Intuition / Contact

Alongside her work as a respected local artist, Jo is a qualified, practising counsellor, with an Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, a certificate in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), a Diploma in Art Therapy Skills, and a certificate in Person-Centred Art Therapy skills. She has been a volunteer counsellor for the bereavement charity CRUSE since 2001.

Jo offers counselling with person-centred art therapy skills. She believes passionately in the power of healing through art and that images can speak louder than words. This more creative approach to therapy is gentle, non invasive and does not require any artistic skill.

Art therapy focuses on the creative process, the purpose being to enable clients to safely share difficult and sometimes painful emotions. Deeper self-awareness, growth and understanding can be achieved through the creation of spontaneous and intuitive images, which are then explored within a trusting and supportive relationship.

"Images are extensions of the self- made visible in symbolic art form. To have dialogue with such an image in a person-centred way, to reflect back aspects of the image- size, colour, position of the shapes, use of material, the process of image making, that which is missing- can help the client to connect, make bridges between the image and the self. Healing, growth and integration can occur at every level of development." (Liesl Silverstone, pioneer of person-centred art therapy)

Art therapy can help with many issues such as anxiety, stress, depression, trauma, bereavement and loss, but can be adapted to most concerns.

Jo adheres to the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) code of ethics, and is a member of PCATA (Person-Centred Art Therapy Association).
