Joanna Earle PG Dip Psychodynamic Individual and Couple Counselling Reg. MBACP
I am an individual and couple counsellor and psychotherapist with over 25 years experience.
Training, qualifications & experience
Having studied counselling at Leicester University, I joined Relate where I qualified and worked as a couple counsellor for over 15 years, latterly as a Relate Licensed Counsellor.
In 2007 I joined the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships (now known as Tavistock Relationships) where I initially studied Attachment Theory. I then studied and worked with both couples and individuals before completing a post graduate diploma in psychodynamic counselling. At the same time my private practice, which continues today, was developing.
For a while I was a member of the Ethics Committee of the British Society for Couple Psychotherapists and Counsellors (BSCPC). I am a graduate member of the Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology (TIMP) and sit on the Tavistock Relationships Alumni CPD committee.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
