Hello, my name is Joanna. I am a qualified and BACP registered person-centred counsellor and therapist. I work face-to-face with adults of all ages and young people from my counselling studio in Wymondham.
My own professional experience, along with research shows the quality of the relationship between you and your therapist is key towards sharing and working through things that may be causing you distress, difficulty or worry. Doing this inside a safe, trusting, non-judgemental and genuine relationship can enable you to feel truly heard and listened to (maybe for the first time). In doing this people are able to move towards self-acceptance, growth and the life they would like to live.
With this in mind please feel free to make contact with me via e-mail, text, call or WhatsApp message for an initial, no obligation conversation to see if together we feel that I, and my way of working, may be a good fit for you.
I am a person-centred counsellor and I work in a way which is predominantly non-directive. What is most important to me is that I can offer you a space/relationship that is safe, confidential, honest and open where you will feel able to bring whatever is troubling you without being met with any judgement. I believe that the counsellor is not the expert giving advice of how to 'fix' you. Rather that through offering you the space and time to be heard, at your own pace, with true understanding and real empathy you can be provided a genuine opportunity for growth and change.
I welcome any enquiries, questions and look forward to meeting you if you feel you wish to proceed.

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.

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).
