Talbot Counselling & Psychotherapy

A Brief Introduction...

Jo Henshall  MBACP (Accred) - founder of  Talbot Counselling Services based in Poole, Dorset. Providing comprehensive Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. 

"I am passionate about providing high standards of competency and ethical practice, enabling and empowering individuals towards improved mental health and well ​being. My approach to therapy is integrative which means I have been trained in, and can employ several theoretical approaches.

I draw from​ Third Wave  Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Humanistic/Person Centred, Psychodynamic concepts, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Existential approaches to adapt the theory to provide individually tailored and bespoke treatment plans.
