Joyce gained a Diploma in Counselling in 1995, completing a BA in 1999. Throughout this time, Joyce has worked in a variety of settings including GP surgeries, prisons and rehabilitation centres, as well as private practice. This has involved individual and couples counselling, as well as facilitating groups, and both short term and open ended therapy.
For the past 12 years Joyce has been involved in working serving military personnel and their partners, primarily RN/RM, individual and couples counselling, face to face, telephone, and on-line. Currently she is co-director of Seaforth Counselling, offering specialist counselling to Royal Navy and Royal Marine community.
Joyce works with a range of issues but her work over the past decade has brought into focus the role attachment styles play in affecting our responses and she has furthered her training in developing a better understanding of this and looking at ways of working to help facilitate change.
In order for counselling to progress, the relationship with the counsellor is important in building a safe, respectful place to talk openly - Joyce has many years of providing this successfully.
