Joan Broderick


I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP)

I am a qualified Counsellor and Cognitive Behaviour Psychotherapist. I work in a holistic way because of my experience in several different fields of psychology, counselling, health, mindfulness and complementary therapy. 


My experience 

I have spent 25 years working, studying and researching many modalities. From experience I have found holistic counselling, using psychological tools Nutrition and the Nes Health treatment system, improves health, greater awareness optimums and happiness in ones life. Then everyone benefits … the individual, society and the planet

Qualifying in holistic therapist nutrition, massage, Reiki, Nes Health Practitioner.  I am also a Bach/Australian Bush practitioner, working with remedies for the emotions, mind, body and spirit. I believe when counselling my clients that the whole person, body, mind and spirit needs helping.  I have found through experience that when you look at all aspects of your life your wellbeing improves. This is one of the reasons I have studied different modalities to integrate in my counselling and adapt them according to my clients’ needs. I feel having a range of therapy to offer helps to understand clients and enhances the quality of the counselling relationship. 

In my 25 years of experience I have worked with many individuals from diverse backgrounds and the difficulties that they have endured. Some of which include, stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, grief, trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar, depression, anger and domestic violence. 


Dyslexia Counselling 

I have a particular interest in dyslexia and fully appreciate the emotional repercussions that accompany what is commonly known as a learning difficulty. Many people with dyslexia seem to have a sense of being imprisoned and restricted due to their struggles with reading and writing. Having slow processing skills causes frustration, profoundly effecting a person’s confidence and feeling of self-worth. There are several specific emotions and difficulties commonly associated with dyslexia. Anxiety is the most frequent emotion suffered. Some adults may be so deeply affected that they become depressed. Many adults may feel a sense of shame carried through from the years when they were often labelled and written off as ‘lazy’, or ‘unwilling to learn’. Through my understanding of dyslexia and counselling we can explore these difficulties and discover your dyslexic advantages together.
