About me

Gestalt therapist since 2002, offering therapy 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)

Certificates in supervision, group work, group dynamics, group theory, co-facilitation, (Richmond fellowship)

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. During this time I also worked with FWA to provide support to minors who fled the conflict in Sierra Leone.

During the last 16 years I have also supported individuals through periods of personal development, from finding ways to live with enduring mental health problems to overcoming anxiety and depression, performance anxiety, psychosomatic effects etc.

Member organisations


Other areas of counselling I deal with

Dreamwork, nightmares, night terrors persistent or recurring dreams.


The first session is free, It is exploratory to see if you feel I am the right therapist for you and to make sure I feel I can be of benefit to you, it gives you a taster from which you can make a clearer choice to continue. fees start at £45, however I have some concessionary spaces for people on benefits, low income or in possession of a carers card.

Group work is also available, prices on request.

I am also able to offer a discounted service to people with Bipolar who wish to join my research project, details on application.
