Dr Joshua Bourne

At Bourne Path, I work with individuals, couples, families andolder adults aged 16 and older, of all populations, ethnicities and backgrounds. I offer a non-judgemental, positive and warm environment to help provide solutions to a variety of issues.
Our work together begins with a consultation, which will give us a chance to explore the issues you want to work on and for us to see if we'd like to embark on this therapeutic journey together as a team.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Please email me directly or call me for more information on fees.
I answer faster via email. While my fees are set to industry standard, I take financial considerations and hardships into account.
I typically offer sessions in evenings Tuesday to Thursdays and during the day on Fridays.
**Also, my profile and website with the Hudson Centre is listed on their sexual addiction website, but I do not work with clients on sexual addiction issues.**
