Struggling? In a dark confusing scary place? Maybe you're feeling a mixture of difficult feelings; anger, sadness, guilt, shame, low mood, anxiety, loneliness, feeling like no-one understands or that no-one listens. Perhaps you’ve experienced a crippling loss of someone or some part of your life and you don’t know where to turn. You don’t know what to do, you feel stuck and lost. So, what are you going to do? Go talk to a stranger about it? Counselling can feel like a terrifying thing to do.

There's a first time for everything. Most newcomers to counselling & psychotherapy start out feeling a little intimidated by the idea of this rather mysterious process. I aim to demystify what I do - clients often comment on what they describe as a down-to-earth and accessible approach. My aim is ultimately to help you understand yourself and your behaviour. I feel that goal is best achieved by working in a non-threatening, straightforward and inclusive way.

Drawing on my Gestalt training, I encourage them to be curious of their embodied process and responses as well as their cognitive ones.
Clients may reach out for support because of the current challenging circumstances or because of long standing issues which have come to the surface at the present time. The uncertainty and collective anxiety we are all experiencing may be testing our best coping strategies and therapy can provide a safe space where to explore feelings and fears. During our sessions, we may look into any unfinished business and historic relational templates which can affect the present and re-enact painful patterns. We will be interested in what happens in the here and now of our client-therapist relationship.

Approaches used include Psychodynamic, Transpersonal, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt .
Therapeutic Counselling using the Arts, encompasses therapy and developmental psychology which enables me to work with and support clients to develop skills, to understand their personal circumstances better. Such skills are then internalised over time which helps their situation to be more manageable. l offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment to support our work, which brings skills of heightened empathy, observational skills and counter-transference into the clinical work, & broadens the experience for the client. I strongly believe in the importance of the therapeutic relationship and its impact on our work.

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.
