Dr. Joanna Astill

Clinical Psychologist

Dr Joanna Astill is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and registered as a Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC). Having previously worked in NHS mental health services for many years, Dr Astill has extensive experience working with people who have experienced complex trauma, attachment difficulties, relationship problems (including with their own sense of self) and mental health issues
such as depression, anxiety and PTSD.  Dr Astill has also led an NHS service for assessment and diagnosis of adults with suspected ADHD and Autistic Spectrum. 
Dr Astill is able to provide specialist assessments and interventions tailored to clients and uses an integrative approach in her therapeutic work.  She uses a range of approaches to inform her work including: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing
(EMDR), Compassion Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems and Mindfulness. Dr Astill believes that early relationships can form a pattern for later ones and so is influenced by attachment theory, which underpins her work. She is experienced in delivering interventions with individuals, groups and via consultations with other professionals. Dr Astill is also an experienced clinical supervisor and contributed for many years to both Coventry University and The University of Birmingham doctoral training courses.
Dr Astill offers both face to face appointments at her office in Leicestershire, as well as working online with clients who are unable to attend the office or who would prefer online.
