10+ Years Post-Chartership Experience

Hi. I'm Joanne Stuart. I'm a chartered and registered clinical psychologist and an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) psychotherapist - I support individuals with their psychological wellbeing. I hold private sector experience as a clinical psychologist and a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) psychotherapist. My focus includes stress, as well as the specific issues encountered by men and women.

What to Expect

An introductory assessment session enables you to see if you feel comfortable with me, share what concerns you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and decide if therapy may benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange an initial assessment meeting in Highgate, London, Southgate, London or Highgate, London.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy concentrates on how your thoughts (cognitions) affect your feelings and actions. It identifies and addresses negative ideas that perpetuate the issues you experience. The objective of CBT is for you to have healthier thoughts and emotions.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) suggests cognitive behavioural therapy for anorexia nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder (BED), bipolar disorder, Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), bulimia nervosa, depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Psychology

Psychology is interested in you and your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. It offers you psychological treatments and mental wellbeing support. The objective of psychological therapy is to help you ease symptoms.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the problems you face. It considers your ideas, emotions and relevant moments in your life. Psychotherapy intends to help you develop or find appropriate methods of managing.

Thoughts on Mental Health

You could develop a phobia about anything - driving, water, tomatoes - you name it, there will be someone in the world that has developed a fear of it. There are some theories that suggest that some phobias are innate (i.e. you are born with them) - for example, a fear of snakes. Generally, however, phobias develop following on from a highly unpleasant experience involving a specific object or situation and heightened anxiety accompanying this. Anxiety is your brain's way of telling you to 'be aware' or that there is danger present. The next time you think of or encounter the object or situation, your brain remembers the unpleasant previous experience and you feel anxiety once more.

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"I guess it goes without saying that Joanne is a great listener and quickly tuned in to my issues and in particular helped me to recognise where I needed to change my mind-set. She was helpful in pointing me toward mechanisms for dealing with concerns that had become exaggerated in my thinking. Joanne cleverly structured our sessions to draw out various aspects of my anxieties and through that enabled me to arrive at a more logical and positive view of my experiences of the last eighteen months. I found her easy to talk to, even on the subjects I had found difficulty in properly facing on my own. Importantly, she was constructive, supportive and showed me a path to thinking more clearly about a challenging phase of my life."
