Joanne facilitates therapeutic conversations that opens up space to reflect and explore what is important to you and what you accord value to, by making meaning of your emotional, behaviours and thought processes, through understanding how problems effect the relationships you have with yourself and others. The insight that Joanne has, has led to an understanding that when your core relational needs/values are compromised, this usually is the cause for conflict. ​

I specialise in women's health issues, and see individuals and couples impacted by fertility-related challenges, adjustment to parenthood, perimenopause and menopause, and gynaecological/endocrinological issues. My clients often present with mental health challenges including anxiety, low mood, trauma; and stress/burnout. Other common challenges are relationship issues, career/job stress, issues with identity and life purpose. My clients want to better understand the often confusing mix of factors contributing to their stuckness and to learn science-based tools to reduce suffering and help them thrive.

Therapy is a specialized conversation, which is both a science and an art. It creates a deep relational connection and a safe space, where we can heal, grow stronger, or just move forward. We do this by discovering who we are, what we want, and how to get there. I am passionate about meeting people, journeying with them, facilitating change, and watching as they become more at ease within themself, with others, their world, and spirituality.

Relational poverty is all around us, showing up inside us: self-bullying talk (at the roots of low self-esteem and depression); between us and others (Whanaungatanga: inter-personal difficulties, work-place stress and relationship problems); as well us at a psycho-spiritual level (Wairuatanga): feeling alone and unconnected spiritually to a deity or higher power. I offer support in all of these areas of wellbeing, through counselling, supervision and professional development training around attachment issues which include anxiety, stress, depression, relationship issues, grief and loss, and trauma.

Sometimes we all need the space to take time out to reflect on what's going on with us; or to talk to someone outside our immediate family and friends, a trained and experienced professional, who can assist us to think and feel deeper into our life, work and relationships. As we do this we begin to feel more human, more in balance and more able to warm up to our own spontaneity, vitality and creativity in response to what is required- be it coming to some resolutions, developing or strengthening aspects of ourselves, moving forward, or 'leaning into' our lives in a more dynamic or committed way. Therapy assists.
