Joel Simpson (MBACP) Integrative Transpersonal Counsellor
North West London
You may be suffering from anxiety, relationship & family issues, affairs, betrayals, separation & divorce, depression, sadness, addictions, bereavement, panic, abuse, trauma and child related issues. Embarking on a therapeutic journey, with me, creates time and space just for you to be seen and heard while exploring what life is presenting you with. You’ll be met within a confidential, and non-judgmental setting. Get in touch if you feel lost, stuck, caught in a pattern, at a crossroad or in crisis. You may be exhausted from holding secrets and shame and want to find courage to speak your truths by reclaiming your own voice. You may feel conflicted with cultural, religious, familial and societal expectations. It takes courage to call, email and use the contact form; you’ll be received with empathy and sensitivity when you do.
My practice is inclusive and heart centered. I welcome clients along the wide spectrum of cultural, gender, sexuality and relational expressions. Experiences of racism, colourism, shadism, sexism, ageism, and discrimination around disability, classism, xenophobia, transphobia, biphobia, homophobia or other oppressions can be wounding, traumatic and present as aspects of your journey that we might attend to, where necessary.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold an Integrative Transpersonal Counselling Diploma from Re-Vision, which is a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accredited training. I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework. In line with BACP’s framework, I regularly discuss my work with an experienced supervisor. I am working towards the completion of an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapy.
I have worked at the Terrence Higgins Trust, Re-Vision’s Low Cost Counselling Centre and volunteered with the Samaritans. I hold a Master’s Degree in Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment, a Postgraduate Diploma in Education and an Honours Degree in Law.
