About me

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).

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
