    About Joanne

    Joanne is passionate about helping and supporting couples as they deal with long-standing relationship issues and move toward developing new and positive relationship approaches and skills.  She listens to her clients needs in a caring and non-judgemental way and is rewarded by seeing couples grow and change in positive ways.

    Together with couple counselling, Joanne is experienced in other problems:  Depression and anxiety, anger management, narcissism, pre-marriage issues, family therapy, trauma, aspergers and related syndromes, pain management, sexual difficulties and porn addiction.  Sometimes some of these problems can, and do, impact on couples and it is important to work out the ways in which such difficulties may have affected a relationship.

    Joanne has been in private practice for 12 years and prior to that worked in a Family and Relationship agency that focused on couple therapy.  She is also trained in family mediation, conflict management and hypnosis.

    Joanne has found recently that skype and phone counselling can be an excellent alternative for individuals or couples who live in remote locations or for reasons of time or privacy would prefer to experience counselling online.

    How many years counselling experience do you have?

    Over 22 years experience.

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?

    The ability to listen carefully, a completely non-judgemental approach and kindness.

    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    A very important and wonderful part of this work is all the amazing things we learn from our clients.  Their strength, their dedication, their humour in the face of pain, and in many cases, their genuine and admirable commitment to positive change is a daily lesson and inspiration.

    What’s an example of a couple you have helped the most?

    I received a showbag of presents – earrings, perfume,  champagne, a plant – other things- and a card which I of course I have kept – she said “ I will never be able to convey how much of a difference you have made to myself and my family. Your counsel, support and friendship have been invaluable to me regarding a confidence I had lost so long ago.  I hope that you are always abundantly blessed because you are truly so deserving.”
