Laura Gavshon BA Hons, MBACP
I have come to use several approaches, in order to be flexible and sensitive to the different experiences that you, the client, bring. Our relationship is an important part of helping you navigate what's troubling you, and I believe a respectful, non-judgmental and human relationship is key to this.
We will explore those areas in your life that you know make you unhappy or uncomfortable.
We might also uncover other, unexpected areas which give fresh insight.
And together, we can begin to facilitate a process of understanding and change.
I work with people in the arts and creative industries in my private practice, and have a lot of experience in higher education, public health and the performing arts. I also supervise individuals.
