Joanna Kelly PGDip/MA MBACP
City Psychotherapy Service
64 Great Eastern Street
I am a fully qualified couples counsellor and individual psychotherapist.
Problems with communication and relationships (with a partner, but also with a parent, a child, a friend, a colleague...) are often what bring people to therapy. Talking with a professionally trained “outsider” about what happens “inside” the relationship can help to clarify mixed feelings, find a balance between being together and being separate, and establish the right emotional distance between you and others.
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 safe, caring and confidential 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. Please contact me for an initial consultation to see if you feel I can help you.
