Jo Gibson - Psychotherapy and Counselling in Stevenage and online.
I am a BACP Registered, post-graduate, trauma-informed, psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, certified TRE practitioner, and trainer with thirteen years of experience, working with many different issues life can throw at us.
Working with individuals, both face to face in Stevenage and online, in a way that places you, at the heart of the work. I offer skilled compassionate support to help you untangle and understand what is happening for you. We might do this by exploring, re-evaluating and processing feelings, beliefs, patterns of behaviour, thinking habits, patterns in the body and energetic influence and impact. I work in experiential, focussing and creative ways to support your journey towards greater understanding and healing.
You are welcome and seen for exactly and everything that you are, in the light and the shadow, without judgement in a confidential setting.
I work with many life issues, which can present as problems with self- esteem, shame, anxiety, depression, disconnection and meaninglessness, as well as trauma and PTSD.
I have a special interest in relational trauma (domestic abuse, sexual violence, childhood sexual abuse, early trauma and bonding issues), and traumatic bereavement. I am trained to work with and if appropriate, to process trauma memories.
I enjoy working creatively and include somatic experiencing and focussing to give a voice to experiences without words.
I am currently working online through zoom or on the telephone. When face to face working resumes, my therapy room is in Stevenage, Hertfordshire and I see clients from all over the County including, Hitchin, Welwyn, Knebworth, Walkern and Royston. I will also continue to see clients nationwide online.
Counselling and psychotherapy is a process, a journey if you like to support you to understand yourself in connected and embodied ways so you are able to move towards a way of being that can help you fully engage with life and all it brings.
During our first session, we will talk about how we will work together. Usually, we would meet each week, and review at timely intervals during the course of the therapy.
"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change" - Carl Rodgers
