I am Joanne Howell and I work with adults, young people and children. I presently work part-time for a Devon wide young person's charity as their Counselling Coordinator. I am also a private practitioner in South Devon.
I was inspired to practice in counselling after several years of working with young people and children, their parents and carers, where I have gained a wealth of knowledge and understanding. I have worked as a counsellor in primary and secondary schools. As well as a Diploma in Counselling, I have a BA (hons) in Health Studies, qualifications in Youth Work and Child Development. I am also an Accredited Counselling Supervisor.
As an integrative counsellor, I use three main theories of counselling to help individuals in the most suitable way. These include Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Gestalt. I work flexibly and creatively within these approaches to engage with the individual and work through the priorities.
I keep up-to-date in my practice and take continued professional development opportunities. I also have supervision every month to enable me to continue to practice safely and competently.
