About me and my therapy practice
Welcome. I'm Joanne. I am a counsellor and psychotherapist with my practice based in Derbyshire. Finding a counsellor can seem a daunting task. My advice would be to find someone you feel comfortable with, but who also meets your needs with their training and experience. Sometimes this is hard to work out from the profile. To help with this I am always happy to offer a free consultation over the phone where we can have a chat about what is happening, I can answer any of your queries, and I can advise on whether I believe I am the right counsellor for you, or help signpost you to someone more suitable. I am also happy to reply to email enquiries.
Let me tell you a bit about my background:
I am an integrative counsellor which means that I have different models of training which allow me to adapt my practice according to your needs.
My main theoretical background is psychodynamic which focuses on what is happening inside the individual, and systemic which focuses on what is happening between individuals. This allows me to work with individuals, and couples, and families.
I have 8 years experience and have spent a lot of time training and working with Relate. I have also done additional training to be able to work with children (from 5 years old) and young people.
I have done extensive periods of work with clients who are living with anxiety and depression, as well as relationships and life transitions, such as bereavement, retirement, menopause, pregnancy, redundancy etc.
I work session by session, so if you are unsure about committing to counselling, you do not need to worry about that. However, some people prefer to book blocks of sessions so that they are secure in knowing what is happening and that is ok too. I am flexible in my approach and will always aim to meet your needs.
If you would like to make a booking, or just want to chat something over, please do get in touch.
