Dr. Joanna North
I have been a practicing psychotherapist for twenty five years working with children, adults and families. Whilst I have expertise in working as a Child Psychologist and Psychotherapist and report writing, I also like to work with adults on a range of mental health conditions as well as coaching and development.
I have always been fascinated by models of psychotherapy and the science of psychology and how we can ‘change our minds’ and move on from crisis but also how we can make sense of difficulty in our lives so that we grow and develop rather than live in despair. We often need a period of help and support while we do this. I am very interested in helping people to live quality lives with a sense of wellbeing that is beyond income or status. I like to teach Mindfulness to clients as a way to help them find peace of mind but am qualified in many models of psychotherapy including EMDR, CBT and classical Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I have a Doctorate in Psychotherapy and although I have worked this year as an Associate Professor teaching psychotherapy to psychology undergraduates the focus of my work is in treatment of clients, assessment and report writing. I have written and published two books on treating children with behavioural difficulties and have a third book to be published this year focussing on Child Mental Health.
