Hello and welcome to my website. I am a Trauma Qualified Counsellor & Supervisor with experience of offering counselling services to individuals and groups, adults and young people aged 16+, I am able to offer short-term and long-term work, I am able to meet with you in East Finchley, Liverpool Street, London Bridge or via Skype in English.
I like to work creatively with my clients integrating body work, creative writing and art materials. In the therapeutic work we do together, I will provide you with the best of care, and develop a professional relationship based on confidentiality, trust and respect.
I work with a wide range of presenting issues including: dealing with anxiety, confidence, depression, isolation, long-term chronic illnesses, loss, personal development, relationships, self-esteem, social anxiety and stress.
My counselling Specialisms include:
“I found Joel’s lecture on ChemSex eye opening and highly inspiring. I didn’t have much knowledge of the subject before. Joel’s lecture allowed me to investigate the scene, as if I was there. And in the same time, it gave me a wide glimpse at the challenges and dangers this scene can present in the professional sense. I highly recommend it”
“Joel Korn participated in the Mastering Addictive Personality Training in 2015. Then subsequently delivered two excellent lectures on ChemSex and its attendant issues on subsequent MAP trainings. Joel teaches from a compassionate and open-hearted space within himself. His teaching style is personal and very engaging”
“I’m grateful for our sessions and signing myself up for counselling is one of the best things I’ve ever done. I really appreciate everything you and your work helped me with in the 12 sessions – really, thank you!”
“I liked your therapy style and I would always recommend you to a friend”
“I thought Joel’s presentation on ChemSex had the right balance of personal experience and statistics. If it was just statistics the numbers start to lose their weight for me, so the personal parts helped it all to sink in. It was a topic I was a bit familiar with and this really helped to expand my awareness. It was interesting to have the chronological history part explained how as the drugs and music changed so did sex and how we treated sex. How the past & present attitudes towards gay, queer, trans effect people & can contribute to the emotional scarring shame stigma etc. For me it was like an opening into a longer conversation and I would have liked more discussion afterwards”

My first boyfriend Mark died rom HIV when I was just 18 years old. I have come to the realisation that Mark is still alive in me. The love and compassion I have for him is still alive today. He is the person who helps me find the drive for my work in the HIV community today.read more
