About me

Hello, my name is Josephine. Do you ever feel that it would be great if you could talk to someone who could see the world from your perspective? Would you like to  be able to understand what is going on for you?

I am a qualified, registered therapeutic counsellor, and I work to an integrative, person-centred, client-led model of psychotherapy. I have full Professional Liability Insurance and enhanced DBS clearance. As a qualified therapist, I can help you try and make sense of your world which will help to enable you to lead a more fulfilling life. It can be really daunting making that first initial decision to attend counselling. I would like to reassure you that you will be in a safe environment without the fear of being judged.

"Creating a space where you feel safe"

Training, qualifications & experience

As a trained, experienced and qualified Counsellor, I previously, worked as a Counsellor at Women's Aid, and was also a Trustee.

I have a Master's Degree from Goldsmith's University, London "Understanding Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse", which has given me a greater insight into the complexity of working with domestic abuse.

I have achieved Level 3 Training/Education certificate & have run several training courses over the years on Domestic Abuse, Alcohol & Drug misuse, and Coercive Control.

I am a registered member of BACP and adhere to their Ethical Framework for good practice. My enhanced DBS certificate was issued in July 2020.

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.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

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.
