Hannah Joll offers a confidential and non-judgemental space to speak freely and explore what brings each client to therapy. Hannah is trained to work integratively, meaning that her work draws on different theoretical positions as points of exploration. At the core of her clinical practice is a belief that unconscious patterns laid down by our early environment can shape our every day lives, sometimes causing distress. She works with clients to bring these patterns of thought and behaviour into awareness, paying attention to the particular in order to live more satisfactory lives.
With a background working in schools and lobbying, Hannah is interested in opening up a space for people to speak and be heard. Her work in schools and reading of Winnicott have led her to place an emphasis on the role of play in ordinary life. She works relationally to identify underlying patterns of behaviour which may be causing harm and to bring these to light. Her special interests include relationships, trauma, addiction and attachment.
Hannah is an integrative counsellor working in private practice at The Awareness Centre in Clapham as well as maintaining a practice in Highbury. She has an advanced diploma in integrative counselling, and is registered with the BACP. She is currently completing a second Master’s Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy and maintains clinical placements at Highbury Counselling Centre and the Psychosis Therapy Project in Brixton.
