About me and my therapy practice

Gestalt therapy offers scope for creative expression work, particularly where words feel not enough, or indeed, too much. My approach recognises each person brings their own unique and individual experiences to therapy.

I work with a very wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety, anger, bereavement. I work with self esteem issues that are often brought about through bullying, undue parental criticism, and other adverse childhood experiences.

I have a particular background in working with women who have experienced abuse and trauma that includes physical and sexual assault and I have worked with individuals working through substance abuse; and also for several years, now, I have worked with women dealing with being trafficked and sold into modern day slavery.

I believe in the power of compassion and non-judgmental listening. You don't have to face your struggles alone - I'm here to walk alongside you on your journey, from a nonjudgemental position helping you make sense of your experiences and the world you have lived in.

If you're feeling overwhelmed, confused, or anxious, know that you're not alone. It's understandable to feel scared, depressed, or sad, and it can be difficult to know where to start on the path towards healing. That's why I offer a warm and supportive therapeutic space where you can feel heard, seen, and understood.

Practice description

I trained at The Gestalt Centre in London and this provides the underlying theoretical and clinical approach to my work. Additionally I have attended training work on Mindfulness which has some particular benefits for those who I work with. 

Through my experience and involvement with therapeutic yoga and body work I have promoted breath work with my clients, where appropriate. All this provides a range of unique and powerful tools for exploring and processing emotions, gaining insight into patterns of behaviour and thought, and fostering personal growth and transformation.

My first session

I offer a free introductory session during which you get a chance to ask questions and understand how we can work together. This is the time we can also set a day and time for a first appointment. 

Providing a first session has been booked, we will cover contract details, an intake form which will help me understand better what you are looking for and any other admin. This shouldn't take more than 15 minutes, after which the therapeutic part of the work will begin.
