Peter Joy: BA Hons, MBACP, Registered
We can all be challenged or go through difficulties in our lives. At times we may become stressed, anxious, experience profound unhappiness or suffer a great loss.
Counselling provides a protected and boundaried space in which to bring and work through these experiences. In a counselling session, you will be heard, by a trained person, in strict confidence and without being judged.
I am a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, offering time-limited and open-ended therapy. I see clients, ranging from young adults to retirees, for all general needs counselling. I also specialise in loss and bereavement.
