Therapist & Counsellor (MBACP)
My name is Jo Salsbury, I am an integrative therapist offering both short and long-term therapy to adults and young people. I currently provide face-to-face sessions at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston and Dalston, as well as offering sessions online if requested.
People come to counselling for many reasons, perhaps for support in coping with a specific issue such as a relationship, a difficult decision to be made or to deal with a loss or trauma.
You may simply want a space to express your thoughts and feelings, and to know that you are heard, or you may want to explore more broadly who and where you are in life.
Whatever your reason for seeking therapy, I offer a caring and confidential place where we can focus on your life and your story.
How I work
I have an open, conversational style and use a range of counselling techniques to suit each person’s preferences and individual situations.
I draw on traditions including humanistic, existential, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioural therapy, and am also trained to blend elements of coaching into therapy where appropriate.
Using this range of approaches allows for both deep exploration and reflection, for example, identifying inner conflicts or patterns in your life, or making connections between your past and present, whilst also facilitating more active, sometimes change-oriented work.
Everyone is different and there are no fixed outcomes for therapy. Simply talking can provide much-needed relief and for some people, this is enough.
For others, our work together leads to a deeper self-understanding and an ability to live more fully within their particular circumstances, whilst others are actively looking to make changes and may develop particular goals to work towards.
Sometimes people don’t know exactly what they want from therapy, and in this case, we can explore this together. My approach is collaborative and your needs and best interests are always central to our work.
I have experience with working across a number of issues and concerns including anxiety and depression, loss, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, sexual issues, identity, work and career-related issues, parenting, trauma and abuse.
I work with clients from diverse cultural and social backgrounds, and I have provided therapy in various settings including educational institutions and the charity sector. I also have experience working with individuals with Autistic Spectrum Conditions and ADHD.
Before becoming a counsellor I worked as a teacher in several London colleges and schools. This gave me an understanding of the issues and concerns facing young people and their families, and a recognition of the impact that working in pressured environments can have on health and well-being.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their Ethical Framework.
My standard fee is £60 per 50-minute session. I also offer some lower-cost slots.
