Joanne Walker BA (Hons) MNCS
At times we can all struggle with our circumstances, relationships and health. This may result in feeling lonely, confused and overwhelmed. Traumas past and present negatively impact upon our quality of life and coping mechanisms can fail or become unhelpful.
Counselling allows some time and space to shine a light on your issues and it can provide insight and clarity. It is an opportunity for honest open communication, without the fear of judgement and repercussions. This supported self-exploration tends to aid growth and healing, ultimately resulting in change and acceptance.
I am an Integrative Graduate Counsellor, with past experience in mental health and substance misuse settings. I have also been a mentor for care leavers. Alongside private practice, I am currently counselling for a domestic abuse organization and in a general practice charity. I can offer brief, short-term and open-ended counselling.
If you feel that a collaborative and understanding therapeutic relationship could benefit you, then please get in touch for a low cost, no obligation initial assessment. We can discuss your situation, expectations and any aims and goals you may have.
