About me

Integrative Psychotherapy/Counsellor   

Hi I am Joan,
Over the last 30 years I have worked as an integrative psychotherapy/counsellor and energy medicine coach. I am qualified in many modalities and therapies, including counselling, cognitive behaviour psychotherapist, holistic therapy, nutrition, Reiki, Bioenergetic health coaching and a Bach/Australian flower Practitioner (this involves working with remedies for the emotions, mind, body and spirit). 

I believe, when counselling or coaching my clients, that the whole person, body, mind and spirit needs addressing. I have found through experience that when you look at all aspects of your life, your wellbeing improves. This is one of the reasons I have studied different modalities to integrate into my therapy and adapt them according to my clients’ needs. I feel having a range of therapies to offer helps me to understand clients and enhances the quality of their therapy. 

How I can help you
 I offer a person-centred approach to therapy as I believe that we all have the ability within us to heal and make changes in our lives, with reassurance in a safe and confidential environment. I take a therapeutic approach that is non-judgmental, empathetic, caring and supportive, where you will be heard, valued and understood. I will offer you the time and space to explore your difficulties and the opportunity to discover new ways to understand the meanings of your thoughts, feelings and emotions.

My specialisms/ My experience 
In my 30 years of experience I have worked with many individuals from diverse backgrounds and the difficulties that they have endured. Some of which include, stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, grief, trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar, depression, anger and domestic violence, relationships, and spirituality.

 What is integrative psychotherapy.  
Integrative Psychotherapy combines therapies to suit your individual needs and the issues you are struggling with. The aim of integrative therapy is to help you become more self-understanding and gain insight into the difficulties you are confronted with. It considers your ideas, feelings and behaviours in your life and how past issues may be affecting your present situation. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or discover suitable ways of understanding and managing problems. This therapy usually involves more exploratory and open-ended sessions or longer term therapy and may integrate CBT, mindfulness, psychology, different modalities studied by the therapist. 

CBT Cognitive Behavioural: Therapy helps reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. It focuses on how our thoughts (cognition) influence our feelings and behaviour.  It recognises and addresses negative thoughts that maintain the problems we encounter. The aim of CBT is for the client to have healthier thoughts, feelings and behaviours, working mainly on present issues, but acknowledging they may be related to past experiences also.  This therapy usually requires working with 8-20 sessions depending on the issues.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)  recommends Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Eating Disorders. 

My passion for Mindfulness 
I have a personal interest in mindfulness it has helped me through difficult time in my life. My approach to teaching mindfulness is underpinned by a committed personal practice of mindfulness and meditation.  Part of my professional development is attending mindfulness for profession which has helped me developed compassion for myself and others. Improved my focus and reduced my anxiety. mindfulness is the first tool I would use when feeling stress or rundown.  

 In addition to my therapy.  I work with energy/frequencies, providing a bio-resonance scanning system called NES Health biogenetics.
This system pinpoints all the energy block in the body and mind, helping you delve deeper into your subconscious. 
The assessment from the scan bases its results on interactions with energy fields produced by the body. The exceptional thing about the "body-field" is that it is part of our subconscious state.

This field holds all the information about us, all the stress, memories, traumas, and beliefs – representing the template around which the body continually builds itself and has an extraordinary impact on our physical and emotional wellbeing. These can be explored with the scan, so that therapist can instantly tap into what's going on in the body and emotions. What holding us back at the subconscious level. Seeing not only what needs support but also what is ready to make a positive shift!  Clients are almost universally surprised by the accuracy of what the scan picks up, I have found by discussing these scans with clients it helps open them up to sharing things they were previously holding back. 
Not only does this help to guide my work, but also with a variety of energetic remedies that work at the level of the body-field and can help to release stresses and traumas at this deeper level, helping to get faster and longer-lasting results. 
Part of the scan helps explore core beliefs and the system offers a "Personalised & Imprinted Guided Meditations" that clients can purchase that are completely customised to them based on the results of their scan.
One of my favourite parts of the scan is that it helps you exploring your Life journey, Core beliefs and what’s holding you back from your life’s purpose. 
The Scan also Includes….  

  • A Consultation around your personal needs. 
  •  A Bioenergetic Health Scan for the mind body and spirit, including Trauma
  • A Detailed Report of what your scan reveals.
  • A Personalised meditation taken from your scan. This focuses on your core beliefs and how to change the subconscious mind.
  • Your Emotional Patterns Revealed - Finds out what yours are, and how to work on them. 
    ·      Lifetime Access to your very own Portal which has the following: 
    ·      Body-field Sound healing imprinted Music 
    ·      Podcasts on many different topics.  
    ·      9 screens detailing all aspects of the body, mind and spirit.
    ·      Articles providing health tips
    ·      Films/Documentaries… and much more 
    Being a Therapist, NES Health and Australian Bush Practitioner enables me to help both my family and clients to improve their Health & Wellness.

The Scan can be completed on Zoom,/Skype/Messenger etc. or in my clinic, either by voice detection or finger readings. This is an advantage for people that find it difficult to leave their home or live in a different part of the country.   
if you are able to come to my clinic, I offer you a extra treat. I will use the MiHealth frequency device to kick start your healing process helping pain, harmonisation of your body, mind and spirit. 
I am passionate about helping people, and love to support them on their journey to wellness.

The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice.

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

Science is now proving that 90% of all illness is stress-related. When stressed our energy/frequency change in our bodies and minds. Stress, anxiety, trauma and even our thoughts, are all Frequencies. I have found in my clinic, that more and more people are coming who are suffering with stress, anxiety and trauma. 
Specialising in this area and working with NES Health scans, using remedies and the psychotherapy tools, help move clients into recovery more quickly than therapy alone. In my experience, I notice when my clients’ mental health improves, their physical pain also reduces.

Approach to therapy.
Therapy can be assessed by Face- to-face in my clinic or  Zoom/Skype/Messenger etc. The Scan can be completed by voice detection or finger readings.
My goal is to inspire and help people move forward and live an empowered, joyful and fulfilled life - then everyone benefits - the individual, society and the planet.·
