4+ Years Post-Registration Experience

Hello. I'm Joanne. I'm a registered counsellor and psychotherapist - I support individuals and couples with their emotional health. I have private and public sector experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist. My interest includes anger, depression and Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and the particular issues encountered by women.

What to Expect

An initial assessment appointment allows you to see if you feel comfortable with me, discuss what concerns you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and determine if therapy could help you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange an introductory assessment appointment in Taunton.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT concentrates on how your thoughts affect your feelings and behaviour. It identifies and challenges unhelpful thoughts which maintain the issues you experience. The objective of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to have healthier thoughts and feelings.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) indicates CBT for alcohol dependence, Binge Eating Disorder (BED), bipolar disorder, depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and self harm.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You decide what issue concerning your childhood and/or adult life you discuss. The aim of counselling is to help you to talk about a problem and discover a solution which is appropriate for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the difficulties you face. It considers your ideas, feelings and significant moments in your life. Psychotherapy aims to help you develop or find suitable ways of coping.
