Private Counselling

One-on-One Conversations
Individual counselling

Our face-to-face conversations and expert counselling techniques built on years of practical experience, will help you to take your life back from any of these crippling conditions.

My ultimate goal of individual counselling is to provide you with a confidential forum to unearth and confront issues that are limiting your growth and self-esteem. Through one-on-one conversations conducted in a safe and comfortable environment, my on-going therapeutic care and commitment will assist you in making the steps toward a journey of change and growth.

Private consultations provide a protected space in which you will achieve the following

  • Identify, and deal with, current traumatic events or stress factors in your life
  • Address feelings of fear, self-hate and self-degradation
  • Manage anxiety, fear and depression
  • Develop skills to detect and manage relationship issues
  • Embrace and appreciate your own uniqueness as an individual
  • Build an awareness of your own voice – an integral part of standing up to problems in your life
  • Develop new habits and ways of thinking to strengthen your commitment to well-being

  • I am so thankful to be alive and was indeed lucky to have had Joan as my psychological counsellor. Having been lost in anorexia’s black hole of nothingness, Joan never gave up on me, her commitment to my journey will always be treasured by myself and my family.

  • Joan’s appreciation of life and all things beautiful convinced me that I too can live without ongoing chaos caused by alcohol controlling my life. The journey to let go was hard with many setbacks. Joan’s ongoing commitment to my journey is what pulled me through. I can stand back in appreciation and look how far I have come, knowing I will never ever go back to where I was.

  • I am so grateful I took my daughter to see Joan when I did. Joan has a very unusual way of working with young people. She connects with them at a very deep level and gain their trust right at the start. After only one session with Joan I could see the difference in my child. She was smiling again after a very long time!

  • Four years after I lost my first wife I decided to remarry. It was hard for my children aged 10 and 12 to accept some-one new. Always sensitive to our difficulties, Joan assisted us individually and together to build and strengthen family ties. She supported us in the healing process and enabled us all to move forward.

  • By treating me not as a patient, but as a person – as a friend – Joan gained my trust, and I valued what she had to say. She showed me ways of getting back in touch with myself. Ways of getting to know myself again. I now have plans for my life. I have dreams and ambitions and I feel I have potential.

  • We experienced relationship problems, causing our marriage to suffer. We contracted with Joan for a few sessions. Joan has a heart for people and a passion for what she is doing. Her friendly, yet professional manner of dealing with people is something which comes very naturally for her, something which immediately made us very comfortable with her and really impressed us. It was a pleasure for us to work alongside Joan.
