, and I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. My goal is to support you in developing the skills and tools you need to lead a fulfilling and meaningful life.

I work in an Integrative way, which means I use a range of theories and skills depending on your individual circumstances. Incorporating a Humanistic perspective, I place Carl Roger's core conditions of empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard at the heart of the therapeutic relationship. This forms a bedrock to exploring more unconscious behaviours and beliefs that could be unknowingly influencing your feelings and actions. 

Sessions last 50 minutes each and there is no limit to how many you have. This would be agreed together and reviewed regularly.
