Joanne Fletcher MBACP (reg)
Life changes! Understanding the next step or how to proceed, initially can be one of the most difficult. Not knowing where to turn, what to do or even if tomorrow is going to happen! And if it does, how am I going to cope?
At Being Yew, I offer a confidential space where you can speak openly, knowing that you are heard and understood for what you are experiencing. Together, you can choose how you respond and enable yourself.
As a person-centred therapist, I believe you have the skills and abilities to resolve what is causing your distress. Though at this point you may be unsure how to access what this means for you. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment where this can happen.
I offer a free, fifteen initial telephone contact where we can discuss what's needed and if, we are right for each other.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified and registered counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, with an Additional Diploma in Psycho-therapeutic Counselling and a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. Supporting this, is a post graduate certificate in Coaching and Mentoring. I've been working as a counsellor for 5 years and within coaching and mentoring for over fifteen years, both in educational settings and as a counsellor with a Staff Counselling and Support Service within the NHS and a national Mental Health charity.
My working life includes lecturing, community awareness and challenges that face young people and adults. Alongside this, I am a Usui Reiki practitioner.
I also have a Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and am trained in Creative Expression in Person-Centred therapy, which I offer as an approach to clients.
Creativity offers a different way of exploring what is troubling you and not about creating the perfect painting. It provides a way of speaking when words are difficult to find or say.
