Johanna Sartori BA (Hons) MBACP Accred.
Hi there, life can feel hard at times - sometimes we know the reason why, sometimes we have no idea. That's OK, my philosophy as a therapist is that we will work together to understand what is troubling you and to find a way through. If you don't know what the problem is, we'll work it out, and if you do know, then great, that's where we'll start. I'll be interested in what it's like being you right now, but also in your past, as I believe that we are the adults our childhoods teach us to be.
How does it work?
Well, I ask clients to come for an initial assessment session, which is your chance to tell me in confidence, what has led you to consider counselling; it is also an opportunity for us both to get to know each other and to see how you feel about working with me. If you decide to continue, I will offer you weekly individual sessions in which you are again, free to be entirely open and honest in the knowledge that whatever you say is confidential.
The sort of things that my clients typically want to look at include, but is not limited to, the following;
Dealing with abuse
Changes and upheavals
Issues around sexuality
Insecurity and low confidence
Unexplained physical ailments
I work both long term with clients who want to explore their feelings in depth, but also short term with clients looking to address a specific problem.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BA (Hons) in Integrative Relational Counselling, and am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am also a trained EMDR practitioner. I have previously worked for the Priory Group of Hospitals where I have experience of working with addiction, trauma and personality disorder amongst other things.
