Counselling & Creative-Arts Therapy

Joan Jarrett BSc (Hons) MBACP


Do you need someone to talk to? Sometimes life can get tricky with unexpected changes or we can feel stuck. Perhaps experiences from your past are intruding in your daily life? I believe I can help. I am a qualified Humanistic Gestalt counsellor which means that I work with you to help you be curious, find new perspectives and make meaning of your experiences. I provide traditional talking therapy, and can also use creative ways to explore thoughts, feelings, behaviours and relationships. My role is not to provide advice, but to help you explore and discover solutions to manage transitions.

I have a lifetime’s experience with neurodiversity and mental health issues so I understand the challenges these can bring for individuals and for families. I am here to listen to what that means for you, working at a pace that is comfortable while providing gentle challenge to help you feel safe, connected and in control.

I can offer short term counselling or longer term psychotherapy, either online or in-person in rooms in central Winchester. I work with any age adults and teens 16+, Monday – Thursday 8:00-18:00.

My fee is £55 for each 50-minute session.

I offer a free 30 minute online or telephone initial consultation to determine our compatibility.

I have worked with abuse, ADHD, autism, anxiety, attachment issues, bereavement, bullying, cancer diagnosis, chronic illness, depression, dissociation, hoarding, identity issues, learning difference, low mood, low self-esteem, neurodiversity, parenting issues, pre- and post-partum mental health, PTSD, relationships, self-harm, shame, stress, suicide and trauma.
