Get to know us - Joanne Videtsky
At our practice in Oxford Circus (W1W), all of our therapists are qualified psychologists, psychotherapists or counsellors. They are registered with several professional bodies, including the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the British Psychological Society (BPS), as well as, BACP, UKCP and BABCP. They use CBT (Cognitive behavioral therapy), psychodynamic, humanistic and integrative approaches, tailored around your needs to help you deal with your challenges and reach your goals.
Please meet our team
I am a Clinical Psychologist, registered with the HCPC, and have worked as a therapist and a University lecturer and supervisor since 2003. I believe strongly in the power of the therapeutic process to facilitate healing and growth and to support us in finding more helpful ways of thinking and behaving. I am very interested in the ways in which we story our lives, and how problem stories take hold. I feel inspired by working with people to create new paths that hold possibility and hope for a future that they wish for.
I use an integrative approach that is tailored to the needs of my client. I tend to use a combination of Narrative, Person-centred, CBT, Mindfulness and Systemic approaches. The therapeutic relationship is central to our process, and it is important to me that this is a safe, gentle, collaborative and engaged space.
I have wide-ranging knowledge and experience in the field. I have worked extensively with people experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, big life adjustments (such as divorce or loss), bereavement, work stresses, self-esteem challenges and those in need of parenting support. I have also worked a lot with couples to support relationship difficulties, navigate changes or strengthen aspects of their relationship.
