About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I am Joanne. 

I am an Integrative Counsellor, meaning  'no single approach fits all' just like 'we are all unique' and have  been brought up with our own values and beliefs to feel accepted just how we are.

I have been working as a counsellor for over fifteen years with young people, and adults.

My experience as a Counsellor has been in schools both primary and Secondary education and for services in and around Kent.

As an integrative Counsellor, I believe that there is not one approach that will help one person in all situations,  this is why I work holistically using elements of different approaches to help you to explore and cope with your problems to hopefully gain a better understanding of self and others.

I can listen, understand, not judge, not assume and remain curious in a confidential environment. 

We can focus on your thoughts, feelings and behavior's 

As two people in the room,  we can try to make sense of what is going on.

I believe effective counselling comes from the foundations of a therapeutic relationship based on trust, safety and feeling heard.

Practice description

Are you looking to make changes in your life?

Find your purpose ?

Do you wake up feeling anxious or low, are you going through a stressful period in your life, where you would just like a space to feel heard and listened to in a non judgmental way?

Being free to speak and not feel like you are all alone, can sometimes just be what you need to make sense of your thoughts.

We often fear judgement or fear of upsetting the other.

I provide a personal space for you to work through these challenges. 

My own life journey brings me to a place of authenticity and growth and I would like you to feel this too... with yourself and in your relationships.

I can provide the tools and techniques that you may need at this time to move forward.
