About Joanne Henshall

Jo Henshall MBACP (Accred) - founder of Talbot Counselling Services based in Poole, Dorset. Providing a comprehensive Counselling service and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. "I am passionate about providing high standards of competency and ethical practice, enabling and empowering individuals towards improved mental health and well ​being. My approach to therapy is integrative which means I have been trained in, and can employ several theoretical approaches. I draw from​ Third Wave Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Humanistic/Person Centred, Psychodynamic concepts, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Existential approaches to adapt the theory to provide individually tailored and bespoke treatment plans. My ethos is eclectic, advocating holistic aspects throughout therapy, treating the person as a whole.". I have provided general counselling, CBT and psycho-therapeutic support across three charity and government funded counselling organisations, prior to the founding of Talbot Counselling Services . I have had extensive training within the spectrum of trauma, and have successfully enabled adult survivors of childhood abuse, sexual violence PTSD, and addictions to make beneficial changes to their lives. My work with addictions took place within a drug and alcohol treatment centre, where i also provided counselling support for people caring for someone with a drug and/or alcohol problem. I am also an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist providing therapeutic support to the charity’s members and partner beneficiaries. I am subject to Anxiety UK’s regular monitoring of my professional qualifications, supervision, continual professional development, insurance and professional body membership in addition to complying with the ethical framework and professional standards set down by my registered governing body.
