Joy Dalton MBACP (Accred), (FdA) Counselling, BA (Hons)
With warm and genuine nature and a person-centred approach underpinning my work, I offer counselling sessions to help every individual to find the answers that are right for them, in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental way.
Coming from a professional holistic therapy background, counselling became a natural step for me to begin a new journey on how to help people to regain a state of well-being and a sense of peace.
Having experience of working both privately and within the Primary Care sector, I have worked in many areas of psychological distress, such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, trauma, domestic violence and sexual abuse. I work in an integrative way which means that each clients' needs are met as individually and uniquely as they are themselves, with approaches often combined to help clients find their answers to difficulties they may be experiencing in their life at the moment. I also work closely with Students who are beginning their journey of Counselling training, offering personal therapy to prepare them to begin working with their own Clients and discover who their core self is and why!
The process of change can be challenging as individuals learn more about themselves, what truly hurts and why, but with the support of the therapeutic relationship that counselling offers, this change becomes a gift and trust in the 'self' becomes stronger.
