About me

Hello I am Joanna and I am a fully qualified Counsellor and lecturer of Couselling.

Helping you with anxiety .

I have experience in helping people with loss and bereavement and I aim to provide one to one bereavement care to help individuals understand and share their grief. I offer a space to find a way to manage grief where a future means living and remembering their lost loved one in a way that is healthy and positive.

I have experience in working with individuals whereby anxiety and depression have become part of their lives. Helping them to cope with every day life.

I specialise incomplex situations such as self -injury, whereby shame and guilt may envelop them. Including children and adolescents.

I work with women and men experiencing the court system and divorce and the feelings associated with this.

I can offer support to those with recent bereavement or unresolved loss from years ago.

I offer relational therapy to make sense of what is happening and provide opportunities for change.

"I work by providing a space to talk and listen without judgement. The way I work means that you will find a down to earth person to meet with you in your toughest moments"

Often people seek counselling because they feel unable to cope and feel low, isolated and not like 'their old self', worried or feel lost. Counselling can and does help with these feelings.

My confidential, discreet counselling service offers access to therapy quickly. You can contact me by text, mobile or email and I will be happy to talk through with you the next step.
