I am Jo Augustus. I am a HCPC registered Art Psychotherapist with 25 years of clinical experience working with a range of  clients presenting with mental health needs. I have also worked in a variety of professional settings including the HM Prison service. Alongside working with organisations I run a private practice.

I am also an EMDR Association UK registered and practising EMDR Therapist, and a qualified UKCP registered Clinical Supervisor. 

My  person-centred therapeutic approach is further influenced by psychoanalysis and attachment theory models.  Working with trauma informed approaches  also inspires my practice.
