Dr Joanna Nowill CPsycol, MBACP, HPC Registered
I provide one-to-one therapy and counselling to adults. I treat all kinds of psychological problems such as depression, anxiety, stress, OCD, phobia, relationship difficulties, post-traumatic stress disorder and so on. I have worked part-time in the NHS in a health psychology department and understand the intimate links between health conditions and psychological problems.
My therapeutic approach tends to be integrative. I use a lot of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) but always from a person-centred perspective. As far as I am concerned, the client is the expert on their condition; I am there as a facilitator to help them untangle themselves and to help them towards a more rewarding journey in life. I believe in the power of 'mindfulness' - being truly present - and use some techniques from mindfulness practice in my work. I also use EMDR which is highly effective for PTSD and anxiety.
I work from our clinic situated behind the Nuffield Hospital, Cheltenham, at Pure Offices. Plenty of parking.
