Hi, I’m Joanne I’m a Humanistic Counsellor which I counsel Adults. I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy(BACP). Although my theoretical influence is mainly based on person-centred I would work integrative depending on clients needs. I offer a safe space for you which would enable you to explore your issues, concerns, feelings and emotions in a non-judgmental and safe environment. I would offer both short term or long term therapy depending on your needs.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me by email, call or text whichever you prefer. I will get in touch with you and have an informal chat and take it from there.

Registered Member BACP
I have worked within the Mental Health Sector for 8 years. Within my past work experiences I have worked with issues such as severe anxiety, depression, self-harm, suicide, bi-polar, eating disorders, schizophrenia, paranoia, knife crime, drug and substance misuse, loss & grief and abuse.
While training as a Counsellor I trained within Police Scotland Violence Reduction Unit, I also trained within The Wise Group based in Paisley which I stayed on for a while after reaching my qualification. I am experienced in working with all of the issues and concerns above, and working within the NHS I still work with most of these issues and concerns on a daily basis which enables me to become an excellent listener and excellent communicator and build professional relationships and this enables me to keep my knowledge and skills up to date coinciding with my Counselling work.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
