Pauline Joyce MBACP Individual, Couples and Relationship Therapy
Life throws many surprises, and whilst you cannot predict the outcome of any situation, counselling and psychotherapy can help you develop an understanding of yourself to enable you to change the way you respond to certain situations.
Why are you here?
Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed, you may need help to cope with a crisis or relationship issue. Maybe you are going through a breakup, divorce or grieving the loss of a loved one. You might be struggling to believe in yourself, lacking confidence and self-esteem. You may be at a transition point in your life, changing jobs, being made redundant, family leaving home, retiring or new to the area. Perhaps you are struggling with depression, anxiety, childhood trauma or suicidal thoughts and feelings. You may be experiencing infertility or psychosexual issues. Or you may be living with cancer.
Life can be challenging, perhaps you or a family member is stuck in a cycle of addiction. You may be coming to terms with having been sexually abused. Sometimes talking to friends and family is not enough, we need to speak to a professional.
I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). Before opening my private practice, I worked with clients at a North London Counselling Charity. I am currently undertaking a PGDip in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy. I understand it takes courage to seek help, it is not easy; but you are here now. I provide a safe, supportive, confidential and non-judgemental space to work with your distressing thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
My aim is to enable you to resolve the difficulties you are experiencing today and bring about lasting change for you.

I work ethically in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I believe we are all unique and no single approach can work for everyone therefore I combine a number of therapeutic models to ensure the best fit to your unique self. I deeply believe a powerful, transformational healing can occur through therapy.
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.

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).
