Jo Ablett – Founder of Into Blue & Trainer in Expressive Therapies – Certificate Courses

Psychotherapist, Professional Supervisor, Victorian Trainer for ETIA, Educator, Artist

“My practice is founded on a life long passion to set the scene for children, teenagers and adults to tap into their potential; take charge of their lives and establish belief in themselves. Through my work with young people and adults I am constantly reminded of the innate ability that everyone has for healing.”

I am currently the trainer for Victoria, for the Expressive Therapies Institute of Australia and enjoy sharing my passion for this approach to counselling with my trainees. With 30 years’ experience in facilitating personal development and meditation for people of all ages I continue to work with individuals, and groups. The foundation of my work is Expressive Therapies – a blend of personal growth, counselling and psychotherapy methods – which support emotional healing, personal wellbeing and skill development.

It is my sincere intention to treat you with care, respect, kindness and acceptance whilst maintaining absolute confidentiality.
