About me

As a Clinical Gestalt Psychotherapist for a number of years working in a primary care setting and Employee Assistance Programme, i.e. Staff counselling with numerous organisations and companies my experience is broad.
I am interested in the needs and wants of the client and look to working in a creative and genuine relationship.

My Philosophy is about making whole that which has become fractured, further enhanced by my experience as a Gestalt Psychotherapist working with body process and Trauma.

I have worked with many areas of client issues including Trauma, bereavement,grief and loss, attachment, bullying, sexual identity, relationships, sexual,psychological and physical abuse,
anxiety and depression.
