Emilyn Claid MSc Gestalt UKCP registered

I work as a body focused Gestalt psychotherapist. I have a holistic approach to therapy, linking mind and body, where talking, feeling, thinking and moving interweave. The here and now of the relationship forms the ground from which to reach into the past and future.
I also work as a choreographer and movement, gesture and bodywork are integrated into my practice as a psychotherapist. Our gestures and social behaviours are developed through relationship with others in the world so I tend to include a psycho-somatic focus in my work.
My style of therapy is relational and creative and I believe in building a trustful, respectful alliance as the basis for working together.
I offer one to one counselling, couple work and group therapy facilitation.
I have a diploma in supervision and offer supervision for counsellors, therapists and therapists in training.
I offer on line supervision.
