DR JOANNE STORR
I started working in mental health in 2004 and have worked in a range of services, such as forensic secure services, community mental health teams, acute services, and services for those diagnosed with life-limiting illnesses and those struggling to cope with bereavement.
My interests are in helping those struggling with mental health difficulties to find a path to a place where they can feel more comfortable within themselves and potentially with others around them.
I have received further training in many areas such as, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). In addition, to this I have been trained in many modes of therapy, from CBT, CAT, systemic, psychodynamic and can adapt my approach to support your needs and requirements.
I am happy and comfortable to work with a range of difficulties from depression, anxiety and eating disorder to adjustment difficulties arising from life-limiting illnesses that are causing distress and bereavements that remain unresolved or too painful to come to terms with following the normal process of grieving.
Currently, I work full-time in Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust (BHFT) within a service delivering Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and Mentalization-Based Therapy. These are treatments evidence-based for those with complex personality difficulties. Prior to this I worked in acute services within Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (SABP) providing therapy and consultation for a range of acute mental health needs.
