I take an integrated approach using therapies such as psychoanalysis, person-centred, CBT and Gestalt Therapy.
There are times in our lives when we get that sinking feeling that something is not right. Such moments often follow major life events, such as grieving for a loved one, the break-up of a relationship, moving countries, facing health issues or even children leaving home and retirement. Other times, they appear from nowhere. Resulting feelings can be so pervasive that they impact our mental, emotional and physical well-being, creating conflict in relationships and impact our ability to function. They may also start manifesting in one’s seeking isolation, inability to see joy in life and can lead to depressive conditions.

I primarily practice person-centred therapy, which is tailored to the individual client’s unique needs and circumstances, but my approach is also informed by narrative, gestalt and existential therapies.
I am a counsellor, psychotherapist and former registered nurse, specialising in helping clients who are working 12-Step programmes for alcoholism or other substance use disorders (e.g.: AA, NA, MA, etc.) address some of the barriers they face, including depression, anxiety, stress, burnout, relationship issues, low self-esteem, and finding meaning and purpose in a fast-paced world. I have a holistic approach to my practice and believe a connection to the natural world and one another are essential ingredients to a thriving state of being.

I work with a gestalt therapy foundation and favour parts work (IFS), somatic psychotherapy, creativity and ACT.
Hey, I'm stoked you've stopped by! I'm Ess, an introverted, dance obsessed, spiritual being who will drop an F-bomb in solidarity or celebration. I'm genuinely interested in learning about you and hearing your story. I'm excited for you, to be more YOU! Whether that's supporting you to: express yourself more fully, learn tools to practice self-acceptance, work through past experiences so you can embrace you now, unlearn and relearn behaviours so you can thrive... While I have approx 10 years experience working in trauma/mental health, I'm currently focusing on working with folks curious about deeper self exploration + growth.

The core of my integrative trauma informed practice is Gestalt therapy including elements of Schema therapy, Internal Family Systems and Buddhist psychology.
My wealth of lived experiences including gender transition inform my collaborative client centred counselling approach. Whilst presenting issues may include depression, anxiety, identity incongruence, dysphoria, trauma, interpersonal challenges, addiction, loneliness, and more, I seek to work with the underlying causes as I believe that through addressing the root causes of the presenting symptoms that psychological wellbeing can be achieved without judgement or further pathologisation.

I focus on creating a strong, stable relationship using Gestalt therapy and Somatic Experiencing to allow you to explore the issues you are facing and gain the confidence to change the ways you connect to yourself and others.
Are you anxious or depressed, feeling isolated, lonely or overwhelmed? Are you struggling to manage some complicated emotional challenges? Maybe it’s difficult for you to get through a day without collapsing in an emotional heap. You may be dealing with the ending of an important relationship or you are struggling to come to terms with the death of someone you loved, feeling unable to cope with the grief you are experiencing. You may find it difficult to deal with a major life transition or with changes in your health or your body. Or maybe you just don’t know who you are anymore and you want more out of life.

I favour Gestalt approaches, Attachment Theory, Focusing, Existential and Somatic approaches aimed at bringing harmony to the mind, body and soul.
I work holistically and compassionately with experience relating to depression, anxiety and queer and trans issues. In addition to my affiliation with the LGBTQIA+ community I strive to offer inclusive, trauma-informed therapy to support people from a diverse range of backgrounds. I use integrated approaches guided by the needs and goals of each individual. By actively encouraging feedback, I aim to facilitate an open and caring environment to support people in gaining a deeper understanding of themselves and the life they want to create. I have an active interest in structural oppressions and their intersections with mental health.

My dual qualifications as Psychologist and Gestalt psychotherapist hones focus on what is important; your emotions, inner conflicts, relationships with others and your feelings about your self.
Life can be a constant effort to keep a hold on things and I want to help you sort this out with my decades of experience, knowledge spanning many areas, and deep empathy for your struggle. Not all clients and therapists are the right fit, so please review my calmmindpsychology youtube channel to see if we resonate. I am both a psychotherapist and psychologist so I tend to dive deep, but can also help you with current life crises. I work best with people who have already done some therapy and know that personal growth is difficult, sometimes hard, always ongoing but worth it as a way of becoming more authentic and available in life.

Relational Gestalt therapy is process-oriented, focussing on integrating the senses, body, emotions, and intellect.
Life offers us all challenges, sometimes huge, sometimes small, these challenges present themselves so that we may grow and in the process become wiser. I will support you to lean into your experiences rather than moving away from feelings, learning to befriend them and in the process develop a closer relationship with yourself and others. Developing emotional agility is a natural outcome of therapy that provides agency for change. Issues include parenting, relationships, depression, anxiety, life direction, addiction and trauma.

If you are feeling overwhelmed, tired, hopeless or lacking joy; like your emotions are uncontrollable or that they do not match with reality; that your worry is getting out of hand or that there is no longer any point, then it might be a good time to seek some support. ​ We are social creatures, and despite what our modern society might have us believe, we all need human connection to function. Seeking support is a huge sign of strength – the strength to actually reach out and let someone in, in order to start the healing process. ​ If you can relate to this or if you have set yourself a personal development goal please reach out.

Seeking help from a psychologist could be overwhelming and stressful. It may be seen as a sign of weakness or suggest that there is something wrong with the person. My professional aim is to assist the person seeking help in a collaborative, compassionate and authentic manner, in a therapeutic space where personal issues are viewed as opportunities to discover personal strengths, to foster personal growth and improve quality of life. I am deeply committed to empower individuals in overcoming the social stigma associated with mental health issues and I value each person’s uniqueness during their engagement in mental health recovery.

Gestalt Counsellors
Gestalt therapy seeks to integrate the client's behaviors, feelings, and thinking, so that their intentions and actions may be aligned for optimal mental health. The therapist will help the client become more self-aware, to live more in the present, and to assume more responsibility for taking care of themself. Techniques of gestalt therapy include confrontation, dream analysis, and role playing.
