Joanna Gollins, MA, MBACP, UKCP
I have worked for over 20 years as a Transpersonal Psychotherapist in High Wycombe. I offer a confidential, non judgemental and deeply respectful service.
My training is an Integrative model. This allows me to draw from a wealth of knowledge, training and experience from different therapeutic schools, and I can therefore tailor each session to your individual needs.
My work is primarily through talking, but I find working creatively can help you to access deeper levels of awareness. My work can include when appropriate, dream exploration, drawing, relaxation and meditation.
May I suggest that if you think you may be interested in having some counselling that you make an appointment for an initial session, where we can discuss your problem and how we might work together should you wish to proceed. There would be no obligation to continue.
I offer appointments during on week days between 09.30 and 05.30
My practice is within walking distance from the centre of High Wycombe. It is on all major bus routes along the A40, and within a 15 minute walk from the railway station.
I work in a secluded, private location, with free off street parking.
