Hi there! I’m Joanne and I am a Professional Counsellor.
Before becoming a therapist, I worked many years in the media industry. The media industry is one that is not forgiving, demanding, and lacks a work-life balance. Throughout my previous career, I have crossed paths with many people across various nationalities, cultures and backgrounds. It was the challenges and struggles that I heard and witnessed during that journey that got me thinking of how I, as an individual, can help others who are going through a tough time.
“During the vulnerable times when we break, there seems no way out, we can’t and we’re unable to cope… helplessness seems to slowly contain us.” I believe that everyone’s life journey may not have been smooth throughout. You and everyone else, have the right to heal from your trauma, pain and stresses to attain happiness and to live a flourishing life.
It is through a combination of Person-Centred approaches and different integrative counselling techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, that I will assist you in your therapy journey to uncover the best version of you and build a resilient you. The moments of despair that you have experienced may make you feel as though you are all alone, but if you reach out for help, you are never alone. You don’t have to journey through life alone, let me take this journey with you.
