Joanne is an experienced psychotherapist in treating adults with a wide range of difficulties. She is a British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapist’s (BACP) Senior accredited, registered therapist and is also an accredited member of the EMDR Europe Association.
Initially Joanne trained in the Psychodynamic model of counselling and psychotherapy, specialising in Attachment Disorders and Narcissism. However, the emergence of EMDR therapy as a recognised gold standard treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) diverted her interest into the area of psychological trauma and and its underlying causes. She then undertook further training in EMDR at the University of Worcester. Joanne’s specialist areas now include PTSD, Complex Trauma (CPTSD), and phobias amongst other complex mental health problems such as depression, anxiety and relational difficulties.
Joanne works both face-to-face and on-line from a client-centred perspective. She regards therapy as being a collaborative process, exploring and working together with whatever clients choose to bring to sessions. Her approach incorporates both an understanding of the psychodynamic origins of clients’ current issues and the amelioration of symptoms utilising EMDR with a view to transforming clients from an emotionally constraining past into a positive and constructive present.
Over the past 15 years, alongside her private practice work, Joanne has lectured in Psychotherapy at Guildford College and NESCOT College, and has been a Keynote speaker in Narcissism and Trauma at a Conference for Survivors of Narcissistic Abuse. She is currently working towards the creation of a Specialist Trauma Clinic in the UK.
