Joanne Anderson MBACP, Dip Coun, Cert CBT (Accred)
I am a fully qualified and accredited counsellor. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I practice in the Wilmslow area of Cheshire which is easily accessible from Altrincham, Wilmslow, Alderley Edge, Hale, the M56 and South Manchester. Free parking is available at both sites.
In the counselling room I work with couples, individuals and young people in an integrative way which simply means that I am able to use various styles of counselling. This will help to provide the best type of counselling that suits you and your individual requirement and needs. I offer both short and long term counselling.
I offer a caring, safe and non judgemental environment to dicuss any issues where you are listened to.
I will work with you to help you to explore and challenge your problems and then assist you to look for solutions to bring about the positive changes and wellbeing that you are looking for in your life.
I understand it can be difficult to make initial contact. I assure you that I will try to make this as easy as possible. Therefore, I am happy to talk to you via email or telephone about any concerns regarding counselling prior to booking an appointment.
