Joanna is a highly qualified registered psychologist in Perth who provides therapy for people of all ages, including families and couples. She provides a confidential and professional service and is committed to ensuring that all clients receive the highest standard of care and a positive experience of counselling. She understands that many people feel nervous about attending counselling, so makes sure to spend time in the first session discussing goals and motivations for attending therapy and what to expect from the sessions. Joanna works from a client centred approach, which means that therapy is guided by the client’s goals and at their own pace.
Joanna sees a range of issues that can impact on the connection between people, including communication difficulties, differences in expectations, cultural differences, trust difficulties, blended families, life changes, and adjusting to a first child. By assisting couples to understand how previous experiences can have a flow on effect in current relationships, and how to effectively communicate and support each person’s needs, she helps them develop a deeper understanding of each other and a deeper connection within the relationship.
