Josephine Sheppard, UKCP accredited Psychotherapist & Counsellor
I am a UKCP accredited Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor based close to Clapham Junction Station. I am also a member of BACP. I have 10 years of experience gained in a variety of clinical settings.
Do you feel that your past is holding you back?
Do you feel stuck and unable to move forward?
Are your relationships unfulfilling?
Do you lack confidence and wish you felt better about yourself?
Are you stressed?
Do you feel down and that life seems to have lost its meaning?
If so, psychotherapy and counselling could help you. Talking to a psychotherapist or counsellor offers you the chance to explore in a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space the thoughts and feelings that are troubling you.
I offer an initial free half-hour no-obligation meeting to enable you to discuss with me your reasons for seeking therapy and for me to address any questions you may have about my professional practice.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have completed five years of professional training at Regent’s School of Psychotherapy and Psychology. I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy (2006) and an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy (2010).
I am accredited by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and as such am bound by their ethical framework for good practice. I am also a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I have had several years of experience of working with clients with a diverse range of difficulties at Hammersmith and Fulham MIND, Victim Support (Westminster) and Wimbledon Guild of Social Welfare.
I am trained as an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist which means that I draw on more than one theoretical approach as appropriate in my client work.
