Counselling in Reading

Jo Hopkins - Counsellor in Reading, BerkshireI am an experienced psychodynamic counsellor and supervisor working in central Reading offering counselling to those wishing to make lasting changes in themselves and their relationships.

When you’re feeling anxious, depressed, stressed or unhappy, it can be hard to know where to turn for help. Family and friends may be able to give you support, but if this is not enough or not available, turning to a counsellor can provide impartial, professional help with emotional and psychological difficulties.

I offer counselling to young people (16+) and adults. I provide a safe, confidential space where you can explore your difficulties, gaining understanding of yourself and your relationships so you can begin to bring about the changes you need to live a more fulfilling and freer life. I see individuals weekly, and when necessary, more frequently (up to three times a week) for 50 minute sessions.

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, 8 minutes walk from the North Interchange of the train station and on a main bus route between central Reading and Caversham. It is easily accessible from Caversham, Henley and Wallingford to the North ; Slough, Bracknell and Wokingham to the East; Theale, Thatcham and Newbury to the West and Basingstoke and Tadley to the South.

Can I help?

I have experience working with the following:

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.
