About me

Who am I and what do I offer?

I am an experienced UKCP registered gestalt psychotherapist, with an MA in Gestalt Therapy, and am accredited to work with individuals and with groups.

I am based in Nether Edge in Sheffield, S7, and I offer both short-term and long-term psychotherapy and counselling to individuals. I also offer group therapy, personal development groups and introductory group training.

Who do I work with?

In my private practice I offer individual therapy for a wide range of issues, and have worked with adult individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds. I have experience of working with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, bereavement, marital problems, issues around parenting, post natal depression, sexual and physical abuse, bullying, low self-esteem, cultural related issues, career problems, family dynamics, sexuality and eating disorders.

Working with Groups:

Alongside this, I work with groups, often co-facilitating with my colleague, Faisal Mahmood. Groups are usually based in either Sheffield, Birmingham or London. Past groups have included Personal Development weekends, 10 week Personal Development groups, and 'Introduction to Gestalt' workshops aimed at practicing counsellors trained in other modalities. For more information on working with me in a group setting, please go to www.gestaltgroups.co.uk.

Getting here:

My practice is based on Wostenholm Road, S7. There is free on street parking on Wostenholm and surrounding roads. There is also a bus stop almost directly outside the building (number 3 bus route).
