Relational therapy is a place to talk about anything that you want. To bring fears, worries, daily struggles, wonderings. I offer a unique relationship, centered around empathic curiosity that focuses solely on your well-being and growth. Through your stories and experiences, we look at your relationships with others in your life and how they have helped form you. We’ll work to understand the patterns of thoughts and feelings that make you so unique.

I work with clients who identify with, depression, anxiety, grief, life transitions, relationship challenges, self-esteem, and trauma. Relational therapy helps you to listen to your inner voice and intuition, to gradually feel more connected to how you feel and support you to make decisions or changes in your life.

Sometimes people come to therapy with a clear sense of what they need. If that’s you great! If you don’t, perhaps you’re confused, unsure or just struggling – that’s okay too. Therapy offers a fresh perspective and a chance to learn more about yourself. Together we’ll make sense of what is happening and find a way through.

About Joanne

Originally from the UK, I began my journey as a therapist in 2014 where i studied Psychotherapy in London UK for two years. I began working in private practice in 2019, training at Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy. I have since completed an additional trauma-informed somatic (body) certificate at the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute. I continue to receive ongoing clinical supervision.
