About me and my therapy practice

My training is in Gestalt, a holistic form of therapy with one simple aim. To maximise your self awareness. Alongside talking therapy, I use a range of techniques to help you creatively explore the world as you experience it. These might include body process, role play, visualisation and internal dialogue. My aim is to raise your awareness of what is happening for you at the present moment and also what processes from the past are holding you back from becoming the person you long to be. Once you are in touch with this potentially hidden aspect of your identity, I will provide you with a safe space in which to challenge your unhelpful habits and experiment with new perspectives and behaviours to bring about a deep and lasting transformation.

Practice description

My clinical experience includes working with people suffering from anxiety, depression, trauma, shame, low self-esteem, bereavement, identity issues, loneliness, anger management, OCD, addiction, family conflict, relationship and career problems. I have a number of clients in the media and experience in treating clients from the creative industries, having worked as a counsellor specialising in actors and musicians at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Previously I directed documentaries for TV where I gained valuable insight into the triumphs and pitfalls of producing and performing in the public eye.
