Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
JoAnne has been a practicing therapist for 35 years. Originally trained as a Gestalt therapist, she uses a combination of therapies to produce healing, including EMDR; Guided Visualization; Somatic Experiencing, the work of Peter Levine for recovery from trauma; and Family Constellation Work. She is committed to providing a safe space in which to heal ourselves and our relationships. In 2000 JoAnne was introduced to the work of Bert Hellinger and undertook extensive training with him and other teachers of this ground-breaking work. She became convinced that many of our symptoms, psychological and physical, are the result of entanglements with others in the family system out of a hidden loyalty and “blind love”. By using constellations to bring these alliances to light, they can be brought to resolution, producing healing on a deeper level than is otherwise possible.
