I am able to bring awareness to presenting concerns, offering a safe space for clients to explore the way they think, feel and act in a given situation. As a Gestalt counsellor, I draw upon a holistic approach focusing on the mind, body and spirit connection.
I recognise that past experiences inform how we navigate our way through life, and how we relate to others. In my sessions, I like to explore the client’s inner world to support them towards the path of healing.
Gestalt therapy offers a dynamic way to support change. The idea of sitting in a room, opposite a stranger, may evoke feelings of uncertainty or fear, amongst a mixture of other emotions. I offer an opportunity to explore what this may mean for you, and support you through the process, without judgement.
