About me

My name is Joanne Calvert.  I am an Integrative Psychotherapist and I work in Holmfirth in West Yorkshire.

I work with all sorts of people for all sorts of reasons, such as anxiety, bereavement, generalised anxiety disorder, relationship issues, panic disorder, depression, stress or maybe because someone is just feeling sad.

I endeavour to provide a welcoming and safe environment in which to talk.  My work is based on us building a trusting relationship and I provide a non judgemental space for you to be able to come and talk to me and look at what is going on for you.

Our first meeting:

Usually we would arrange an initial meeting of up to an hour so we can introduce ourselves and talk about your needs and what I have to offer.  It's an opportunity for us to talk a little about what you are looking for from therapy, or just to talk about what is happening for you if you are not really that clear about what you want.  There is no obligation to meet again if you don't want to.

Working together:

If we decide we are going to work together we would meet weekly for an hour.  Session length and frequency can change however I find it is best to establish a regular meeting pattern initially.  There is no set format for sessions, they are your sessions and we will work together to find a way of working that is right for you.  This may involve just talking but can also involve drawing, painting, writing or other creative ways of expressing yourself if this is helpful for you.

What to do next:

Please give me a call or drop me an email to arrange a meeting.  If you have questions to ask prior to arranging a meeting that is fine, just let me know and I will do my best to answer.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained with the Welsh Psychotherapy Partnership in Cardiff and I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy. I am accredited with the the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy). I also hold a Certificate in Counselling.

I have completed ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy) training with ACT Mindfully.

In addition to working as a therapist I work at Huddersfield University as a Student Advisor.  Prior to this I worked in training and human resources.

        Fees

        My fee for the first session is £15. Thereafter I charge £40 per session.

        Sessions are 1 hour long.  Longer length sessions can be discussed and an alternative fee agreed.

        Further information

        If accessing therapy outside your own home is a problem for you, I am happy to discuss whether meeting in your home would be appropriate.  Things to consider are privacy, travel distance and costs and whether meeting at your home is helpful for your therapy. Please feel free to ask me about this.
