Joanna started her career supporting oncological patients at various stages of treatment. This sparked a fascination with body–mind interconnectedness.

Joanna is experienced in supporting people with various mental health difficulties, such as anxiety, depression, life crisis, trauma, and eating disorders. After moving to the UK, Joanna worked for the NHS Psychological Services, delivering psychodynamic psychotherapy. Joanna gained experience working therapeutically with eating disorders  in a specialist service in Oxford, where she trained in CBTE and then MANTRA at the Maudsley. Seeing many neurodiverse clients, Joanna focused on deepening her understanding of autism and ADHD, paying attention to the strengths as well as the challenges.

Joanna has a special interest in the role of the body in psychotherapy, seeing patterns of breathing, muscular tensions, and physical symptoms as messages from the unconscious. Joanna is experienced in using a psychodynamic approach and mindfulness to foster a deeper awareness of feelings, vulnerabilities, strengths, and inner conflicts.

Personally, Joanna enjoys everything that deepens her connection to nature and herself: wild camping, cold water swimming and yoga. Recently she has rediscovered a long forgotten love for drawing.
