Johanna Lakin MA, (MNCS, Accred)
I am a qualified Person-Centred Experiential psychotherapist educated to masters level. I will provide you a non judgemental, accepting and empathic environment, where we can look more closely at the distress you are feeling and how it is impacting your life. We will explore what your needs are and with that your decisions and potential for growth can become clearer and more fully formed. By creating a trusting therapeutic relationship, we can navigate your thoughts, feelings and experiences (past and present) to better understand how they have worked together to form your understanding of who you are and how you perceive yourself in the world.
I seek to be curious to the experiences you have had which have caused you to feel disconnected from yourself, your emotions and perhaps from those around you. In my experience, it is this disconnection that is at the root of all emotional distress and therefore we will dedicate time to explore and better understand it.
It is through this shared curiosity, exploration and discovery as therapist and client, that we can start to work to re-engage with your feelings, learn to hear what they are communicating and with time, allow you to become reacquainted with your authenticity.
If you would like to reach out, call or email me where we can arrange a free initial session.
