Grief Counselling services in Addingham, Ilkley and surrounding areas

Is unresolved grief preventing you from moving on?

Do you struggle with anger and bitterness as a result of the loss of a loved one?

Perhaps you feel that their death should not have happened. Or maybe the circumstances surrounding how they died trigger feelings of resentment or helplessness.

Does moving on emotionally mean you are leaving them behind?

Does this make you feel guilty, or lost in limbo?

Are you grieving for someone who is still here physically but who is lost to you emotionally and spiritually?

We are very good at being kind and empathetic towards others, but reflect that back on ourselves and we experience a sense of unworthiness.

With over 30 years experience working as a Nurse, mostly in palliative care, I have had the privilege of supporting many Families going through the grieving process. I can listen, empathise and assist you in finding a way forward.

Having a Nursing background combined with experience on Counselling and Coaching I am in the unique position to offer a multi faceted approach to unresolved grief and loss.

Clients often want to understand why a loved one has died, in the first instance. They find this process cathartic as it deepens their understanding of why a loved one passed away, particularly in the event of a sudden or unexpected death.

I think it is helpful for us to talk over the phone first, to see if we can work together. And for that reason I offer a free, no obligation telephone consultation. Rest assured this is simply an opportunity for you to talk in a safe and confidential environment.

This is your journey, and I believe that you will know, just from talking to me, whether or not I can support you in your grief counselling in Addingham and Ilkley.

One Hour Session

An initial one hour session costs £60. However I find that clients benefit more from weekly sessions, delivered over a 6 week period. 

Free Consultation

I offer a free 30 minute (no obligation) telephone consultation, in order to ascertain your current circumstances and provide you with the opportunity to ask questions about the services I offer and how I may be able to support you.

Targeted Packages

A bespoke package can be tailored to your individual needs, designed to cover a period of 6 weeks. This is entirely flexible, we can navigate what is best for you at our first meeting.

I’m Jo Onions –

I am a Mum of 3 and a Registered General Nurse with over 30 years experience in the field of palliative care, dementia care and neurological disorders.

Throughout my profession I have counselled and supported those and their loved ones going through traumatic chapters in their lives, involving diagnoses of terminal conditions, progressive illnesses and bereavement.

I have struggled with my own mental health battles, an often painful journey which has ultimately led me to where I am today.

I am now in the unique position to offer Coaching, well-being and counselling services. My background in healthcare combined with my own personal journey allows me to support, guide and empathise in equal measure.

Whatever your current circumstances, we can tailor a package that best suits your needs and future direction. You can be assured that we will work together, in a safe environment without judgement and at your pace. Discretion and confidentiality are paramount to the relationship that we will build, founded on trust and mutual respect. 

Together we can navigate the difficulties you are facing and pave the way for a more colourful life journey.

Service and Support

Services are provided in the privacy of my home, in a safe and welcoming environment. 

Alternatively if you prefer the familiarity and security of your own home I can visit you. 

I also deliver walking therapy. A combination of a gentle stroll in the local countryside with the benefit of counselling expertise- the ideal way to release endorphins and de stress in a neutral environment.


We will address the triggers behind your anxiety and establish coping mechanisms that you can implement step by step.


Together we will look for practical ways to support you, whilst incorporating Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques. to decipher how your thoughts and feelings are affecting your day to day life.

Lack of Motivation

Self sabotage and loss of perspective both impact on motivation. We can address these issues and discuss any life changes which are holding you back, in order to take the first steps in moving forward.


If you have recently suffered the devastating loss of a loved one, or are finding a historical bereavement difficult to understand I can help to guide you on your journey. This is a client driven session, where I will endeavour to support you during this distressing chapter of your life. 

Dementia & Alzheimers

These sessions are designed to support Family members and Partners, where a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia. An often difficult and harrowing journey to navigate, I can provide practical and emotional support to help you. 


After the loss of my mother Jo was my rock and she gave me the strength to move forward both emotionally and physically. Every one who meets her commented on the warm and emotional strengths she radiates. Jo is one of the most sincere and approachable human beings you could have the privilege to be part of your world.

Jo has been a great support helping me cope when I am feeling overwhelmed caring for a relative living with dementia. Jo is a very patient caring and practical person and will be an excellent support to anyone struggling in life.
Sue W
Dementia is such a cruel disease, we felt like we had lost mum long before she died. Jo was with us in the months leading up to her death and to support us afterwards.  Her understanding, kindness, compassion was second to none. She helped us see Mum's death through different eyes and she knew exactly what to say to help us. We would not hesitate to recommend Jo, she is an Angel.
