About

Hi, my name is Josh. I specialise in working with clients with trauma (PTSD), anxiety, depression and chronic conditions by facilitating Body-Mind Processing practices. I use Buddhist Psychotherapy as my therapeutic framework. Buddhist Psychotherapy is a non-religious, brain science-focused and compassion-oriented framework, which can combine evidence-based counselling methods with body-mind integrative practices for a restored sense of wellbeing. My practice focuses on the body’s innate wisdom to work out solutions to the presented issues, as well as working with emotions as the vehicles to connect body-and-mind.
I use a wide range of therapeutic approaches, depending on the needs of individual clients, including EMDR Therapy, Somatic Approach, Mindfulness, Focusing, Clinical Hypnosis, Qigong, Havening Techniques and Meridian Tapping. These body-oriented approaches are proven to be effective for stress reduction, emotion regulation and processing memories of trauma.
As a therapist, I believe that everybody has their own healing power within. I see my role as a therapist is to help you connect with your own inner wisdom by providing a safe empathetic space. I enjoy working with people from a wide range of backgrounds, including migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and LGTIQA+ community. I look forward to meeting you.
