About me

Gestalt psychotherapist since 2002, Trainer and author. Offering therapy and supervision for all aspects of personal development and mental health.

Gestalt psychotherapy is a here and now therapy, considered to be holistic as it sees the person as a whole, it is at times physical, but with a focus on awareness and choice in the present moment.

We explore how we interact with our environment, all those we come into contact with, and develop awareness of how this effects us. You will be supported to explore your experience in the here and now; and challenged, enabled to explore yourself within a safe space. With the emphasis on the here and now we challenge perceptions and norms, and support you to push your personal development.

I use a mixture of psychotherapy, experimentation, dream work and mindfulness to help find a you more self supporting, confident and content.

Training, qualifications & experience

Dip Gestalt therapy, (Irish Gestalt Centre)

I spent several years working in a therapeutic community for people with long term mental health issues. Aside from that I have been in private practice, worked with social services in East Sussex and supported in schools with mental health education and awareness days.

I have provided consultancy to organisations and businesses specifically for mental health in the work place, and helped develop support networks.  I also worked with managing bipolar uk to provide awareness and support in schools and in the community at large.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
