About me

Hi, my name is Josie and I’m a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor who works with adults and teens.

I offer a flexible service combining online, phone and/or face-to-face appointments (at an office in central Worcester).

I provide an impartial and outside perspective on your experiences in a way that's not possible with family or friends.

Together we can:

  • Make sense of what’s going on
  • Process difficult emotions
  • Look for patterns
  • Break down problems
  • Look at how your past impacts the present
  • Find solutions
  • Set goals

How I can help

Maybe your life has changed significantly, and you're struggling to adapt?

Maybe you have a dilemma and you don’t know what to do?

Maybe you want to improve your life or relationships but don’t know where to start?

Maybe you struggle with a mental health issue, and you’ve heard counselling could help?

Let's talk

If you think I could be the person to help, get in touch! You can book a 15 minute consultation at https://untangle.me.uk/#book

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP
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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
