Gestalt Psychotherapy is an approach that respects and is interested in the individual's way of being in the world. The relationship between the client and therapist is central to the therapeutic process. I endeavour to create a climate of safety, support and challenge from which the client can explore their difficulties and become more aware of their patterns and ways in which they may be interrupting or blocking the flow of their life. From this place I believe new choices and possibilities for change emerge. Gestalt Psychotherapy works with the whole person, their thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
Gestalt Psychotherapy lends itself to working with a broad range of presenting problems. I work principally as a Gestalt Psychotherapist and integrate aspects of Object Relational and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies to support change. My extensive training and experience in mental health work together with many years of working as a counsellor and psychotherapist in private practice enable me to work with nearly all presenting difficulties. These range from mood disorders such as depression, through to more deep seated personality disorders as well as trauma, loss, emotional distress, bereavement, anger management, and relationship difficulties.
