Joe McGrann, Systemic Psychotherapist, Registered UKCP
Due to the Covid - 19 situation I can offer telephone/video based counselling in place of face to face sessions.
Counselling / psychotherapy can give you options and ideas for bringing about change, overcoming personal difficulties and working towards positive relationships in your life.
I am a registered systemic psychotherapist and maintain a private practice in supporting people who face these types of challenges . I have a broad range of experience offering therapeutic support to people experiencing cognitive, emotional and relationship difficulties.
I would welcome your enquiry whether you are an individual, a couple or members of a family.
Please feel free to contact me to arrange an initial appointment that will help you decide whether my approach fits with your needs.
