About Me

Johanna Burton

My work background is primarily in education and the performing arts, I have a degree in philosophy. I personally came to psychosynthesis counselling almost by accident, but through counselling I found myself able to face the gender dysphoria which had troubled me for almost all of my life; I have been able to find my way to live my life  so much more fully than ever before.

This has led me to study psychosynthesis, and eventually train as a counsellor. I trained at the Psychosynthesis Trust in London, and am a registered member of BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I abide by the BACP code of ethics.

Starting Counselling

It is a good idea to book a single session in order to meet me and learn a little bit more about the process and whether it feels right for you. 

From there, if you want to go ahead, it is usual to commit to  a minimum of six sessions after which there would be a review.  Sessions take place on a weekly basis. The overall length of being in therapy varies for each individual and could be anything from a few months to a couple of years. The important thing to remember is that it is about you and your journey and that I am here to help facilitate that.

Cost and Location

Because of the Covid restrictions, I am currently working predominantly online and am offering a special rate of £40 per 50 minute session for this. I am also offering everyone the first session without charge.

I can also offer concessionary rates – please enquire.

I am based in London SE1 close to London Bridge Station.
