Johanna Perfect

Psychotherapist

Whether you are looking for relief from distressing symptoms, seeking to change patterns that have been with you for a long time, or both, I will provide a respectful space in which we can work together towards the changes you seek.

At times in our lives our familiar ways of being with ourselves and responding to others just don’t seem to work well for us anymore.  Talking to someone outside your circle of family and friends can be enormously valuable and can lead to new and creative ways of being.

  • identity crisis
  • spiritual or existential crisis

 

Post-natal depression and anxiety

I am highly experienced working with pregnant clients and new parents, particularly with people facing the daily challenges of pre-natal and post-natal depression and anxiety and/or the ongoing effects of birth trauma.

Pre-crawling babies are welcome in sessions.

Therapeutic Approach

I work in a collaborative, relationship-focussed way to provide a therapeutic space in which new ways of being can emerge.
