Hello, I am a qualified Humanistic counsellor, trained in Gestalt Therapy and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I support people who are interested in developing self-awareness and wanting a better understanding of themselves and how they relate to others. By building self-awareness, Gestalt Therapy can support people to take more responsibility for themselves, to increase self confidence and to help them make clearer choices and changes to improve their well-being.
Gestalt means “whole,” and I work in a holistic way to help people become more aware of their own body, mind and behaviours. In sessions I might invite you to use a range of creative ways to express your thoughts and feelings, when at times they are difficult to put into words. I believe our emotional and physical selves are connected and take a particular interest in the person as a whole.
As a counsellor I take a warm, empathic and open minded approach to my therapeutic work. I aim to build a trusting relationship through our work together whilst creating a confidential space where you feel safe enough to explore whatever you have to bring. I believe personal growth and change happen through experiencing your thoughts and feelings and becoming aware of what is happening in the present moment.
Some of the areas I support people with include; anxiety, depression, stress, relationships, families, abuse, work problems, anger, confidence, bereavement, trauma, loss and grief. I am also interested in working with people going through pre and post natal experiences.
I offer support to adults 18+ both short-term (12 weeks) and longer-term therapy, which enables clients to explore deeper and go at their own pace.
Fee: £60 per 50-minute session
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss working together and to arrange a consultation.
