I am a Gestalt-trained humanistic counsellor/psychotherapist and I work with both individuals and couples offering both short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy.
I work in a holistic way, believing that each person is a unique individual within their environment. I seek to provide a safe space for clients to explore their problems or relationships with the main aim that the client will discover more self-awareness. The Gestalt approach believes that with new awareness comes the possibility of new choices, and that this in turn will lead to client's finding new solutions or alternative ways of being.
The main objective of this approach is for the individual to become more aware of themselves taking into account their mind, body and spirit. The purpose of this is to improve the person's personal experiences and therefore create a better quality of life.
