Hello and thank you for taking an interest in my practice! Below is some information so that you can get to know a little about me.
First and foremost please feel free to call me Josh. I am a UK-based Person Centred Therapist with a level 4 counselling diploma.
I have always been passionate about making a difference in people’s lives and so studied to become a BACP registered Counsellor.
Since then, I have worked as a counsellor in a drug and alcohol addiction recovery setting, and with sufferers of long-term health conditions. Currently, I work in both my private practice, an employed role as a counsellor at a local educational establishment and as a teacher where I deliver a counselling course.
Throughout all these roles I have worked with clients from many different backgrounds and with many different difficulties.
I believe that the more skills I have in my theoretical toolbox the better. To this end, I have also studied Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy (CBT) and am able to deliver this approach to clients.
Although counselling isn’t a protected title I chose to be a member of the ethical body the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am accountable to them in my practice, and they assure that I maintain the competencies required to practice as a registered counsellor.
Online Counselling Training
The BACP identify the different skills needed to practice therapy online. Because of this, I have completed an additional online counselling qualification course in order to be able to practice online.
