About me and my therapy practice
I am Joanna, a psychotherapist working one-to-one with adults in the London Bridge area.
I work integratively, which means that I make use of a number of different approaches, adapting the work to meet your needs.
I have worked for several charities and have particular experience of working with people who live with chronic health conditions, are facing life-changing diagnoses, coping with bereavement and loss, anxiety and depression, and those who are struggling with the meaning and direction of their lives.
I can support you to recognise patterns of behaviour which feel stuck, and explore the ways in which these may no longer meet your needs. In recognising these patterns you can become free to make different choices and live your life in a more fulfilling way. Identifying areas where you can make changes, and also where you cannot, allows you to become aware of different possibilities, recognising where adjustments may benefit you and your relationships.
Whether this is your first experience of therapy, you are returning to address new circumstances, or whether you want to look again at issues you have not yet resolved, I can help you begin to make sense of the situation you are in and your responses to your world and the people who matter to you.
We can meet for a fixed number of sessions or for a longer, open-ended period of time and would review this as we progressed through sessions.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within their code of ethics as well as the framework set by Regent's University.
