Joanne Laight (Dip.Couns. BACP Certificate of Proficiency)
24 Orchard Close
My name is Jo and I am a very experienced, fully qualified counsellor based near the Wyre Forest. I have lots of personal life experiences and understand that life takes twists and turns and has a multitude of highs and lows. Therefore, I have realised how important it is for you, as the client, to know that you are working in a safe and confidential environment.
I qualified in 2003. I have a Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I work from a Person Centred perspective, however, I will use alternative approaches for the benefit of the client. I have volunteered at schools, colleges, local hospice and local bereavement organisations. These places have helped me realise that things change, life changes and we also change, and that discovering and changing throughout our life is good.
I am a friendly warm person with experience working with bereavement, anxiety, self confidence, abuse, self belief, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression and more.
I have an understanding of how difficult life events can be to cope with, that's why I trained as a counsellor to help others see that life does change and we can also change how we look at life and accept these changes and move forward with hope for the future.
My counselling sessions are at my home in the lounge which is a comfortable and safe place.
Counselling is an ideal opportunity to discuss any worries or issues you have and know that the counsellor is listening to you. That the relationship with the counsellor is an honest and warm relationship where you are accepted and respected and where you can be yourself and learn more about what you want from your life.
The initial 30 minute assessment is free, where I can answer any questions you have and a good opportunity for you to let me know what you are requiring from counselling.
Each session is for 1 hour and frequency will be negotiated between us.
I can be contacted by email or my mobile number to which I will respond within 24 hours.
