Joanne Anderson MBACP, Dip Coun, Cert CBT (Accred)
I am a qualified and accredited counsellor. I am also a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I practice in the Wilmslow area of Cheshire which is easily accessible from the M56 and South Manchester. Free parking is available.
In the counselling room I work with couples, individuals and young people in an integrative way which simply means that I am able to use various styles of counselling. This will help to provide the best type of counselling that suits you and your own requirements, needs and goals. I offer both short and long term counselling.
We will work together in a caring, safe and non judgemental environment to dicuss any issues where you are really listened to.
I will work with you to help you to explore and challenge the difficulties you are experiencing and then we can help you look and find the solutions to bring about the positive changes and wellbeing that you are wanting for in your life.
I understand it can be difficult to make initial contact. I will try to make this as easy as possible. Therefore, I am happy to initially talk to you free via email or telephone about any concerns that you may have regarding counselling.
