Jo Barnett - MBACP (Accred)

I offer counselling and psychotherapy with young people and adults. I have gained 14 years, experience in counselling practice and 24 years, experience working with vulnerable people in the health sector. My experience has included working within charitable counselling agencies, schools, a Women’s Centre, a Drug and Alcohol Recovery Service and a Sexual Abuse Referral Centre. I’ve regularly worked with young people that have been referred by the Children’s and Adolescent Mental Health service.

Having been trained as an Integrative Counsellor I adapt the way I work with clients to meet their individual’s needs. This includes working with a variety of approaches, including Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Art Therapy.

At the heart of the therapeutic relationship I offer a safe and non-judgemental space, where trust can be built to allow the expression of thoughts and feelings, which may have been difficult to explore or process with others. I will focus on the priorities and goals you have for the sessions, working either long term or short term.

  • Addictions
  • Anger Management
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Relationship Breakdowns
  • Bullying
  • Bereavement
  • Substance Misuse
  • Eating Disorder
