About Me

Johanna Burton

My work background is primarily in education and the performing arts, I have a degree in philosophy. I came to Psychosynthesis counselling quite late in life, but I have found it enlightening and empowering on levels beyond my expectations. It has given me the ability to live and to express the spirituality which has always been part of me, it gave me the strength to deal with the gender dysphoria which I have known since a small child.

It is important for me to state openly that I am a transwoman. I believe that in the process of becoming this I have gained insights that can benefit my work as a counsellor with both women and men. We all have unresolved tensions and potentials, yours will not be the same but they are always the places that we can grow from.

My experiences  have 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.
