I have a practice in Wiltshire where I live and in London which is my homeland.
I offer a depth of seeing and listening that reaches into that central ring where depression, anxiety, fear and loss are often experienced alone. When we feel troubled, what we seek and most need, is a place of retreat, of quietly sharing a burdened mind and heart, sharing our feelings and thoughts in a supportive and inquisitive space. Here we can explore what isn’t working in our lives or relationships, where we can work with another to help find the resolutions we need to make in order to move on.
I work with you to understand the meaning of your internal world and to help you develop the skills necessary to make the changes that make sense to you. Together we can gently begin the journey of healing, creating space to find that centre within.
I work with adults and couples with a broad range of issues using a Gestalt orientation, bringing the present “here and now” into the therapy. Through the process of counselling or therapy, you can gain greater self-awareness.
Imagine there is an invisible web that connects us with ourselves, with those we are in relationship with, then we can sense when we are in distress and when those we care about are upset or happy and content. If we exist in our world through this interactive web connecting us to ourselves and each other then in Gestalt therapy, being fully present in the therapy session, involves the therapist being open to whatever is happening and paying attention to that invisible web.
