As a fully qualified and experienced Gestalt counsellor, I focus on being with you in the room today. I am interested in how your current thinking and behaviour are affected by the environment in which you grew up and now live.
People tell me I am good at helping to clarify and manage fuzzy, confusing thoughts and feelings. Together we will use interesting and creative ways to explore whatever is bothering you at your own pace.
Counselling helped me to rediscover my identity and direction after significant changes and losses. I love it when clients find purpose in their lives as they flourish and grow in new ways.
At our no obligation first appointment we will make a clear ongoing plan. A few sessions can make a big difference and I am also happy to work with you for longer.
I also offer supervision to both trainee and experienced counsellors.
