Hi, I'm Joanne - a qualified Counsellor working locally in Inverclyde.
If you are taking the time to read this, I imagine that this basic info, is as much as you need right now. Not a lot of industry specific jargon, as you are struggling and needing some support.
I also understand it's daunting looking to meet with a stranger and share your deepest thoughts and feelings and why would you with me?
Well, I've genuinely only your best interests at heart and I'll take whatever is going on with you very seriously, with no judgement. I will listen to you, support you, be compassionate and empathetic with you. I wont try to mould you, or try and tell you who you should be, or what you should do.
Sessions are different for each individual, as you are unique and so is your life. My work is built around you and your needs.
I've worked with clients who bring many issues or problems, from bereavement and mental health, to trauma and addiction. A lot of the time clients have no idea what the issue is, they may feel stuck, unhappy, unable to make choices and decisions. Together we explore this, gaining insight as we go and building strategies to move forward and cope better.
