About Joyce Mandel Walter MBACP, MCOSRT (Accred)

My work is to help individuals and couples take a fresh look at their relationships and to living a rich, satisfying life. We often put blocks up because we understandably want to feel ‘safe’, but this can become a painful trap, keeping you stuck and feeling isolated and alone. I also work with those who are picking up the pieces after a break-up or bereavement, and those who wish to find themselves within a loving relationship but keep hitting blocks in the process, or aren\’t sure they\’re ready yet.

I have been specifically trained in the field of human relationships and sexuality and am experienced in working with both individuals and couples to sensitively explore difficult issues in these areas, as a counsellor and as a COSRT accredited psychosexual & relationship therapist. I offer a safe space where you can be seen and heard, without judgement.

I offer flexible appointment times, daytime or evenings with little or no waiting lists.

I have a special interest and experience in working with the following issues: Survivors of abuse, loss & bereavement, sexual orientation, sexual dysfunction, ‘Low or No Sex’ relationships, Difficulties around sexual orientation or gender; life stage transitions, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Anxiety, Emotional Intensity Disorder, fear of commitment, addictions & partnering those with addictions (including internet, gambling, porn & sex addiction), Low confidence and self esteem, “I Love you but I’m not in Love with you” couple dynamics and work related stress & bullying.

While using words to communicate is the cornerstone of therapy, I also sometimes like to turn to other methods, such as the use of creative techniques including images, drawing and buttons, for example, to help some clients to go \’beneath\’ the words and access the bigger picture for themselves.

In addition to my private practice, I worked for many years at Relate West Kent as one of their experienced and fully accredited counsellors. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ; The College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT); The Association for Independent Practitioners (AIP); and the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT);
