Individual Sessions

The psyche is the deep and personal part of us that holds and organises our experiences. Because life is a difficult and often lonely journey, we can be bruised, hurt, confused or conflicted. Sometimes regularly. Sometimes daily. But always unmistakably.

Sessions on a one-to-one basis is a safe place where we can attend to our psyche, listen to our conflicts, express them rather than suppress them, and allow healing, restoration, and growth to occur. People Joanna has counselled include: 
 

  • Those seeking personal discernment and deeper self-awareness

  • Individuals in relationship facing communication breakdown and loss

  • Those who want to talk about self or sexual identity in a safe place

  • Individuals suffering from grief and loss 

  • Adult and child survivors of trauma and abuse

  • Children facing family transition (eg. divorce, relocation)

  • Individuals suffering from anxiety, anger, stress, depression, eating disorders

  • Individuals with developmental and/or behavioural problems

  • Caregivers of the sick, elderly or dying 

  • Those in the caring profession - eg. social workers, therapists, teachers.

 

She delivers art therapy for individuals who would simply like to embrace art as a therapy for personal growth, mindfulness and self-discovery.
