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. I explore ways to support ourselves from the anxiety and fear that is provoked by living in an uncertain world.
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 psychotherapy and counselling.
I have an MSc in psychotherapy and a diploma in supervision.
I offer one to one and group supervision for counsellors, therapists and therapists in training.
I offer supervision, face to face and on line.
