    About Joanna

    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.

    How many years counselling experience do you have?

    More than 10 years

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?
    1. Rapport building
    2. An interest in a wide range of presentations and conditions
    3. Being open to diversity, including philosophies, religions and cultures
    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    Seeing people be really engaged in the process and be on board with being open – that way you know even when they’ve finished therapy, they can continue this way if they wish to.

    What’s an example of a couple you have helped the most?

    A couple who had been so committed to attending regularly, and who were totally open to hearing how their approaches towards each other would need to be different. Whilst of course, there was sometimes defensiveness, their trust in my goal (which is their goal) really allowed them to make some amazing changes.
