Joanna Cates

Clinical psychologist

Joanna is a clinical psychologist and fascinated by meaning - what it is and how we find it.

She is interested from both a professional and a personal perspective. Whilst working in NHS mental health services she found a large proportion of patients referred to the service with symptoms of anxiety and depression were actually suffering from an acute sense of meaninglessness in their lives.

As a curious human being, she is interested from a personal perspective too and believes that the most important question that any of us will have to answer is, what is the meaning of my life?
