About me

My name is Jo Thacker

It takes a lot of courage to ask for help, I am here to listen to you. Whatever your story, talking about it will help you. By working together, you can improve your life. A better future is possible for you.


I am a qualified BACP Integrative Counsellor who offers a kind, caring, non-judgmental safe space for your sessions. Talking really does help. I am passionate about listening to people and will give you the time and space to talk. I have an interest in grief, trauma, and abuse with several years’ experience in this area.  I have first hand experience of military life and understand the stresses and strains that come with that for serving personnel, veterans, their spouses and families. ​

My approach is integrative which means that I draw on a variety of different therapeutic approaches depending on what therapy might suit you best. I hope to help you understand yourself better to assist you in making positive changes in your life. Counselling can change your life for the better.
