Jo Naxton Psychotherapies


My name is Joanna.

The therapy I offer is evidence based and draws upon different approaches, such as Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, CBT, or Jungian Sandplay. 


I have a relaxed way of working and I believe the relationship we build is as important as the work we do together.

I can provide 'one to one' therapy where we would either be in the same room together or online via ZOOM.

I am passionate about research, particularly that of Self-Injury and I have experience of working with those that injure themselves and offer an acceptance approach as opposed to cessation.




I provide a psychological therapeutic service for Children and Young People offering a safe environment for secondary school aged children (11-16, with learning difficulties such as Autism and Asperger's) to explore personal difficulties, such as low mood, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, generalised anxiety disorder, phobias, social anxiety, poor self-esteem, separation anxiety, self-injury and support with anger.



Online therapeutic services available - Please contact me for availability:


I spend time Lecturing Counselling , Research and Health and Social Care at Sunderland University and deliver tailored workshops for a variety of education providers


Thank you for visiting.
