About me and my therapy practice
Are you feeling down, depressed or hopeless?
Hi, my name is Joanne. I am a highly qualified therapist with 8 years experience, who listens, empathises with, encourages, and helps to empower individuals. I am a registered member of the BACP and I adhere to their ethical framework for good practice as a therapist. My aim during sessions is not to advise but to offer help to individuals to understand themselves better and find their own coping strategies.
Currently due to Covid-19 restrictions I am offering sessions over the phone or online in a confidential setting. Once restrictions are lifted, we can continue via phone or online, and I will also offer face to face sessions in a quiet, comfortable, relaxed setting if you would prefer.
My primary beliefs stem from Person Centred counselling. I offer unconditional positive regard which is accepting and valuing you as a person. I offer congruence, being honest and transparent and an empathic understanding of your world and your issues.
My first session
During our first session together, we will look at your expectations of counselling and how best to work together to explore problems to enable you to live a more fulfilling life with reduced stress and anxieties.
The therapy would be tailored to meet your specific needs to achieve a healthy future. Our first session would include discussing the reasons that brought you to seek counselling and if counselling is the right service for you.
