Psychodynamic Counselling & Psychotherapy and CBT in the City of London and Buckinghamshire

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, I am continuing to facilitate sessions online via Skype, Zoom and Telephone. I have also resumed face to face sessions, following strict government and practice guidelines, to minimize the risk of virus contamination and transmission. Precautionary measures are put in place in the practice, and in the consulting room, to minimise the risk of spreading the virus. Please feel free to request further information about this.

    My name is Dr Joyline Gozho. I am a highly experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor & Psychotherapist (specializing in individual and couples), and CBT Practitioner. I have worked extensively in all of these capacities, helping people with a wide range of problems and difficulties. I am registered with UKCP as a Psychotherapist. I trust that by browsing my site, you will have a better understanding of what therapy is, the different types of therapies that I offer (Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Couples Therapy), and consider whether I can be of any help to you or your loved one.

    Apart from being a Counsellor and Psychotherapist, I am a Lecturer at Birkbeck University of London where I teach on the Msc in Adult Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy Course.

    I tailor therapy to suit my clients’ needs. I am highly experienced and use Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) modalities. I also work with couples who may be going through some difficulties in their relationship and seeking professional help to navigate their way in their relationship. My approach for couples work is informed by the Bader- Pearson model, which has its origins in psychoanalytic and attachment theories. I am therefore able to resourcefully draw on principles from any of these modalities to suit your needs. In the initial consultation session, we will explore your difficulties, and identify the best way forward. I work on an open-ended basis, or for an agreed time period. I also offer one off consultative therapy sessions which are highly useful to people with demanding lifestyles, and unable to commit to regular psychotherapy sessions.

    I help clients who experience difficulties with:
  • Stress
  • Relationship issues-trust, dependency, rejection, fear of commitment, infidelity, relationship breakdown, separation, divorce
  • Panic Attacks
  • Anxiety
  • Depression and low mood
  • Addiction and dependency
  • Anger
  • Guilt
  • Shame
  • Rejection
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Major life decisions
  • Eating disorders
  • Chronic Physical ill health
  • Identity crisis
  • Poor self esteem
  • Childhood sexual, physical, emotional abuse and neglect (trauma)
  • Insomnia and fatigue
  • Post traumatic stress
  • Mood swings
  • Unresolved childhood issues
  • Fertility issues
  • Communication difficulties
  • Betrayal and Trust
  • Conflict resolution
  • Infidelity and cheating

    I practice from 2 different locations- Central London at Number42 Well Being Practice, Borough High Street and in Willen, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire. The London practice is right outside London Bridge Tube Station, taking the Borough High Street exit. The London practice is also close to Southwark Tube Station, Borough Tube Station, Waterloo station, Tower Bridge, South Bank, and Bermondsey. This London area is well serviced by National Rail, Underground, London Buses, and Taxis. The practice is also very close to the overhead trains stations, and the Thames River Boat Services. The Willen, Buckinghamshire psychotherapy and CBT practice is easily accessible by car, public transport and walking from nearby villages.
