About me

Counselling can help you understand yourself and the way you are in the world, improve your relationships, support you to work through emotional suffering with a view to leading a more fulfilling life.

Many people who seek counselling have found themselves experiencing relationship problems or emotional difficulties, however, counselling can also benefit those who are curious about themselves and wish to engage in therapy for personal growth. Therapy can do for the mind what exercise does for the body. It can encourage you to feel a sense of aliveness, support you to think more flexibly, help you to develop emotional resilience as well as prevent more serious problems from occurring.

Individual counselling usually takes place once a week at the same time and place. It can be either:

  • short term – usually 6 to 12 sessions – more structured and focused on solving the identified problem or situation or

  • long term – lasting from a few months up to a few years - to explore more deep rooted and historical difficulties.

My therapeutic work is grounded in Gestalt therapy which is a creative, holistic and humanistic approach supporting personal growth, self acceptance and which teaches us how we can have more satisfying relationships with those around us. I work with you as a whole person, paying attention to both physical and psychological processes and how they link together. I work relationally meaning that I bring myself into the therapeutic relationship with you as another human being, sharing my responses, thoughts and feelings with you.

My work with people experiencing severe mental health conditions has deepened my understanding of human nature and the ways in which we can creatively adapt to the world when we experience extreme stress or pressure.

I am particularly interested in people’s everlasting ability to grow through human connection and healthy relationships.
