Ethos, Training and Practice…

   Joanne Henshall   

  Dip, Couns. Reg. MBACP.


The foundations of my Counselling training, which started in 2013 are based upon Rogerian theory (Person Centred). However, as my training progressed, I became increasing passionate (and still am), about the differing theoretical approaches, that enable and empower clients, offering the opportunity for healing, improved wellbeing and progression, at a therapeutically deeper level.  

My ethos is eclectic, and I take all holistic factors into consideration such as bio/socio/psycho elements for example, when offering therapy.

I have a full CPCAB Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am a registered member of the BACP, qualifications achieved to date include:


Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling

Alcohol, Drug and Substance Misuse Awareness Certificate

Additional Certificates, Training and Client Practice Experience:
