About Joshuajk 2018 mugshot

Joshua has been involved in healing and personal development work for over 20 years, after various health issues in the 1990’s led to a journey of self-discovery and self-healing.  He has a depth of practice in various kinds of active and passive meditation techniques, yoga, music, dance, shamanic work and self-inquiry.  All of this contributes either explicitly or implicitly to the work he does with individuals, and supports the healing process on different levels.

He is also a dedicated member of the Oxford community, leading regular Kirtan groups and with his partner, Sarah, founded the much-loved ethical shop Indigo on the Cowley Road.

About his work he says:

“My work is a constantly evolving medicine, rooted in the present, but calling forth the traumatic memories that need resolution.  With compassionate attention, I look for the way forward in whoever is in front of me, and in the spaces between.  The trauma therapy training I have done gives substance, and offer frameworks through which we can step into and navigate the unknown and challenging landscape of trauma.  I also love to inquire into the deeper life questions if this is called for, and can support the integration of any insights that come into daily experience.”

Testimonials:

“I have had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for just over a decade and have tried various therapies and processes over the years.  I have found the Somatic Experiencing technique to be most effective. It works on the link between the mind and the body in a way that other therapies don’t manage, at least to such a noticeable extent.’

“Josh has helped me face some of the most difficult parts of my past, and thanks to his wonderful calming presence it has been relatively painless; something I never thought it could be.”

“Josh is a very sensitive, intuitive, intelligent and compassionate person and I have found working with him to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.”

“Josh made me feel comfortable and in the safety of his treatment room I faced childhood traumas and uncovered, addressed and healed things that were preventing me from enjoying life – lack of boundaries, low self-esteem, perfectionism, lack of self-worth, suicidal thoughts; Josh helped me to calm my erratic mind and understand myself better.”
