Joy Jordan MBACP, dip counsellor.
Hi, my name is Joy.
Let me introduce myself and my background as a counsellor.
I am a fully qualified and experienced Person Centred Counsellor, offering one to one sessions in a comfortable, confidential and safe, therapeutic environment. I aim to put you at ease and have a relaxing and warm approach to therapy as I understand how difficult it can be to visit therapy for the first time. I approach therapy in a caring and understanding way, whilst working in a professional and informal way.
I aim to create a warm setting where you can feel free to address the difficulties you may be facing, and those that may come up during the counselling sessions.
I offer face to face counselling appointments (60 minutes) These hourly appointments may be 1 hour every week over a 6 week period, or over a longer term based on your needs.
The rooms are welcoming and accessible therapy rooms in St Helens and Northwich
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) where I strive to follow their ethics and guidelines, and as part of my practise I have regular supervision.
What I offer
I offer Counselling in a private and confidential setting, in a supportive way, offering a warm, confidential and non-judgemental approach. We can explore issues that may be causing you stress, and where you have lost your sense of direction or purpose.
I listen in an empathic and understanding way, encouraging you to reconnect and find your own inner resources. I will work with you to make sense of your feelings, thoughts and behaviour, and support you as you realise your full potential. It could be that you don’t exactly know what’s troubling you, you just know you feel down and can’t move forward. With the right counsellor, therapy allows you to feel safe in the knowledge that you are being listened to. You can explore your own thoughts, feelings and emotions, and it can help you to put things in perspective, and make positive changes to your life.
The next step
I know taking that first step can be difficult, and clients have expressed feelings of self-doubt about making that first contact, and said they felt nervous and confused. Please be assured that I will make every effort to ensure you feel at ease on that first contact and throughout the sessions, ensuring they all run smoothly.
If you feel you would like to work with me, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Confidentiality is very important to me, and I would like to reassure you that your name and contact details are kept totally private.
Please contact me for a convenient appointment, by phone or text on, 07872 554707 or email me and I will get back to you within 24 hours.
