About me

Hi there, I'm Jon and I offer private and confidential one-to-one counselling in Barnsley.  I'm a qualified therapist with experience of dealing with a range of mental health problems - these include panic/anxiety, relationship issues (paranoia, jealousy and rage etc), depression and stress.  

My approach is largely Person Centred and Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT). I tailor this to the needs and goals of the client.  The University of Birmingham provided my REBT training which is accredited by The Albert Ellis Institute, New York.

I aim to develop relationships whereby clients feel comfortable and trusting in what I do. Once achieved, this can lead to effective therapy that gets to the core of many common psychological problems. My aim is that clients become empowered to live less distressing, more satisfying lives. In REBT we try to give the client the skills and theory to become effective self-therapists when future problems occur. 

I currently practice from my home address which is very close to junction 38 of the M1 - handy for people travelling from Barnsley, Wakefield Sheffield and Leeds.​

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Fees

Appointments last up to 50 minutes. The first one is to assess if I am the best person to help you and costs £20.

Subsequent sessions are £40, however, I can be flexible with pricing if you have a low household income (usually below £16,190 per year).  Please feel free to discuss this with me as I don't want money to be a barrier. I can also offer a discount rate to trainee counsellors on diploma courses.

The amount of appointments you'll need will depend on what you are hoping to achieve in counselling; we will discuss this at our first session.

I offer long and short term counselling depending on your needs.

Fees are payable by cash at the beginning of each session.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
