I am a qualified Gestalt Therapist in advanced clinical training. I am a member of GPTI and adhere to their code of ethics. I am also a Counsellor Member of COSCA.
I am passionate about my work as a Gestalt Therapist, which is a humanistic and holistic approach to counselling. Focusing on the 'here and now', we explore experiences in a relational way, using creativity, body work, experiments, and the dialogic relationship, to gain increased awareness around the issues presented.
I have a broad background, with an (hons) degree in Geography and have worked in Social Care for a long time. I am also a cook and worked in an Arts Centre, running the Kitchen Workshop for adults with learning difficulties. I also worked as a cook in France.
