When life feels like an uphill struggle, how about a place to take some time out?
My name is Joan and I'am an experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist with 20 years of practical experience. I've helped individuals, couples and families,children and people in later stages of life, exploring together their thoughts and feelings, and finding their own right path ahead.
I am an Accredited member of the BACP(British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) a member of the ACC (Association for Christian Counselling) and an accredited member of the National Counselling Society.
I work integratively using several approaches e.g. psychodynamic, person centered, self psychology, intercultural, CBT. and TIR (Traumatic Incident Reduction).
