Hello and welcome to my site. Little did I realise how much my life would change during my journey to becoming a qualified Gestalt psychotherapist, recovering from a life-changing illness 22 years ago. It meant that I could not live as I was living anymore. From a background in the military, and being involved in business and community events to becoming a Gestalt therapist was a monumental shift in leaving the old way of life behind and being able to explore an alternative way of living my truth. I use this lived experience in my work as a therapist with people of all ages and ethnicity.

People come to see me for many reasons, including anxiety, traumatic experiences, stress, grief, relationship difficulties and depression. In particular, I specialise in helping clients with chronic stress and anxiety in a friendly and non-judgmental way. For many, anxiety isn't just about feeling anxious - having symptoms - it's also about a pervading sense of unease about their place in the world. It can show up as an underlying sense of "doom" which never seems to go away completely. My experience is that anxiety sufferers don't feel safe, and what they most need is meaningful connection with others, including their therapist.

Effective and profound therapy is safe, interpersonal, and restorative. It is a way to finally connect the dots. It reveals what has been missing, what's been kept secret, or what the unconscious mind has repressed. It allows a person to see what's been absent, to fully understand their inner self better, and to restructure their thinking around the narrative so that a paradigm shift is felt.

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialised therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
