Joanna Robinson
Psychotherapist

Joanna Robinson

Joanna Robinson is a qualified psychotherapist and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP registered member 379153). She is new to Priory Hospital Hayes Grove and works as a one-to-one psychotherapist within the Cedar Therapy Centre.

Immediately prior to this role she was working in three part-time positions, namely as an adult psychological therapist with Central and North West London NHS Trust, as a child psychotherapist in a primary school and as a private psychotherapist in the community. 

Training

Joanna graduated from the school of Cognitive Sciences at the University of Sussex in 2002 with a BA (Hons) in Philosophy, with additional modules in cognitive development. She began her career in the Youth Offending Sector supporting children and young people to make positive changes in their lives by addressing their psychological health, problematic behaviour and any substance misuse. She completed specialist training in youth offending interventions (Open University, 2008) as well as a postgraduate diploma in psychology (Open University, 2013). Joanna subsequently moved in to the Adult Offending Sector, specifically forensic mental health, and completed further specialist training in forensic psychology, graduating from University of Coventry with a postgraduate certificate in 2015.

A dominant interest in the role of psychological functioning and wellbeing as a protective factor against negative life outcomes, as well as a means to restore balance after adverse life experiences, prompted Joanna to begin working in an NHS mental health team providing short and long-term psychological therapy.  During this time she completed specialist training in counselling and psychotherapy, graduating from the University of East London in 2019 and becoming a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP registered member 379153).

In addition to working as a psychological therapist in the NHS, Joanna has worked as a private psychotherapist and school counsellor. She has supported a range of clients including children, adolescents, adults and families. She has worked collaboratively and within a range of services, including local authority, Social Care, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS), schools, the NHS, substance misuse services, youth services and the private sector.

I am warm and approachable, keen to hear your experiences and committed to helping you find your own solutions. My core training is in integrative psychotherapy, which means I have studied different types of therapy and can draw on these to tailor my therapeutic support to your individual preferences and needs. Although I use a variety of therapy styles, I mainly draw on person-centred therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), psychodynamic techniques, narrative therapy and mindfulness. I integrate these therapeutic styles within the framework of Egan's Skilled Helper model, which guides clients through the process of problem exploration, goal identification and practical action. Whatever your situation, I am interested in your experiences and keen to work collaboratively with you to find your own pathway forward. I will give you my full attention and listen with empathy and without judgement or prejudice.
