Joanna Jamieson registered.MBACP
Talking about your problems can be difficult, even with people who love and care about you. Sometimes you don't know where to turn. I am here to offer you support, and to respond to you sensitively, honestly and without judgement.
I am an experienced and professional therapist, working for 18 years as a counsellor in the N.H.S and privately. My career in therapy stemmed from my work in nursing the terminally ill and working with bereaved families.
Since qualifying, I have worked extensively with emotional and relationship problems, including childhood abuse, self esteem and confidence issues.
I have also have 18 years experience, counselling young people between the ages of 11-25, in schools, privately and on line. I also work with families.
I use an Integrative approach in my therapy. This means that I have training in a range of different approaches which form my 'tool kit'. I will help you to find the right way forward for yourself. In particular, I use Transactional Analysis and integrate mindfulness and emotional regulation (D.B.T. skills) into my practice.
I am a registered member of B.A.C.P.
