About Me

I see the therapy process as a partnership and the client (You) are the most important part of that process. It is your process and I see myself, as the therapist, as a part of the process like a guide. Feedback is important to me, as I can use this information to help guide you in the way that is most helpful. Most of my work is done in a model that is based on helping you find your strengths to resolve any problems that you identify. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, which helps you examine how what you think, and how you are thinking can impact your experiences. Also I focus on helping you find solutions to your situation and ways of looking at things that help you to find solutions. I also encourage people to find their own ways of self-care and rejuvenation, because all of us need to use the best self-care that we possibly can, in order to find the best quality of life for ourselves in this world.

Dr. Kallio has helped me so much. She listens without interruption and then advises with such great intention. She has said some profound things that have helped me to figure out where I am at and where I want to be. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Kallio has been absolutely incredible. I have not told a soul on this planet the things that I have told her, and she has never made me feel judged - only given me wonderful advice and help.

Dr Joelle Kallio has been wonderful for me over the last couple of months. I certainly would not have gained a Dr (Clinical Psychologist) via any other method to my knowledge in UK. For counseling face to face I would only be able to have an ordinary counselor and the waiting time can be up to 6 months. I decided on this counseling route originally as general support for a lifetime decision to do with Adoption so records would not be added to my UK Mental Health. Dr Kallio has been an extremely welcome major support throughout my depression, crisis period due to judgements and decisions being made in my life at the moment. Dr. Kallio has enabled me to message or video with her. I have dyspraxia and Border Line Personality Disorder and she has been fantastic with supporting me during times such as Easter Break when my usual local Support was not available. She’s been great providing me with website info such as Dialectical B Therapy and other topics she thought may be good for me. A very empathetical, calming person whom I can’t speak Highly Enough Of. She has listened, been there for me, responded and enabled me to deal with all my current dark thoughts and speech. I feel extremely lucky and am extremely happy with Joelle as a counsellor.

Joelle is genuinely empathetic and will listen to any stressful situations you are going through with care. She is great to work with and provides a stress-free, non-judgmental environment where you can feel free to open up.

Written by T.I. on Apr 19, 2019 after counseling with Joelle for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting issues, and career difficulties

Joelle is very supportive and does her best to offer suggestions to approach life happenings from a different angle. Her supportiveness is shown when she says she “feels like (I) am doing well overall.”

Written by R.U. on Feb 15, 2019 after counseling with Joelle for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Dr. Kallio is great! She is a great listener and is really skilled at addressing and targeting the main point of my sometimes long-winded concerns/problems. She gives great advice, and everything she says is personalized to ME and my situation. I never feel like she is spouting out psycho-textbook babble. She has been very helpful!

I love working with Joelle, she listens to all of my concerns, understands what I feel and why and helps me understand too. She is kind, friendly and flexible to meet when it suits. I couldn’t be happier with her. As a person who doesn’t trust easily, Joelle has quickly earned my trust and given me the support I truly needed and I am very grateful and glad to have her help.

Dr. Kallio was very attentive and listened carefully. Her responses were entirely appropriate to each subject that we discussed. She offered me help in a format that suits me well. I look forward to renewing our counselor/patient relationship when finances are less strained for me.

Dr. Kallio is a great therapist. She always replies and we are able to have video chat sessions at convenient times.

I love Dr. Kallio. She always has the right words to say and I always feel comfortable talking with her.

Written by M.I. on Nov 13, 2018 after counseling with Joelle for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career difficulties

Dr. Kallio is so helpful. She's really great at listening to every concern that I have and addressing all of the points that I put forward. She is only interested in helping others and I love that about her. She isn't very forceful in her conversations, which I like. I know most therapists would just go straight for the break you down and build you up concept, but Dr. Kallio is different. We only explore areas that are uncomfortable to discuss if I want to explore those areas. I am so glad I was able to connect with her.

I have been working with Dr. Kalio now for the past couple weeks. I feel heard during our sessions. She’s attentive, responsive and that makes me feel as though she cares about my wellbeing. So far so great!

Written by M.A. on Oct 23, 2018 after counseling with Joelle for 2 months on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Dr. Kallio has helped me in so many ways. She has supported me and has always focused on what I want to work on and has provided me with so many great tools to be successful at what I want for my future. I have felt comfortable sharing anything and everything without feeling judged or that I should feel bad or guilty for how I feel.

She could be saving my life. That's as good as it gets. Thank you.

She is very lovely, she makes me feel better everytime I read her messages and everytime I write stuff down for her to read, it lifts a lot of weight from me and I always know that she will read them and respond, so I don’t have to worry. She is very understanding and knows how to write back in a way I am very comfortable with.
