Joanne Demirkazik Senior therapist. MBACP (accred) Individual and Couples work
Hello. My name is Joanne. Welcome to my profile. I offer a warm, caring and professional service in a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment. I have a deep commitment to the work I do and to helping people come through difficulties and create better and more meaningful lives.
Sometimes you might feel that life is not working out the way you hoped it would, or that you are stuck in a way of living that is causing you stress and unhappiness. I will help you talk through what is troubling you and help enable you to make the changes you would like. Therapists are trained to listen in an accepting, understanding and supportive way, helping you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe environment. I believe we all have the capacity for change and through talking, can identify patterns of behaviour which may prevent us from living a more fulfilling life.
I am an experienced and fully qualified BACP Accredited Counsellor. I have worked for over the past 20 years in a wide range of settings such as, Occupational Health, Education, the NHS and I run a thriving Private Practice on a residential street near the centre of Beverley.
My training is in a Humanistic Integrative approach. The focus here being in the relationship formed between Counsellor and Client. Seeking a counsellor is a very personal choice and it will help to find someone who you feel comfortable with and whom you feel understands your thoughts and feelings.
The type of issues clients come to Counselling for are:-
Depression, Anxiety, General Anxiety Disorder, Stress, Phobias, Trauma, feeling sad, Bereavement, Eating Disorders, Relationship issues and other emotional distress.
Relationships are an essential part of our lives. Close relationships can be very fulfilling, however they can also be difficult to maintain. I have experience in working with couples from different backgrounds. A couples therapist does not take sides and remains neutral. Therapy will help you to identify and understand behavioural patterns by encouraging fair and balanced communication between both partners.
I offer a free telephone consultation where we can discuss therapy and the best route forward for you. Concessions are offered for the first session. Please ask.
I also offer Supervision.
Free and unlimited parking is available.
