Tricia Johnson MBACP (Senior Accredited)

Hello and welcome to my page.
I have been helping people with psychological issues for over 30 years, and originally went for counselling training because others would often seek me out to listen to their problems and difficulties. My own background and past difficulties mean that I have a good understanding of where others may be coming from.
There are two of us on my team; I use a designated room in my home which is comfortable and relaxed while the other counsellor is based on the outskirts of Cheltenham. There is a bus stop almost outside my house, with buses regularly connecting Gloucester and Cheltenham.
We offer both day-time and evening sessions.
My concern is to help my clients overcome the issues that are preventing them from reaching their full potential; to see them break free from those things that are holding them back. Working with a number of different counselling models enables me to adapt to my clients' individual needs and circumstances.
Some clients come with a specific issue and goal in mind; these people I generally do not have to see too many times. Some, however, are looking for more general open-ended therapy, which I am also able to offer. Whatever your issues and situation, I can guarantee that we will do our best to create an environment where you will feel safe and listened to, with the ultimate goal of helping you to get to a place of freedom.
I also work as a supervisor. Here, my concern is to support and hold those in training, and to provide a space for the more experienced to off-load their concerns, frustrations and joys! As well as the excellent training I have had, my own experiences of both helpful and unhelpful supervision have taught me a lot; as a result I am in a very good place to help others.
As well as working with individuals and couples, I run workshops and seminars on counselling and personality issues. I am also trained as a Myers Briggs Personality Type assessor which is a very helpful and liberating tool to accept and understand yourself and others.
I am a senior accredited therapist with BACP, have full professional indemnity insurance and am fully committed to ongoing professional development, including personal therapy.
If you have any questions or are interested in finding out more please feel free to contact me with no obligation. I would love to hear from you, either by email or phone. Alternatively have a wander around my website, address and link above.

There are two of us on my team. I have carefully interviewed this counsellor to ensure that she is of a suitable standard, experience and ethos to work with my clients and has CRB clearance. I also require that she subscribes to the same code of professional conduct and is a member of BACP.
I run training days in Myers Briggs Personality Type - either for organisations or for groups of individuals.
I am considering, if there's enough interest, running a couple of days on Myers Briggs sometime later this year. You would be able to work out your personality profile, but then, through activities and 'games' in small groups, would be able to work out the implications of it all. If you would like to know more or would be interested in joining us, please let me know! When I've got some idea of the numbers I can organise dates and venue.
Furthermore, I run days for couples: either to enrich and deepen their relationship generally, or to get to understand themselves and one another better through the Myers Briggs Personality Type indicator.
I regularly update my website (address above) so please do take a look: articles, events, pause for thoughts, testimonials. Something might be of interest to you...
