Joanna Kelly MA/PGdip/ MBACP
I am an experienced, fully qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist. I work with Couples, offering couple relationship counselling and individuals offering psychodynamic psychotherapy.
I specialise in problems with relationships, whether that be with a partner, parent or with a colleague...Issues with communication can often be the thing that brings people to therapy.
Feelings of anxiety, depression or mixed emotions can be talked about in a totally confidential setting.
In my work with individuals and couples, I focus on everyday interactions and conflicts, recurrent behaviour patterns, and the links to the past which help to understand them. Together we explore the conscious dynamics at play and listen for the less conscious material which might emerge and enable you to move on.
Weekly sessions take place in a comfortable and safe environment, where mutual trust allows words to be spoken and fears, often hidden, to be overcome.
I offer weekly sessions currently in Old Street, East London. A short walk from Old street tube.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at Tavistock Relationships (TR) in London as a relationship counsellor, there I gained a post-graduate diploma in psychodynamic psychotherapy for individuals and couples.
I then went on to gain a Masters (MA) in psychodynamic psychotherapy for couples. During this intensive training and becoming a fully qualified couple psychotherapist and relationship counsellor I gained knowledge and experience in working with psychosexual issues in individuals and couple relationships.
I am a fully registered member of BACP and adhere to their code of ethics and confidentiality.
I work in private practice and at Tavistock Relationships, in central London, as a visiting clinician.
I am also able to offer Mentalisation based therapy for clients that may benefit from a shorter time-limited therapeutic approach. I will be offering on-line therapy from August.
