Joy Strachan

Hi, I'm Joy. I work with a wide range of issues, covering work and personal life.

As an integrative relational counsellor, I provide a supportive, empathic and non-judgmental space; where feelings can be safely explored together, to enable a deeper understanding of yourself.

I strongly believe in our capacity as human beings to thrive rather than just survive and our right to be our authentic self, living a joyful, satisfying life. If you feel you would like more from your life or you are suffering from a particular issue such as anxiety, grief, relationship difficulties or work/academic related issues, I would love to hear from you.

I offer short or long-term counselling, where we can work collaboratively, agreeing your goals and aims together. I aim to be alongside you to support and facilitate your journey, respecting your pace.

My integrative training means that I draw on a range of theories and techniques. We will often work holistically, drawing on the physical, emotional and intellectual aspects of your experience.

Joy Strachan - background

I consider myself an open minded, down-to-earth person with a genuine curiosity and love of difference and diversity. I worked for a travel company for many years which enabled me to travel the world, immersing myself in a world of cultures. Before becoming a counsellor, my background included many senior roles in marketing. This has given me a valuable insight into the world of work, organisational life, team dynamics and career issues.

I am a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), psychotherapeutic counselling section.

I work at the Cambridge Counselling Service office on Tuesdays during office hours.
