About me

About Me

I provide a safe and confidential space for you to share and explore your problems.

Taking the opportunity to talk to someone outside your situation can enable you to see things more clearly and support you in making new choices.

I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgmental relationship that will support you to discuss and work through any issues that are troubling you. This may require short-term counselling, where you will focus on a specific issue or problem in your current life, or longer-term counselling to look at deeper and more long-standing problems.

I view the relationship between myself and my clients as unique and special. I will not tell you what to do but I will provide a warm space where you can reflect on what is happening in your life, gain awareness and healing, and make appropriate choices and changes. It is my belief that everyone has an inborn motivation towards health and growth. My intention is to support you with empathy and compassion to discover what is preventing you from living your life as you would wish.

You may not be sure what the problem is but have a feeling that things are not quite right. Alternatively, you may know that issues from the past are interfering with your ability to live life as you would like to. If either of these is the case then please do get in touch to see how I can help you

At whatever stage in life you are, I hope to be able to offer support and insight in a warm, safe and confidential place.

About Gestalt

Gestalt is a holistic approach which explores the whole person. It combines a focus and exploration of your thoughts and beliefs, your feelings, your physical responses and your behaviour. I see therapy as an interactive process where I will be an active partner in our dialogue.Together, we can explore your situation and raise awareness as to how you have learnt to cope with life's difficulties.This awareness I see as key in making long term changes in the way you live your life - awareness brings choice and change.

Duration of our work

The duration of counselling/psychotherapy can vary depending on what you want to gain from the work. Short-term work can be used to look at a specific issue, while longer-term therapy may allow you to address more complex or deep-seated issues.
