About me and my therapy practice

I offer a compassionate, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to explore whatever your need is right now.  As both a Gestalt and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) practitioner, I encourage a gentle awareness of how we are in the present moment - this is where change can take place.

I work collaboratively, supporting clients to discover more of who and how they are.  Alongside talking and being heard, this could involve experimenting with posture, breath, movement, voice - building awareness of how we may be holding ourselves back, and of where our resources may be lying hidden.

I am trained in person centred counselling, Gestalt psychotherapy and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy.  My work is nourished by my daily mindfulness meditation practice.

I work with students, adults, individuals and groups. In addition to my private work, I work for a Winchester based adult counselling service, and a Hampshire sixth form college, so have experience of working with clients aged 16 and above.    I am also on the team at New Forest Mindfulness, and have experience of delivering the 8 week Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy course. 

As a Gestalt therapist, I believe relationship is where we learn about ourselves and grow, and finding the right therapist is very important. Please get in touch if you'd like an "introductory" session. Here we can get a feel for working together, and explore a little of what leads you to therapy. For this, I charge £25. If we each decide to work together, we commit to a day and time to meet weekly for the duration of your therapy.
