About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Joanna. I am an experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor working in private practice at New Road Psychotherapy Centre in central Brighton. I offer weekly therapy, combining clinical knowledge with a down to earth and straightforward approach and I am able to help with a wide array of issues that are difficult to tackle alone.
There are many reasons why people decide to come to therapy. You might be feeling overwhelmed and anxious or stuck and frustrated and you’d like to get clearer about what it is that is bothering you. Or, perhaps, you know what you want to explore and you’d like some help to address those thoughts, feelings and behaviours that you find challenging.
There is something both supportive and practical about taking some time each week to sift through the complexity of your life, and come to understand yourself more fully. What therapy provides is a space to be really heard, with the kind of attention that is deeper and more focused than that available in everyday conversations.
It is my belief that counselling is not about seeking perfection, but is, rather, a process towards acceptance of the whole self. To this end you are invited to explore the influence of your past, the realities of your present and the significance of those aspects of life that exist beyond the everyday and purely rational, such as the realm of the imagination and connection with the natural world.
I practice within the BACP Ethical Framework and am committed to providing therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
If you think you might be interested in working with me you are very welcome to contact me to arrange an initial consultation. I offer a free 30 minute zoom call where we can meet and see if we might work well together. Please call and leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
