Counselling in Reading

Jo Hopkins - Counsellor in Reading, BerkshireI am an experienced psychodynamic counsellor and supervisor working in Reading.

It can be hard to know where to turn to for help when you are feeling unhappy, depressed, anxious or stressed. Often friends and family can get you through a difficult patch, but if they are not available, or you’d rather not turn to them, speaking to a counsellor, someone impartial and outside of your situation can help.

I see individual adults for weekly sessions providing a safe, confidential space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings and think about the difficulties you are facing. I believe the capacity to change lies within each person and the counselling process enables you to gain self-awareness so you can bring about the changes you desire and begin to live with a greater sense of freedom and fulfilment.

I am a registered, accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and follow their ethical framework for good practice.

My practice is located in central Reading, 10 minutes walk from the train station and on a main bus route. It is easily accessible to people coming from Bracknell, Wokingham, Slough, Henley, Wallingford and Basingstoke. Free parking is available in the road where I work.

Abuse, anger, anxiety, bereavement and loss, bullying, chronic illness, depression, domestic violence, eating disorders, identity, relationship difficulties, living with cancer, low self-esteem, self-harm, sexuality, spirituality and religion, stress and trauma.
