About me

I am a HCPC registered, Chartered Counselling Psychologist with over 16 years experience working with adults in a range of counselling settings. In my NHS work I specialised in working with people with long term health conditions and more recently in maternity and gynaecology. I now work exclusively in private practice.

I offer both short and long term therapy, and am based in Bishops Stortford CM23. I am happy to discuss how I work in an initial telephone conversation. More information is also available on my website joannaosullivan.co.uk

I offer online counselling using zoom.

  • Introduction to teaching Mindfulness, Oxleas Trust
  • Internship with the Calgary Family Therapy Programme, University of Calgary

I have extensive experience in the NHS of working with people adjusting to living with long term physical health problems, through to end of life care. I have experience of supporting individuals, couples and families in living with difficult symptoms, pain and the psychological consequences of these, such as anxiety, low mood and panic attacks.

I have practised mindfulness meditation for many years and offer mindfulness skills as appropriate to clients.

I am experienced in working with adults with a range of mental health problems and offer a safe, consistent therapeutic space in which to explore the beliefs, habits and feelings that can affect everyday life and wellbeing in order to create choices and new perspectives.
