Taking the first step to access counselling can be a scary and daunting process. It takes huge courage to acknowledge there are things in our lives we wish to change. Perhaps you want to improve your wellbeing, look at experiences from your past or explore patterns in relationships.
I offer an accepting, safe and creative environment where collaboratively we can explore what has brought you to therapy. Working from a Gestalt perspective, I take a holistic approach where we look at your experiences with your thoughts, feelings, soul, body and social environment. By paying attention to these parts together we can explore and appreciate the whole of who you are.
I work relationally, listening to your experience with warmth and openness, helping you to create greater awareness of who you are and how you are in the present moment. It can be healing to press pause once a week in what’s likely to be a busy life, giving yourself the space to reflect on how you are feeling. Therapy can help you gain a greater sense of belonging, express vulnerability and be truly heard, seen and accepted as you are.
