About Eli

therapy

Psychodynamic therapy is an umbrella term which describes all models of the mind that are primarily concerned with unconscious processes. It remains curious about the individual’s experience(s), rather than offering generic understandings. The duration and content of the therapy is therefore uniquely determined by the clients and their needs.

Psychosexual therapy is a specialisation within psychotherapy which addresses specific concerns and distress related to sexuality. It focuses on both the physical and the psychological with well-qualified practitioners having knowledge of both. 

SPECIALITIES

Dr H. Eli Joubert specialises in helping people through the use of Psychodynamic therapies to uncover unconscious conflicts.

Through the use of these techniques, he is able to help patients move forward and deal with the problems they are facing. He has particular clinical interests in General Adult Mental Health, the Psychology of Men and Masculinities, Psychosexual Therapy and Gender Dysphoria and Transgenderism.

General Adult Mental Health

Many people experience difficulties with either feeling low or experiencing raised levels of anxiety. This might be as a result of many influences, which could include:

  • Relationship difficulties
  • Strain resulting from work, or a feeling that it lacks meaning and purpose
  • Going through a transitional period in life
  • Having to make important decisions
  • Substance misuse

Medium term psychotherapy has been an effective way to help people address these problems and is something Dr H. Eli Joubert commonly uses in his clinical practice, often in addition to anti-depressant medication (although this is a choice and is not a required course of treatment).

Rather than using a pure Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach, he favours a combination of CBT, Behavioural, Psychodynamic, Systemic and Psycho-Educational theories and practices in helping people to deal with their challenges. He has found this to be an effective way to work with patients and, with more than 10 years clinical experience in this area, he has a well established history of this approach to clinical practice.

Psychosexual Therapy

The clinical field of Psychosexual Therapy, also known as PST or sex therapy, helps people overcome sex-related problems and relationship difficulties. This can include:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low libido
  • Difficulty achieving orgasm
  • Pain during sex
  • Anxiety during sex
  • Ejaculatory difficulties
  • Other common sexual problems

It also focusses on helping with other conditions such as compulsive masturbation or sexual activity which individuals experience as distressing, or problematic sexual behaviour such as distressing paraphillias.

Dr H. Eli Joubert has more than 10 years of clinical experience working in this area. He focusses on a positive clinical approach to sexual practices. All sexual practices which are legal and between consenting adults and don’t cause distress are celebrated in his clinical approach.

He holds the professional qualification in Psychosexual Therapy – EFS/ESSM Certified Psycho-Sexologist. He was also a past committee member of BPS Section of Psychology of Sexuality and a council member of the British Society for Sexual Medicine

He has also had several appropriate professional registrations and has given conference presentations and training in this area regularly.

Gender Dysphoria

Gender dysphoria, sometimes known as gender incongruence, is a condition where a person experiences discomfort or distress because their gender identity (a person’s own sense of their gender) does not match their biological sex (their biological sex as assigned at birth, depending on the appearance of the genitals).

Transgenderism is when a person establishes a permanent identity with the opposite gender to their biological sex. Transgender men and women wish to make a transition from their biological sex to that of their gender identity, with some type of medical alteration (gender reassignment therapy) to their body.

Dr H. Eli Joubert is currently Clinical Lead and Consultant Clinical Psychologist at Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and has more than 8 years clinical experience in this area. He holds appropriate professional registrations and also has Medico-legal experience working with Transgender prisoners.

He has regularly provided diagnostic reports and professional opinion for surgery, recommendations for HRT and appropriate documents for passports.

He is included on the List of Specialists in the Field of Gender Dysphoria and can provide appropriate documentation for a Gender Recognition Certificate.

Dr H Eli Joubert is now practicing out of Leeds and London and can see patients in both locations.

Supervision

Dr H. Eli Joubert has over 8 years of experience in supervising the work of other psychologists.

He specialises in providing advice, support and supervision for psychologists whilst they develop their own skills and experience and provides this in a number of ways, including hands on and remote guidance.

Psychology of Men and Masculinities

Traditionally our culture has meant that men do not feel they are allowed to be overly emotionally expressive. Men are not allowed to feel vulnerable, lonely, sad or any other kind of emotion not deemed masculine. Indeed men are only allowed to be happy or angry. As a result, men have particular psychological needs and often these are expressed in common ways.

Dr H. Eli Joubert has worked with men clinically in different contexts for more than 10 years to help them deal with the challenges they face. He has been involved in professional organisations such as APA Div 51, Psychology Of Men and Masculinities and currently he is also on the founding committee of the BPS Section Of Male Psychology.

He has also written a number of published works in this area
