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.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
