Joanna Clarke (Young Person and Adults Counsellor)
Are you feeling anxious or depressed?
Modern day life can be hard - work pressures, relationship difficulties, feelings of low confidence or self esteem, painful memories or trauma, difficulty sleeping. Experiencing these type of difficult life events can leave us feeling overwhelmed, anxious, upset or that we can't cope with things.
These are normal feelings and it helps to talk about them.
As a counsellor, I work with young people and adults and have experience working in a wide range of therapeutic settings; private practice, universities, schools, and local charities.
My specialisms are supporting people who are experiencing anxiety, low mood, depression, trauma, emotional abuse, low self-esteem, school/exam pressures, self-harm, suicidal ideation, body image, sexuality and identity issues.
I am currently working online via Zoom, Skype or telephone and have available appointments. Give me a call today on 07787125534 for a free confidential consultation and we can discuss how I can best support you.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
