MEETJONO

CO-FOUNDER

Accredited Mental Health Social Worker (AASW)

I am an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker who has over 10 years experience supporting young people, adults and families through Community Mental Health Services, Acute Care, Child Protection / Housing Support, Adolescent Drug & Alcohol Support in Sydney and London.

 

Working collaboratively, we seek to gain insight into how our past  impacts our present. Most people have experienced trauma in differing degrees. How we process trauma, can create different parts within self, disconnect from our emotions and strengthen maladaptive coping strategies. My therapy focuses on becoming curious and connecting with all our different parts. Learning how to manage our parts and create healthier coping strategies to respond to the challenging world we live in today.  

 

I work from a strengths, trauma informed approach with Schema Therapy, Internal Family Systems & Acceptance Commitment Therapy underpinning my practice.

I'm also trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy.

"Jono practices in a warm, welcoming and non-clinical space. He is kind and understanding and uses a well rounded approach to therapy. I would highly recommend his services to anyone who is seeking an experienced therapist."
