***Now offering individual therapy in Spinningfields Manchester City Centre, Sale, and Saddleworth***
My name is Joanne, pleased to meet you. I believe that everyone should have the ability to access therapeutic counselling in order to feel content in their lives. Most people will struggle with one or more things at some point, and may feel 'stuck in a rut', lacking direction, or feeling out of control of their emotions.
My job is to offer a non judgemental, neutral, and supportive ear to you, allowing you that all important offloading space which so many of us lack; but benefit from enormously. With my support and guidance, we will:
- Collaboratively talk through what is affecting you
- Allow you space and time to process and understand it
- Identify how we can make realistic changes in your life to support your therapeutic journey
My qualification as an integrative counsellor means that I am trained in multiple modalities, and allows me to provide a totally individual and bespoke service for you, using the theory and techniques I believe are most appropriate and relevant to you. I am an accredited member of the BACP, am supported by their ethical framework, and work in the strictest confidence.
Resilience, Confidence and Self- Esteem:-
My service focuses on the idea that everyone has the right to feel OK, and sometimes low confidence and low self esteem can be a huge barrier to this, whether it is from an external force, or from within. Your change in feelings may have developed recently, or may have been building up for some time- this is the first step to committing to a new, happier, and more content you.
I am experienced working with children and young people in schools and am happy to take clients within this age range.
I offer a slightly different thread to my service in the form of solution focussed therapy. This is goal orientated, therapeutically working short term towards achieving something specific, or making that all important change in your life.
I am happy to offer skype/facetime sessions to clients with prior arrangement when appropriate. An initial face to face consultation is still essential.
If you feel that i can help you, or have any questions, feel free to send me a text and I will call you back to discuss options at a convenient time.
