Joanne Everson

Experienced Psychotherapist

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.
