Carole Simpkins - Counsellor, Registered MBACP (Accred)
I offer short-term or long-term counselling to individuals and couples in Bank (EC3V), Liverpool Street (EC2M), Muswell Hill (N10) and Kings Cross (NW1). My practice is based on the Gestalt approach; and I see clients with a wide variety of issues, including bereavement, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, stress, domestic violence, workplace bullying etc.
What is Gestalt Counselling?
'Gestalt' is a German word, meaning 'whole'. Gestalt counselling is a holistic approach, looking at the whole person and your environment (I believe that nothing happens in isolation). My work focuses on raising awareness and the relationship between us. In addition, I may suggest bringing creativity into our sessions.
How Counselling Can Help
Gestalt counselling can help by assisting you to have more awareness of yourself and your situation, giving you more power to resolve or face difficulties.
