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 the present moment, working alongside clients to explore whatever it is that brings them to therapy.

I work creatively and collaboratively, supporting clients to explore their uniqueness. Alongside talking, this could involve experimenting with posture, breath, movement, voice; or drawing, using sand tray, journaling, poetry...

As holistic therapies, Gestalt and MBCT value all of our experience, just as it is – the dark and the light, the messy and the tidy. In therapy we explore how and who we are, discover more of ourselves, and uncover who we may become.

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 see clients at the Olive Branch in Winchester.  I teach the 8 week MBCT course at New Forest Mindfulness in Brockenhurst. And I have worked with Trinity Winchester Eating Disorder Service as a peer group facilitator, working with those in recovery, their families and friends.

As a Gestalt therapist, I believe relationship is where we find ourselves and grow, so 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.
