About me

Hello, my name is Joe.

Are you feeling anxious, low in mood, or stuck?
I am a person centred counsellor, which means I am here to offer you a safe space to listen to you, and help you move forwards.
As well as running my own private practice, I have experience counselling in Primary and Secondary schools, as well as colleges. I try to help you to reach your full potential and become your true, authentic self, before the conditioning of social norms, which is known as ‘Self Actualisation’.

This type of therapy helps clients to have more awareness, compassion, and resilience. I often like to share many things I have learnt from the counselling course I studied and any useful tips.

I am walk and Talk Therapy trained. We don’t have to sit in a room, if your preference would be to walk outside side by side. There are many health related benefits to being outdoors whilst having therapy. 

I am trained in Rewind, which is a treatment that can greatly reduce, and even remove Trauma, Phobias and Anxiety through relaxation and guided imagery.
Our traumatic experiences are stuck in the receptive part of our brain, rather than being filtered through to the memory part of our brains where it is filed away. This technique helps you to have control over the traumatic event by accessing it only if you did voluntarily, rather than being constantly triggered by the event.

I have also attended EFT practitioner training. EFT, also known as tapping is an incredible evidence based technique which can be used for multiple issues such as anxiety, depression,  stress, phobias, limiting beliefs and chronic pain. It has also found to be as successful for treating PSTD as EMDR in fewer sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have my own private practice based in Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire, called Okay To Talk Counselling, where I see clients with a variety of presenting issues and ages. 

My therapeutic background includes experience working for the NHS in the hospital and community setting. I had roles in Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Speech and Language Therapy. I had experience working in orthopedics, surgery, brain injury and stroke.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
