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 a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling from Regent's University, and am currently studying for the Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy, also at Regent's.
I hold a certificate in Counselling Skills from Tower Hamlets College, and a Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling from the Psychotherapy and Hypnosis Training Association.
I have worked for several charities and have particular experience of working with people struggling through a difficult pregnancy, with pregnancy loss and parents who are grieving the death of a baby.
I also have experience of working with people who are impacted by the burdens of a chronic health condition - whether their own or someone they care for - and those facing life-changing diagnoses, (in particular, stroke, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and cancer) coping with bereavement and loss, anxiety and depression, and those who are struggling with the meaning and direction of their lives.
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 taught by Regent's University.
What is Psychotherapy?
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. We will check in with one another and review this as we progress through sessions.
Fees and Location
Sessions cost £70.00 and last for 50 minutes. Payment can be made by bank transfer before the session or by cash at the start.
We would meet once a week, usually on the same day at the same time. Once we have agreed on a day and time you will be charged for each session unless you give me 48 hours notice that you will not be able to attend.
My practice is in the Hop Exchange, close to London Bridge, Southwark and Borough tube stations and within easy reach of Waterloo and Bank. The area is also well served for buses.
The address is:
24 Southwark Street
If you would like to meet for an introductory session to explore how we might work together, please contact me to arrange an appointment. I will usually respond the same day.
