Josephine Aligwekwe aka Jojo

Josephine fondly called JoJo, is a compassionate, caring, patient person who has always had an interest in people.  That’s why I started my career early on as a trainer. I transitioned into counselling because I really enjoy talking with people about relationships, life issues, a knack for listening, helping identify blocks that’s keeping them from their best self and removing those challenges. 


I started Talktojojo1st because I wanted to do something different but still be able to harness the experiences gained in my 25+ years across various disciplines.My practice reflects my unique people skills and insights with an emphasis on evidence-based treatments for youths and adults with relationship-related concerns, domestic abuse, anxiety, depression, anger issues, grief & loss, etc. Over the years I have been privileged to work with clients from diverse culture, ethnicity, gender orientations between 11 to 70 years in age. The most rewarding aspect is clients realising that the resources required to overcome their issues  is within them, becoming whom they want to be and empowered to embrace themselves.

I have been an integrative Counsellor for more than 6 years and absolutely love what I do. My services are currently virtual and onsite in Bedford to ensure convenience and easy accessibility. Clients experience a safe, confidential space to share their story and talk about whatever is on their mind, at their pace . I believe that building a therapeutic relationship based on trust, non-judgement and empathy is foremost. As an Integrative Counsellor, I believe in a wholistic approach encompassing psychological, social, emotional and spiritual while drawing  on a wide range of approaches to tailor sessions uniquely to a client. 

The field of Psychotherapy is constantly evolving, I focus on keeping up with the latest research through reading and trainings. I am proud to say I am a lifelong learner and see the benefits in my therapy sessions. I currently train and guest lecture at Pan African University on Emotional Intelligence, Communication and Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

Each one of us can be fulfilled in our lives. Are you ready to explore what is getting in your way? Reach out now. Let's journey together.
