About me

Hi my name is Joanne. I offer a space in which I will listen, empathise, encourage and empower individuals.

My aim during sessions is not to advise but to offer help to individuals to understand themselves better and find their own coping strategies.

Currently due to Covid-19 restrictions I am offering sessions over the phone or via Zoom.

My primary beliefs stem from Person Centred counselling. I offer unconditional positive regard which is accepting and valuing you as a person. I offer congruence, being honest and transparent and offer a empathic understanding of your world and your issues.

During our first session together, we will look at your expectations of counselling and how best to work together to explore problems to enable you to live a more fulfilling life with reduced stress and anxieties. The therapy would be tailored to meet your specific needs to achieve a healthy future. Our first session would include discussing the reasons that brought you to seek counselling and if counselling is the right service for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Therapist and Supervisor with over 8 years experience.

I am a registered member of the BACP and I adhere to their ethical framework for good practice.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
