I currently offer face to face as well as online or telephone sessions.
Hello, my name is Joe. Thank you for taking the time to view my page.
You may be considering counselling or therapy, to help you with decision making or with relational difficulties. You may be facing a crisis of confidence in your current life. As an experienced and compassionate psychotherapist, I can support you through your current dilemmas and help you develop ideas and strategies that work for you. In the process, periods of stress, anxiousness or mood fluctuations, may be managed by you more effectively.
As a systemically trained psychotherapist, I am interested in all of the influences in your life that have made you the person you are today. Therapeutic work would involve unpackaging the connections that are not working for you and creating a safer, more integrated foundation for subsequent decision making and choices in your life.
My experience as a psychotherapist and a counselling tutor over a 15 year period, has enabled me to build successful therapeutic alliances with individuals, couples and families. A successful therapeutic relationship is one where you will have permission to explore your difficulties without censure and be guided by ethically informed standards.
