Josephine Bey (MBACP, Counsellor and Psychotherapist, BA(hons), PgDip)
Let’s face it, life is hard and sadly there is no GPS, handbook or manual to help us navigate its many ups and downs. We are often taught to; “Be Strong”, “Suck it up”, “Man (or woman) up” and lots of other unhelpful one liners that really don’t help towards managing life's challenges. We learn to keep hurts quiet and muddle through pain and confusion on our own.
The good news is, we don't have to figure everything out on our own there is help available so you don't have to suffer in silence. By searching for support, you have already joined many others as one of the brave. By reading this you have taken the first step towards empowering yourself and taking back control.
I offer a safe, non-judgmental, supportive and empathetic space where we can explore difficult issues sensitively and you can truly be yourself - completely and wholly accepted and acceptable.
Training, qualifications & experience
Before retraining in psychotherapy, I spent many years working in the City, a time that has given me experiential understanding of workplace pressure. I can relate to the balancing act of weekday demands and how unresolved tensions can have a domino effect on our identity, self-esteem and confidence.
Following on from my first degree is in Anthropology, I have gone on to complete a Post-Grad Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I also hold certificate in Counselling studies, PTSD and Trauma work and I am a Mental Health First Aider.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
