About me

Are you looking for someone to help you through a difficult time in a safe, private and confidential place? 

I work as a Gestalt therapist and Supervisor in private practice, offering both short and long term counselling/psychotherapy to adults experiencing a wide range of different issues that are impacting their life and ability to function. 

Gestalt psychotherapy is a humanistic therapy and incorporates a belief that we are all unique, and that each of us has the right to autonomy and respect. Rather than my trying to do something to you I work with clients to develop a working relationship that is respectful, confidential and suited to your individual needs.  What you bring to therapy will be unique to you, therefore it is important that you are able to be heard and your views and ideas listened to. I will then work with you within the confines of a safe, caring and respectful relationship where I endeavour to give you my best attention at all times. 

Sometimes difficulties in relationships or life events such as bereavement or illness can be complicated due to unresolved past issues and old patterns of relating.  It could be that you may have experienced trauma or abuse in your history and find that this significantly impacts your life now.  Having someone to talk to in the moment to moment relating between client and therapist can support you to explore such patterns of relating and ultimately facilitate change helping you to find more peace and fulfilment in life. 

I am very committed to being a therapist and working with clients.  Sometimes clients may feel that what they want to talk about in therapy might not be relevant.  In my experience any issue or anything a client wants to explore is very relevant.  Issues that clients bring are often very wide and varying.

For example I work frequently with clients who experience anxiety or stress but I also work successfully with many, many different issues.  Some of these might include historical trauma, bereavement, relationship issues, addictions or life questions such as how do I feel more fulfilled, happier, how do I stop making the same mistakes, why am I scared of everything, what stops me being able to be more intimate, or why do I find it so hard to have friends.  

I would also add that sometimes it can feel extremely difficult to reach out and contact a therapist.  I understand this and I also know that often once you have reached out you can feel less alone and the process of therapy can start.

I have a particlar interest in trauma and abuse as I spent 5 years working for a charity that supported victims of sexul abuse and another charity that worked with victims of domestic violence.  Working within these organisations has supported me to be able to offer a wealth of experience to clients I now work with. It also prompted me to want to further my own personal development and training.  So whilst I trained initially as a Person Centred Counsellor for the past 6 years I have been studying Gestalt Psychotherapy to increase my understanding of wider and more complex mental health issues.   I work now solely in private practice in Nantwich at Regents Park.

Supervision & training

Supervision provides an opportunity to reflect on issues aring from counselling practice.  I therefore strive to offer a safe space in which you can focus on your work with clients and the therapeutic process.  The relationship between me as supervisor and you as supervisee is a collaborative one, working together to decide how best to support your clients.
