Jo BullenFamily/Systemic psychotherapist
I have completed clinical training in Occupational Therapy and Systemic Psychotherapy. Prior to clinical training I studied Social Anthropology which underpins my interest in the dynamics of human social/relational systems. Throughout my academic and clinical journey I have developed a specialist interest in the mind/body interface and how health and illness are understood and communicated within the self, in relationships and in the wider community. I work with individuals, couples and families and my focus is thinking about how our relationships, interactional patterns and dynamics can become difficult or stuck and can start to cause us problems. Through understanding how these patterns and dynamics have emerged we can start to think about how to connect in a different way and consequently use these relationships as a resource for understanding and healing.
OnlineI also provide my services online.
Issues often worked with
I offer a free consultation session for us to talk and decide if we would like to continue working together. Sessions are 50 minutes. The fees charged are negotiable but as a guideline I charge £60 per individual therapy session and £80 per couple/family session. Please contact me if you would like to discuss this further.
