Jo Dice, PgDip
You may have tried conventional counselling or psychotherapy before. My approach is different. With a deep respect for both ancient and modern wisdom, I invite you to engage on a therapy journey that utilises knowledge, science, body, soul and spirit for holistic healing on a deep and cellular level. We can utilise logic, understanding, self-exploration, life stories and narratives. We can incorporate meditation, bodywork, breathing exercises and visualisations if that feels right for you. We can work in a variety of ways that suit your personality and needs. Sometimes you will just need to offload, be heard, witnessed and vent, and that is welcome too. Therapy with me provides a curious space to explore your unique experience, and what it means to be a multi-faceted and alive human being in this modern world. I will not try to diagnose you, pick holes in your personality, or attack your self-worth and self-esteem. I will treat you with the utmost respect. Through working together, we can find tools to help you overcome and find relief from your struggles. I can provide comfort, reassurance and affirmation, without blaming you. I hope you will feel completely understood, seen and heard. You may feel like you are never going to get better or that there is something inherently wrong with you. By reaching out for help you are demonstrating great courage, and I would like to offer you hope. If you would like to begin a new journey towards integration, making positive changes in your life and feeling healed within, please visit my website and contact me to arrange a free twenty-minute introductory session. I will feel honoured and humbled to witness your healing journey, walking you home to wholeness.
I am an experienced Integrative and Psychedelic Integration Psychotherapist, and I am incredibly passionate about my work. I have personally experienced transformational and life changing results from working with psychedelics and expansive states of consciousness evoked through meditation, ceremony and breathwork. Through my personal work and the subsequent integration process, which has become a part of my daily life, I have overcome both physical illness and psychological distress. Which is why I am so enthusiastic to work in this field, to help people heal and be happier. I have undertaken comprehensive training within the field of navigating psychedelics and integrative psychotherapy, as well as having twenty years of nursing experience, bringing a wealth of physical and mental health knowledge. The core philosophy of my work is to integrate knowledge and science with matters of the body, soul and spirit. I have a curious and scientific approach, as well as a deep respect for ancient, indigenous, spiritual and shamanic wisdom. The process of healing and personal growth takes time, work and patience. I believe in the process of therapy, because I have been through it, and I have seen and felt deep healing and growth in my own life. Integration for me means accepting all of your life experience and learning to love yourself deeply. Developing resilience and the ability to bounce back. Eventually, reclaiming your life story and traumas as that which makes you a beautifully strong and complex human being.
