Joanne is experienced offering therapeutic counselling to teenagers and young adults who have issues with panic attacks and anxiety through to depression and suicidal thoughts. This is what Joanne does, in her own words:

About my work

My belief in the benefits of talking therapies or counselling was realised after the experience I gained as a Samaritan volunteer. It was evident that peoples’ mood and distress improved in quite a significantly short space of time when they were listened to in a confidential setting, by someone who was empathetic and didn’t judge them or try and give advice.

My main approach is Person Centred, where I take my lead from you and your individual needs. You can choose the topic of discussion as you wish or I can help or I can help you focus on problem areas. Other models can be integrated into the session which may help the healing process such as Solution Focus, Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy skills (CBT), and Mindfulness.
