About me and my therapy practice
Welcome. I am a gestalt psychotherapeutic counsellor and I can help you discover the change you want in your life so that you can live it in a more fulfilling way.
I offer individual counselling, whether short-term or more open-ended, for adults in the Eastbourne area, and online via Zoom the telephone.
As a Gestalt therapist, I believe we are each unique in the way we experience and see the world, and I see the relationship between the client and therapist as central to therapy.
Gestalt therapy focuses on helping you become more aware of your relational patterns - patterns that may be impacting your life in distressing ways - so that you can loosen their hold and discover alternative and more conscious ways of being.
Together we can create a safe therapeutic space that fits your unique needs, challenges and concerns, and that values and respects your individuality so that you can discover your capacity to create the change and growth you want in your life through deeper self-awareness and then through experimentation and self-expression.
My previous counselling experience is with a community counselling charity and a bereavement charity. I’ve also worked in education for many years, both teaching and researching, as well as in the private sector in publishing.
I hold a Post-Graduate Diploma from the University of Brighton. I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and ACTO (Association of Counselling & Therapy Online) and work in accordance with their ethical frameworks.
Feel free to get in touch to arrange an initial, no obligation, session where we can discuss your needs and get a sense of whether you’d like to meet more regularly.
