About me

Hello my name is Josephine. I am a Psychodynamic therapist with years of experience working across a diverse range of industries, countries and peoples.

I work with people facing a wide range of issues including but not limited to:

Anxiety, low mood & depression 

Childhood and other trauma (including relational/attachment trauma, C-PTSD, transgenerational trauma, sexual abuse, neglect, homelessness, torture/war/loss of home, loss of status/family, major life transitions, move from one country to another/culture to another)

Relationship difficulties

Identity-related inquiries (sexuality, gender, race, class...)



Bereavement and loss 


Domestic abuse  

Disordered eating and OCD presentations

I operate under the belief that it can be useful to explore our past experiences and traumas from multiple perspectives. It is not what trauma does to us but what we do with our trauma and how it has shaped and informed the way we are in the world that is most interesting to explore. If you have an appetite to  explore trauma from this perspective this work could be for you.

My therapeutic style is rooted in a desire to become curious about you. We will explore how you respond to and experience the world and think deeply about what this means for you in your life and relationships. 

If you are curious and interested in embarking on an adventure towards a deeper self understanding and if you have time and interest in exploring the roots of difficult feelings in order to move towards change in your life, this may be a valuable space for you. Please feel free to take a look at my website linked to this page for more information. 

How it works:

Contact me by phone, email or text

I will get back to you to arrange an initial phone call lasting about 15 minutes

We can then organise an initial session and discuss the option of working together

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).
