Dr Joanna Astill, Clinical Psychologist, Breakthrough Psychology Services
I am an experienced Clinical Psychologist, with many years experience in the NHS working in multi-disciplinary teams and offering supervision to a range of professionals including Community Psychiatrist Nurses, Social Workers, Support Workers and Occupational Therapists. I also offer supervision to Assistant Psychologists and qualified Clinical Psychologists. I am an affiliated supervisor with both Coventry University and The University of Birmingham for their Trainee Clinical Psychologists and offer both core and specialist placements to Trainees.
My specialist area is adult mental health, in particular complex trauma. I work using an integrative model and am particularly influenced by Attachment Theory and Dynamic Therapy, Cognitive Analytic Therapy, Adaptive Information Processing Model (i.e. EMDR) and CBT. I am also interested in sensorimotor psychotherapy and the role of the body as a whole in the healing process.
Please contact me for further information. I am based in Hinckley, Leicestershire but can also offer online or telephone supervision if appropriate.
