About me

Email - joyjordan23@hotmail.com or call 07872 554707 - I'm able to offer face to face sessions or telephone sessions.

Hi, my name is Joy. Let me introduce myself and my background as a counsellor.

I am a fully qualified and experienced Person-Centred Counsellor, offering one to one sessions in a comfortable, confidential and safe, therapeutic environment, both face to face and telephone counselling (please do contact me if you have questions about how this will work).

As a counsellor, I have experience working with a wide range of issues, including, anxiety, PTSD, bereavement, self-harm, illness, sexuality, depression, low self-esteem, domestic violence, emotional and sexual abuse, addiction and many other life events.

My aim is to put you at ease as I have a relaxing and warm approach to therapy and understand how difficult it can be to visit therapy for the first time. I approach therapy in a caring and understanding way, whilst working in a professional and informal way.

I create a comfortable and confidential setting where you can feel free to address the difficulties and struggles you may be facing.  I see life as a journey of exploring who you really are, in fact being the best version of yourself, and sometimes we all need a need a little help along the way. Sometimes we put an imaginary wall up, we block our feelings and lose trust in others. We want to feel safe again, to open up and trust without judgement or criticism. In fact we want to share our inner pain but feel unable to let anyone in. I hope to break down those walls with you, as I myself have closed off at times, from who I really am.

What happens in a counselling session?

We can explore those issues that may be causing you stress, and where you have lost your sense of direction or purpose, and how best to move forward with your life.

Face to face counselling appointments are 60 minutes. These hourly appointments maybe 1 hour every week over a 6 week period, or over a longer-term, based on your needs.

The rooms in St Helens and Warrington are welcoming and wheelchair accessible.

I listen in an empathic and understanding way, encouraging you to reconnect and find your own inner resources. I will work with you to make sense of your feelings, thoughts and behavior, and support you as you realise your full potential. It could be that you don’t exactly know what’s troubling you, you just know you feel down and can’t move forward. With the right counsellor, therapy allows you to feel safe in the knowledge that you are being listened to. You can explore your own thoughts, feelings and emotions, and it can help you to put things in perspective, and make positive changes to your life.

What happens next?

I know taking that first step can be difficult, and clients have expressed feelings of self-doubt about making that first contact and said they felt nervous and confused. Please be assured that I will make every effort to ensure you feel at ease on that first contact and throughout the sessions, ensuring they all run smoothly.

If you'd like to work with me, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Confidentiality is very important to me, and I would like to reassure you that your name and contact details are kept totally private.

Getting in touch...

If you have any questions about counselling or would like to know more about how I am able to help you, then I welcome you to get in touch today! Please contact me for a convenient appointment, by phone or text on, 07872 554707 or click here to email me and I will get back to you within 24 hours.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations

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.

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.
