Joanne Calcott Integrative Counsellor BA(Hons) Registered Accredited MBACP
You have taken the first step, that is often the hardest but most important. Finding a therapist is a good place to start. Recognising the need for something to change can be difficult. Reaching out and starting to talk about what may be causing you turmoil, impacting on your day to day and stopping you moving forward is simply one of the hardest things to do.
My name is Joanne and I am an Integrative Accredited Counsellor and Counsellor Supervisor. I provide weekly sessions to help you explore what is troubling you, explore relationships, recover, regenerate and help you to gain a deeper understanding of you, your relationship and how you navigate through life. Working with couples and individuals, by providing an opportunity to work through anything that might be troubling you, any difficulties you may be facing or experiences you have had that are impacting on you. Helping you to gain a better understanding of your patterns, thoughts and feelings which helps you to decide what you want for you.
I have a wide range of experience, my aim is to work collaboratively with you to make sense of your world and what is causing you any anxiety and stress. Therapy provides an opportunity to explore thoughts, feelings and allows us to unpick our behaviours and actions. Sometimes people encounter difficulties in life that they are not able to share with someone they know, this can be overwhelming. Leaving us with difficulty uncontrollable thoughts and feelings which can be triggered by any number of life experiences such as:
- low self esteem/confidence/worth/concept
- self harm
- eating disorders
- family issues
- social anxiety
- relationship breakdowns
Many people seek counselling as they may be feeling overwhelmed or need someone outside of their family/friends to talk to. People access counselling for a variety of reasons. Sometimes things seem unmanageable, issues have built up or you may want to unravel/understand thoughts and feelings that you have had for a long time.
I also provide supervision for qualified Counsellors and student counsellors.
