About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I'm Joanne and I am a fully qualified and BACP Accredited Counsellor and Supervisor working  with individuals and couples.

At the present time I am offering counselling via Zoom.  Once it is safe for us to meet face-to-face I also have a safe, supportive, and confidential space (with convenient off road parking) in my home in St Albans. 

Sometimes we can find ourselves stuck at a crossroad or weighed down with thoughts and feelings that can become confusing and overwhelming. It may be difficult for us to share some of our struggles with our friends and family and so seeking the help of a non-judgemental, empathic counsellor can be very therapeutic. 

I am an Integrative Counsellor, which means I use skills from several schools of psychotherapy.  Along side my private practice I am employed as a Counsellor at Youth Talk (counselling service for young people) and have previously worked at Bereavement Matters.  I have extensive experience working with relationships.  I am continually training and gaining new skills.

Please email me at contact@jomarkscounselling.co.uk or telephone on 07802881267. If you reach my confidential voicemail please note that I do check my phone regularly and will get back to you ASAP.

My first session

For counselling to be successful the relationship between us is extremely important. In order for us to meet and get a sense of each other I am happy to offer an initial 30 minute consultation at a reduced rate of £30. During this time we can discuss your needs and see if we feel it would be helpful for us to work together. If we decide to go forward then we will contract for an initial six weeks.

About me and my therapy practice

I aim to bring nurturing, supportive and empathic qualities to my role as Supervisor and offer integrative supervision to students, newly qualified and experienced counsellors working in and setting up a private practice.  I have considerable experience working in areas that affect young people, bereavement/loss, anxiety, low self-esteem, depression and relationship issues.   I have experience of working with both individuals and couples.  My approach is based mainly on psychodynamic, person centered and transpersonal theories and I work creatively weaving in CBT, mindfulness and guided-visualisation techniques.

Basing my supervision practice on the respected theory of Hawkins & Shohet, using the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice and having supervision of supervision,  I aim to work with my supervisee's individual needs in order to support them with their client work, continued personal development and self-care.

I hold the Level 6 Certificate in Therapeutic Counselling Supervision (CPCAB) Qualification.


My first session

I offer a 30 minute first session (at a reduced rate) so we can meet and get a sense of eachother.  Hopefully by the end of this first session we will have decided whether the way I work will be useful for you and if we decide to go ahead we will form a contract for an initial six weeks.  I may also be able to help refer you if we feel that we are not a good fit.
