About me

Hello, I'm Joanne a fully qualified and BACP Accredited Counsellor and Supervisor with considerable experience in relationship issues, bereavement, anxiety, depression, self-development and matters effecting young people.  I work with both individuals and couples and also offer the highly effective "Rewind" technique for trauma.

At this time I am happy to offer sessions via Zoom.  I also have a safe, supportive, and confidential space (with convenient off road parking) in which we can meet face-to-face when it is safe to do so and together explore difficulties that you may be experiencing. 

Occasionally we may find ourselves stuck at a crossroad or weighed down with thoughts and feelings that can become confusing and overwhelming. It may be difficult for us to share some of our struggles with our friends and family and so seeking the help of a non-judgemental, empathic counsellor can be very therapeutic and healing. Taking time out to focus on and grow an understanding of our feelings and ourselves can enable us to go forward, free from some of the pain and angst we may be carrying. Getting to know ourselves and be curious as to why we behave as we do can ultimately help us to make clearer decisions, more fulfilling relationships and enable us to move on feeling more optimistic and content with our lives.

I am an Integrative Counsellor, which means I can use skills from several schools of psychotherapy. I am continually training and gaining new skills.

I currently work with Youth Talk and have worked at Bereavement Matters (counselling adults and young people in secondary schools) and Signpost, Watford (an agency for 11 to 25 year olds).

For counselling to be successful the relationship between us is extremely important. In order for us to meet and "get a sense of each other" I am happy to offer an initial 30 minute consultation at a reduced fee of £30.

Please email me at contact@jomarkscounselling.co.uk or phone on 07802881267. If you reach my confidential voicemail please note that I do check my phone regularly and will get back to you ASAP.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
