My name is Josephine Peacock. I am a trained, experienced, and qualified Counsellor, who will listen with empathy (by putting myself in your shoes).  I can help you deal with negative thoughts and feelings you have about yourself. The psychological therapy I use is Humanistic, Person-Centred, which is client-led. I bring warmth and insight to my therapeutic work, which enables me to engage with clients and work productively to help them reach their goals.  I can help you gain self-awareness to lead a more satisfying and fulfilling life. You can express yourself in a safe environment without fearing being judged.


My work and professional practice are enhanced by monthly clinical supervision, and I adhere to the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions of my professional body, BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), of which I am a registered member, holding the Certificate of Proficiency.  I have a Masters' Degree from Goldsmiths University, London,  ‘Understanding Domestic Violence, and Sexual Abuse’, and previously worked as a Counsellor and Trustee at Women’s Aid. I have a DBS-enhanced certificate issued in July 2020.


I specialise in working with people who are experiencing or have experienced domestic violence, sexual abuse, and coercive control. I am there to support you and respect your views.  I am here to help you find insight into and understand your problems.

Talking therapy, also known as counselling, involves a qualified therapist listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues.  Counselling can help you cope with all situations, allowing you to understand your feelings and emotions.
