My passion lies in helping individuals living with trauma, anxiety or depression related disorders, sex based issues, interpersonal difficulties and emotional regulation issues. I use a holistic client centred approach to help clients improve their relationship with themselves through self-compassion, awareness and emotional regulation. I use a combination of trauma informed approaches such as (Somatic Embodiment, Attachment Theory and Emotion Focussed Therapy) to support clients with emotional regulation, safely processing trauma and shifting unhelpful beliefs and unconscious patterns of behaviour.

Whether the problem that has brought you here is something recent, or has been an issue for a long time, I can help you understand what is happening so that you don't feel so lost. We can then work together to not only help create change in your current life, but also address the patterns that work against you so that the future looks much brighter too. My seven years experience in the mental health field has included helping people with depression, anxiety, family and relationship problems, psychosomatic issues, low self-esteem, trauma and addictions.

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.
