Hello! I’m Jo
Founder of Elephant in the Room Psychotherapy Ltd.
BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist & EMDR Practitioner.
My passion is to provide high quality, effective and responsive therapy to those in need. I have over twenty-five years experience of working with people experiencing mental health difficulties, in a variety of fields. I have worked in residential settings, high-security establishments and community services. I aim to provide individuals with a confidential and therapeutic space to explore their issues in a non-judgemental setting.
Elephant in the Room Psychotherapy ltd also continues to build partnerships with companies, both large and small (including NHS) to help break down the stigma of mental health. Elephant in the Room Psychotherapy ltd aims to start to normalise discussing mental health and encourage us all to engage in compassionate and meaningful conversations.
We believe that a simple and caring conversation can make a huge difference to people’s lives and overall experience.

How We Work
Our philosophy as therapists is that we may have experience in working in mental health and knowledge regarding certain problems, but you are an expert with regards to you. We, therefore, see the therapeutic process as a mutual journey where we work together to help identify and work through problems you have identified as causing you difficulty.
Our entire team is committed to ethical working. As your therapist, we will ensure that we offer a safe place to explore and learn from issues causing you anxiety and upset. We feel very strongly that a key part of effective therapy is introducing and maintaining professional boundaries from the outset and this is an integral part of our practice. You can therefore expect the following from our sessions:
> To be treated with respect and understanding
> To be our priority during our sessions
> For us to be transparent and honest in my practice
> To receive a professional service
This is supported by the fact that we are fully DBS checked in addition to being covered by professional liability insurance.
We are passionate about helping people regain control of their own lives. Our work from the outset is about enabling you, as our client, to develop and practice tools that you can use in your life after therapy. Therefore we will be working together towards your recovery.
" Thank you just doesn't come close to what I feel. But for the want of other words they are deep felt. I was scared to start with, but you quickly gained my trust and that is a huge deal to me. I wish you all the best and may you help many many more people."
"I started therapy worried about not clicking with my therapist. But at all times I have felt comfortable and safe. I am blown away with the progress I have made and of how much of a massive impact this has had on me."
"This has been a great experience. I was doubtful at first but its been such a positive experience. I was able to feel comfortable, talk freely and connect with Jo. To be able to speak confidentially made it worth while."
