Helping parents feel confident, compassionate & connected

Hello! I’m Dr Jo Mueller, and I’m a Clinical Psychologist. I specialise in working with parents to help you feel calmer and more confident in your parenting, more connected to your child, and more understanding of yourself.


There are so many reasons why being a parent is really hard at the moment. As a mum of two myself, I can relate - and I can help.


Who can I help?

I’ve been privileged to work with diverse mums, dads, and children around the world for the last 15 years. This experience has taught me that supporting parents is the best possible way to help everyone in the family.


I also know the highs and lows of parenthood first-hand. In a sea of parenting and mental health advice, what parents need is high quality, trustworthy support. I bring a wealth of personal and professional experience to my work, helping me to find the right approach for you, whatever goal or dilemma you bring. 

Looking for practical parenting advice?

From practical parenting ideas to supporting your child’s emotional and behavioural health, I help with all kinds of parenting dilemmas, drawing on the best available psychological theory and evidence. I am also experienced in working in a neuroaffirmative way with neurodivergent parents and children 

(e.g. autism, ADHD, and learning disabilities or difficulties).

Feeling stressed, overwhelmed or guilty?

Often, parents I work with are feeling stressed, overwhelmed and guilty; they might be struggling with not feeling good enough, feeling frustrated, or adjusting to a change in identity. Maybe you are feeling anxious, low in mood, struggling with another aspect of your mental health or wondering about neurodivergence. These feelings are common, but you don't have to cope alone - I can help.

Are past experiences impacting your parenting?

Sometimes, parents find that past experiences (perhaps from their own childhood, or from a difficult birth, for example) are impacting on their current parenting in ways that they would like to change. Parents often want to make sure they don't pass on past traumas or anxieties to their child, but aren't sure how. You might simply want to parent in a different way to your own parents, but find yourself accidentally repeating patterns. If this is you, I can help you find a positive path forwards.


I'm so glad you're here.

I understand that when you start to look for support as a parent, you may worry that you’re somehow over-reacting, or feel you “should” be able to manage on your own. It’s amazing how comfortable we are seeking help in other areas of our lives, but when it comes to our parenting and well-being, we put pressure on ourselves to cope alone.


I hope to normalise reaching out during this time in our lives, prioritising arguably the two most important things in our lives: our children and our own mental health.

How can I help you?

I know that the most important thing when making the leap to contact a psychologist is to find someone who you can connect with. I’m an open and practical therapist, bringing a warm, human approach to our sessions.

A collaborative, informed approach is central to my work. We will decide together what we are working on and why, and we will carefully track progress so you can be confident that our sessions are helping you move forward.


All my sessions are held online via Zoom.  For your peace of mind, I offer a free 15 minute initial consultation, so we can find out if we are a good match.

Whatever difficulty or dilemma you are facing, my aim is to help you to feel calmer and more confident as a parent, and to nurture your connection with your child

Jo offered an incredibly warm, relatable and non-judgemental space. She worked gently with my feelings of shame around the parenting I was less than proud of, and her compassionate approach helped me to find ways to be kinder to myself. 

I came away with both practical solutions and a renewed awareness of caring for myself in order to better care for my children.
