About Joel

I have integrity and I am open-minded. I am warm and very passionate about the work I do. I am a Trauma Qualified Counsellor & Supervisor with experience of offering counselling services to individuals and groups, adults and young people aged 16+, in North & Central London. I also offer Supervision, Training & Consultancy Services. I like to work creatively with clients using creative writing and art materials. I can walk in the shoes of the client to be able to provide them with the best of care, and develop a professional relationship based on confidentiality, trust and respect. I have the tenacity & self-awareness to work in challenging situations.

I am happy to work for statutory or voluntary sector organisations offering Counselling or Supervision on a freelance basis, for small or large projects.
