Feedback From Clients & Colleagues


"Seeing Jo on a regular basis is one of the best decisions I made in my life. She provides a compassionate ear; forever understanding, she knows the right mix of just listening when needed and providing guidance when appropriate.

She is able to explain things in a very accessible way, linking with ideas she knew would make sense to me personally. Her wisdom and support has helped me navigate my way through and out of difficulties; so much so that a few years after working with her for the first time, when I needed help on a different issue, I didn’t think twice about coming back to see her again.

Jo is both professional and friendly and, as soon as you enter her room at the Regis building, you know you’re in a safe space. Highly recommended is an understatement."



"Jo came into my life a couple of years ago after a cancer diagnosis, she is so kind and such a good listener. I can talk openly and honestly to her and I do not feel that I am being judged, she genuinely cares. Jo has given me tools to work with to help myself and I genuinely feel that I would not be where I am today without her support. Thank you Jo."



"I gained Jo`s support following diagnosis and treatment for Sarcoma. Her approach, guidance and knowledge was invaluable to get me through a difficult psychological traumatic period. Forever grateful. I would highly recommend Jo for her clinical psychology services."

"I have had the pleasure and privilege of working with Jo for over 20 years, both as a colleague and in a supervisory capacity. Within this time I have witnessed the true extent of her commitment to alleviating the psychological struggles of those in her care. She approaches her work with great professionalism, whilst also showing genuine warmth and humanity to her clients. As such she is able to provide a safe space within the therapeutic relationship to explore and grow emotionally."

"I was introduced to Dr Joanne McVey almost three years ago by one of my colleagues as we had a gap in our health and well-being offering of psychological support for our employees. From the moment that I spoke with Joanne, I warmed to her and felt she would be invaluable to our Company and we have worked together fantastically ever since. I have received extremely positive feedback from employees that have used her service and look forward to continuing to work with Joanne in the future."
