Bernie Joy UKCP Registered Psychotherapist & Counsellor
077 486 165 26
I am a highly experienced Counsellor who is a member of UKCP so you can be assured of my professionalism and training.
My approach is described as existential, this means that I will help you to make sense of your life and recognise that although it may seem difficult, you do have choices and you can overcome the difficulties you face at the moment.
I am not a therapist who just sits and listens nodding their head from time to time. As in everyday life, the quality of conversation relies on the quality of the relationship. It is my goal to help you to feel at ease so we can have open conversations and discover what choices you have in your present situation. Whatever your concerns, we can try and discover new directions, different ways of looking at and accepting your life.
I have a lot of experience in:
- lack of achievement
- body image
- relationship to food
- and sexuality.
Please note this list is not exhaustive and I would be more than happy to speak with you about any issues or difficulties.
