Dr Joanna Harvey
BA (Hons), MSc, DPsych
Joanna is a Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) Registered Psychologist and completed her Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at City University of London in 2016. During this time, she spent two years on specialist placement with the Maudsley Hospital Eating Disorders Service. Currently, Joanna works at the Vincent Square Eating Disorder Service, delivering evidence-based psychological therapies in both an inpatient and outpatient setting. She is currently working towards accreditation in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and has completed training in the Maudsley Model of Treatment for Adults with Anorexia Nervosa (MANTRA). Joanna has extensive experience of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and CAT for the treatment of a wide range of mental health difficulties. In addition to her clinical work, she has carried out research into Orthorexia Nervosa and the role of identity in eating disorders.
Joanna also has experience of working in primary care settings, treating depression, anxiety, panic attacks and relationship difficulties from an integrative approach. Her previous experience includes long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy for personality disorders and relational difficulties. Prior to undertaking her doctoral training in Counselling Psychology, Joanna worked in corporate communications. This initially sparked her interest in working with burn-out and helping clients to achieve a greater sense of balance and wellbeing in their lives.
In her clinical work, Joanna describes herself as a relational practitioner. She takes an integrative approach to therapy, drawing on her knowledge of different theoretical models to meet the needs of the individual and engender change. Whilst her practice is informed by evidence-based therapies, Joanna prizes the therapeutic relationship and endeavours to create a safe and supportive space for her clients to explore their difficulties.
