About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I'm Joanna. I am a qualified counsellor working in private practice at my home in Somerset. Before that I completed a successful placement within an NHS setting, and completed 5 years of training.

Prior work experience includes a range of educational and housing posts, often with a support/mentoring element.

During my training I set up and managed a counselling team within a young people's charity.

I am a warm and caring counsellor and can offer you a safe space to talk through the challenges you are currently facing and the struggles you may be dealing with at this time. Over the years clients have come to me with all kinds of issues and sometimes worry that it isn't important enough for counselling - I generally say that if it feels important to them, then it's important enough for counselling.

Sometimes things can feel very tricky and we may feel that situations are hopeless, but working with a counsellor can be positive as it allows us to work through issues in a safe non-judgemental space at a pace that suits us. I am able to walk alongside you on your journey.

Sometimes taking that initial step can feel really hard, but taking the smallest step can be the start of a personal journey of change and growth.

I have both personal and professional experience of working with people on the autistic spectrum, including those with Asperger's.

I have experienced a life changing health situation, which I believe gives me added insight into those circumstances.

I am a Christian and also trained in spiritual accompaniment.
