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 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 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.

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 gov.uk , 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.
