Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mrs Joanna Dadge at Spire include:
Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Since qualifying in orthopaedics in 1973 and as a RGN in 1976, I have worked in both hospitals and General Practice.
I specialised in asthma and COPD but ran clinics in coronary heart disease and diabetes, all part of the Quality Framework which links into key target areas and NICE guidance.
During this time it became evident that symptoms exhibited by many patients had an underlying link to depression. Realising the importance of this, I gained a post-graduate diploma in psychodynamic counselling at Leicester University in 2007 and completed an extended course in CBT in 2009 and in group therapy in 2012.
In 2010, I was appointed as counsellor to Leicester Diocese and pastoral advisor to the Bishop of Leicester. I apply ethical standards to all aspects of my work and attend fortnightly supervision.
Psychodynamic counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and group therapy.
Member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
Nursing and Midwifery Council
I re-married four years ago and have four children now in their twenties and thirties. For seven years I worked as a vice president for the Red Cross in the Leicester city area as a volunteer on the events committee. This had to be curtailed due to heavy work commitments, but I continue to fund-raise for my local Church and for cancer research. My hobbies include reading, swimming, music, tennis, scuba diving and making sugarcraft wedding cakes.Back to top
