Hi there.  My name is Jo Stephens and I would like to welcome you to the Homepage of my website.  I offer Psychotherapy, Counselling and Hypnotherapy in Southend-on-sea.  I work with adults and young people experiencing various symptoms of anxiety, health anxiety, GAD, social anxiety, depression, phobias, low self-esteem and confidence as well as needing assertiveness training among others, to empower and enable them to feel better. I am based in Chalkwell, Essex at Southbourne Physiotherapy, which is situated 3 minutes walk from Chalkwell station and 45 minutes from London Fenchurch Street Station. I have an up-to-date DBS check. In the time that I have been working therapeutically with adults and adolescents, I have gained invaluable experience and understanding of an individual's issues, needs and their perception of their own World experience, in other words how they 'see the world'.  I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work within the ethical framework of this organisation. 

Sometimes in life, we can feel 'overloaded', a little ‘lost’ (possibly feeling that we have lost our path) as well as feeling anxious, depressed and other negative emotions. These negative feelings may originate from dysfunction in our everyday thoughts, feelings, and behaviours or even past and present experiences, which then cause the human body to become a little imbalanced. It is this imbalance that may lead to physical, emotional or even spiritual unease that then cause physical symptoms that we experience.
