About me and my therapy practice
I am currently offering telephone appointments only due to the coronavirus outbreak. The initial consultation is free which allows you to try it out with no obligation. Appointment length and cost is then negotiable.
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 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 booking far in advance.
If you would like to make a booking, or just want to chat something over, please do get in touch.
