Hi there, I'm Jon and I offer private and confidential one-to-one counselling in Barnsley (S75).  I'm a qualified therapist with experience of dealing with a range of mental health problems - these include panic/anxiety, relationship issues (paranoia, jealousy and rage etc), depression and stress.   

My approach is largely Person Centred and Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT). I tailor this to the needs and goals of the client.  The University of Birmingham provided my REBT training which is accredited by The Albert Ellis Institute, New York.


I aim to develop relationships whereby clients feel comfortable and trusting in what I do. Once achieved, this can lead to effective therapy that gets to the core of many common psychological problems.  My aim is that clients become empowered to live less distressing, more satisfying lives.  In REBT we try to give the client the skills and theory to become effective self-therapists when future problems occur.   

I currently offer appointments on Sunday afternoons/evenings.  Please use the contact form or email jonbarkercounselling@gmail.com to book an appointment.
