About

As a Counselling Psychologist I am passionate about the work I do and the people I see. I enjoy working collaboratively with clients, finding understanding of their difficulties from their perspective, so that I can tailor therapy treatment to suit each unique individual. No one shoe fits all in therapy! 

I believe that we all come across difficulties during our lives, but that if we collaborate to tailor therapy to your individual needs, you will develop a greater understanding of your inner world, and we can create a personal road-map for you which will show you the way forward, so you can overcome the challenges you face in the outside world.

I do truly want clients to have a fulfilled life and not to have to be in therapy longer than needed. I also understand the financial demands of our day and age and as such I like to practice mainly within a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) framework (which is generally shorter-term therapy with sustainable change). I am also trained in psychodynamic and mindfulness-based approaches and do not always use CBT as a stand alone treatment but integrated with other treatments. As my client in our therapeutic alliance, I think you deserve an expert service and as such will work with you in understanding your thoughts and related behaviours. As a naturally empathetic person, I empathise with the constraints of our lives and the difficulties we all face, and try to find techniques, skills and tools that fit with your strengths in helping you overcome difficulty and supporting you through any future trigger events.

As with GP’s, when we walk into our appointment, we trust that the GP is an expert in their field and that we would like to walk out with a clear indication of our problems, what medication to take, how many times a day etc. My hope is that I could give you the same type of service. I see my integrated approach as somewhat of an educational process, and as such will develop with you a series of skills, insights, and strategies that you can apply in your current situation and any future reoccurrences. As an expert in the field I would like to be able to give you the tools from my toolkit so that you can go out into the world and work on any problem areas that may come up in your sessions to not only improve your thoughts, but your behaviours and feelings and in the grand scheme of things, your quality of life.

I came to Juandri a couple of months ago, after years of therapy it was a surprise to me to be told that she didn't want me in therapy forever. She seemed to think that we could work through problems that I have had my entire life long and that I wouldn't HAVE to be in therapy for forever. I was apprehensive To say the least. But I am happy to say I am now officially done with my therapy. I have worked through layers of problems that I didn’t know could have solutions, and I have a new found confidence that if any of these ever came up again, that I not only have the “tools” (as she calls them) to work through them, but that I now have the ability and awareness to understand my triggers and would be able to cope with them. I also know that should anything new ever arise, that I can always approach her for help.

I just started seeing Juandri, so far so good. Very approachable and easy to talk to. Very comforting.

I am currently seeing Juandri to help me with anxiety, so far I have been very impressed. Juandri’s approach to treatment is tailored to the individual and what she skillfully perceives to be the key issues, rather than trying to apply a generic one size fits all approach as some therapists do. Juandri is personable and professional. She provides sessions in a comfortable, professional and conveniently located setting.

Juandri is the best therapist I have seen. I was referred to Juandri after an episode of anxiety and depression after a series of repeated relationships ship problems and hitting a point in my career where I wanted a complete change. Juandri has helped me piece together why I am stuck in relationship patterns and the circumstances surrounding my career choices which have made me unhappy. Juandri is always recommending amazing books and things to read online, which are always exactly on point in relation to my circumstances. I had tried two other therapists prior to Juandri but never stuck with them due to feeling they were not truly engaged or understood my issues, Juandri has changed that! She has been totally flexible in terms of fitting around my schedule and would rather re-schedule an appointment than see me for the sake of it. I would recommend Juandri to anyone looking for some guidance in terms of relationships, career changes, dealing with childhood trauma and self esteem issues. Juandri goes above and beyond outside of our sessions and will send me relevant information as and when she comes across new material which may help me. am really looking forward to continuing my journey with her!

Hi Juandri, thank you for the session yesterday. I thought about what you said and how you explained the ABC model to me, no one has ever put it into perspective for me like this before, and I have also read the articles you sent me and it really resonated with me. For once I am feeling optimistic about therapy and I feel like we got further in one sesseion than I ever have in my therapy before

Settled my anxiety and made me feel confident that if feelings like I was experiencing then return, I can deal with them

I was very apprehensive about therapy however, Juandri made me feel very comfortable immediately. She changed my view on mental health and psychology. She helped me through one of the most confusing and difficult phases of my life. She was a constant empathetic presence, she would check on me when I felt too low to show up to therapy and she helped me understand my emotions and behaviours and left me with better coping behaviours. If ever something came up again I would feel comfortable to know I have enough understand to deal with my difficulties, but if not, I would choose to go back to her. Thank you for making my story feel heard and understood.
