About

I am UKCP accredited Gestalt psychotherapeutic counsellor and Mindfulness teacher. I have completed a 4-year training in Gestalt psychotherapy in Edinburgh Gestalt Institute between 2013-2017. I work with individuals and couples and can provide a safe and respectful environement to explore life and relational themes, including early and complex trauma, depression, anxiety etc. and how they impact your current life circumstances or relationships.
Contemporary Gestalt therapy that I offer can provide a lively exploration of feelings and behavioural patterns through embodied experiments that are co-created between a client and a therapist. I work very creatively including movement, breath and posture and I might use art materials as well as other props to help with therapy process.
My approach is dialogic and relational where the emphasis is on the present moment encounter with another human being and my practice is informed by respect, confidentiality, and compassion. I regularly consult it with a qualified and accredited clinical supervisor. I am fully insured and as a member of GPTI and UKCP I subscribe to their codes of ethics.
