I'm a title. Click here to edit me.
My therapeutic work is grounded in Gestalt therapy which is a creative, holistic and humanistic approach supporting personal growth, self acceptance and which teaches us how we can have more satisfying relationships with those around us. I work with you as a whole person, paying attention to both physical and psychological processes and how they link together. I work relationally meaning that I bring myself into the therapeutic relationship with you as another human being, sharing my responses, thoughts and feelings with you.
My work with people experiencing severe mental health conditions has deepened my understanding of human nature and the ways in which we can creatively adapt to the world when we experience extreme stress or pressure.
I am particularly interested in people’s everlasting ability to grow through human connection and healthy relationships.
