Joshua Carter (Reg. MBACP)
I'd like to start by wishing you a warm welcome, I know how daunting it can be looking for a counsellor, the right one to match your needs or expectations so I will talk you through how I work and what I can offer you. I’d like to help to take away any confusion and hopefully make your search a little easier.
I provide a safe and confidential space free from judgement to explore your difficulties where we can work together to meet your aims and goals in counselling such as managing anxiety, dealing with depression, relationship issues, work, stress or working through trauma.
My approach is relational and integrative which means that I believe that the relationship is key to your growth and change. The integrative part is the modalities I use which is combination of CBT, Psychodynamic and Person centred, solution focused or mindfulness. This style of working allows me to tailor counselling to suit your needs, which recognises that we are all unique individuals.
