About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I'm Joshua, a professional counsellor and registered British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) member.
I know how daunting it can be to look for a counsellor or finding who will match your needs and expectations. So I will talk you through how I work and what I can offer you, hopefully removing any confusion and making your search a little easier.
If you have any questions, I will be more than happy to help you.
My approach is relational and integrative, meaning that the relationship we develop is crucial to your growth and change in therapy. The integrative part is the modalities I use, which combine CBT, Psychodynamic, compassion and Trauma-focused. I work differently with children and young people. I use creative tools and mediums, such as play therapy-based interventions with a less formal approach. This working style allows me to tailor counselling to suit your needs, recognising that we are all unique individuals.
By providing a safe and confidential space free from judgement to explore your difficulties, we can work together to meet your aims and goals in counselling, some of which might be managing anxiety, dealing with depression, relationship issues, work, stress or working through and processing trauma.
My first session
In the first session, we will explore your aims and goals in counselling and decide together how I can best support you with this.
I will provide an in-depth assessment with a gentle approach. This provides me with a clear insight into the issues you're experiencing and what support you need.
We will look at forming a therapy contract and explore any questions or expectations you may have.
