About Me


My name is Jo Bentley-Walls and I'm a qualified Life Coach and experienced Humanistic Intergrative Person-Centred therapeutic counsellor. Before studying to become a Counsellor, I worked for over 30 years as a dental hygienist so have a wealth of experience in working with people, especially their phobias.
I am passionate about helping people understand and reconcile their emotional struggles and I am committed to providing a friendly, compassionate and unbiased counselling service to all my clients. My work is about helping people make better sense of themselves, whether it be relationship issues, bereavement, post traumatic stress, depression or anxiety.
Opting to receive counselling is often the most difficult step. As a professional therapist I aim to immediately make you feel safe. I will work together with you, respect you and value what you are bringing to your counselling sessions without judging you. I will help you make that first step and move forward.
I provide counselling services in Bournemouth, Devon, Cornwall and Birmingham but also provide telephone counselling so geography is not so important.
All work undertaken is done so in the strictest of confidence. I am fully insured and I work within the Ethical Framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotheraphy (BACP), of which I am a member.
