About Me

Hi, I’m Joanne, a fully qualified Psychotherapist and hypnotherapist and have studied EFT to utilise as a tool within my counselling practice.

My Ethos, when it comes to Therapy, is that One Size Doesn’t Fit All!

In my pursuit to help my clients with their happiness, personal development, and growth I have studied, and continue to absorb, myriad practices to ensure I tailor therapy to them, working openly and honestly to ensure effective and lasting change.

Through experience I have found that working with the client to find their best way to move forward and being with them on their journey has ensured life changing, long term results. I enable clients to build their own toolkit of skills for them to support their development and happiness once therapy has ended.

Benefits of multiple therapies

There are many reasons to work with an integrative counsellor like me, rather than one that only uses one modality (or style). These are just a few reasons:

  • Flexibility I am trained and experienced in a variety of different therapeutic approaches, which gives the flexibility to tailor your treatment to your individual needs. This can be especially beneficial for clients who are struggling with complex or multifaceted issues.
  • More effective Studies have shown that integrative therapy can be more effective than traditional therapy for a variety of mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. This is likely due to the fact that integrative therapy addresses the whole person, not just the symptoms of their condition.
  • More personal I am able to create a more personalised treatment plan for each client, which can help to build a stronger therapeutic relationship. This can be especially important for clients who have had negative experiences with therapy in the past.
  • Holistic approach Integrative therapy takes a holistic approach to mental health by considering the interconnectedness of the mind, body, and spirit. This approach helps to address the underlying issues that may be contributing to mental health challenges.
  • Trauma healing Somatic therapy, such as EFT and Hypnotherapy, is particularly effective in treating trauma. By focusing on the body's physical sensations, clients can process and release the physical and emotional tension associated with trauma without risk or re-traumatising
  • Increased self-awareness Therapy helps clients develop a greater understanding of their bodies and how they respond to stress and other stimuli. This increased self-awareness can help clients better regulate their emotions and manage stress.
  • Improved physical health Therapy can also have physical health benefits. By improving bodily awareness and reducing tension, clients may experience a reduction in physical symptoms such as headaches, muscle pain, and digestive issues.

All my sessions are informal and relaxed, in a safe private environment.
