Hi! My name is Josie …

I am a fully qualified and accredited BACP Counsellor, who has been in practice since 2009.

Throughout my counselling career I have integrated various theories and techniques into my approach, this gives me greater flexibility in how I respond to you as a counsellor. I strongly believe there is no set formula for recovery or improved wellbeing and will draw on a variety of methods to meet the needs of each individual.

As an experienced, caring, professional counsellor I offer confidential sessions at my private practice near Loughborough. I am committed to working inclusively with a diverse range of people over the age of 18.

If you think I might be able to help you, then I encourage you to set up a call with me and let’s talk.

Frequently Asked Questions

Many of my clients will have questions they want to know answers to before proceeding. Some of the most common ones are addressed in this section, but if you have others then please do get in touch and I’ll be happy to provide an answer.

It is important you feel safe and understood; I work collaboratively to agree how our sessions are structured, how frequently we will meet and ensure we have an agreed outcome to work towards.

The therapeutic relationship we create together is central to how I work. I will seek to understand you; your beliefs about yourself, others and your environment.

In my experience counselling is most effective when people feel safe to learn about themselves, to identify beliefs or responses that aren’t helpful anymore and are willing to explore new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. Self-acceptance is often the key to enabling personal change.

What are your fees?
I charge £45.00 per 50 minute session.
When are appointments available?

Tuesday – Friday between 14.00- 20.00.

Please contact me to find out when I have availability.

How many sessions will I have?

The period of time we meet for will depend on what you need. I am happy to work with clients on a short, medium or long term basis, depending on what is suited to you.

When agreeing the possible time-frame to work together, we will consider the issues you want to deal with, the outcome you are aiming for and the pace you feel comfortable working at. This is something we would review together at agreed points during your counselling, to ensure you are getting what you need from our sessions.

What would a counselling session be like?

Our initial session is an opportunity to find out more about each other. We will explore what you want from counselling and determine whether the service I offer is appropriate for your needs.

It is important you feel safe and understood; I work collaboratively to agree how sessions are structured, how frequently we will meet and ensure we have an agreed outcome to work towards.

It may be at first you are not sure what you want from counselling, having time dedicated to thinking about your own needs can feel like a unique experience, I will work flexibly with you to identify what you want to gain from counselling.
