Joanna Tobitt PGDip, BPC, MBACP Psychodynamic Counsellor
I am a BPC Accredited and BACP Registered Counsellor.I work with adults, experiencing mild to severe psychological problems. I work in psychodynamic modality, which means that I assist in gaining undertsanding of how past affects your current life.
Psychotherapy, in general, aims at finding new perspective on things and helping you implement change in areas of your life, where you feel change is due. So, if you feel, that you might benefit from this type of work- get in touch.
I see clients in my private practice in Welwyn Garden City for a regular, once weekly, 50 minutes sessions. I offer long, open ended therapy and short term treatments.
Before we engage in therapy I would invite you for an assesment, lasting arround an hour.This is to determine your therapy goals and whether this type of work, best suit your needs.
I am experienced in assisting my clients with a wide range of mental healht issues, from bereavement, anxiety, identity and sexuality issues to low spectrum bi-polar disorders and more severe, mental effects of physical and emotional abuse.
