The focus of psychological therapy is to enable you to generate solutions to your issues that are more helpful than the ways you have been dealing with them so far. We will work as a team to identify and understand issues in terms of the relationship between your thoughts, beliefs, feelings and behavior. The approach usually focuses on the present difficulties, and relies on us developing a shared view of your problem. Based on the understanding of your difficulties we will work together to identify goals and agree time-limited therapy goals and strategies which are carefully monitored and evaluated.
Your treatment therapy involves using your time between sessions practicing your therapeutic gains for example small tasks. Typically, sessions are weekly and last 50 minutes. We will agree a number of sessions, usually between 8 to 16. After the completion of treatment, here at the Health Psychology Clinic we usually suggest a booster session to maintain the therapeutic gains and achieve further progress in future.
Thank you! You helped me with my panic attacks and feeling alive again. I really appreciate what you have done! Without your support I may possibly have given up.
I had terrible panic attack, I was shaking to my way to work and I couldn’t breathe. After few sessions with Joanna all my symptoms reduced and felt already better.
I visited Joanna last year for a health problem with my stomach, I had clear health exams and my doctor said it caused from work stress. I referred to Joanna and started psychotherapy with health psychology and cognitive behaviour therapy. After six sessions I felt more balanced and I am in my way to have my healthy body back.
