Counselling & Psychotherapy

All consciousness is consciousness of something

Edmund Husserl

Counselling & Psychotherapy:

Taking the first step and reaching out for help can be difficult. It is normal to feel uncertain and worry about finding the right therapist, with whom you may go on to share some deeply personal experiences.

In my private practice I work with many aspects of human experience, like difficulties relating, loss, bereavement, depression and anxiety. My aim is to create a safe and accepting space for exploration. My approach to therapy is relational, body focused and experimental. Change often happens naturally and effortlessly when we learn to accept ourselves as we are.


What to Expect:

If you are interested in counselling & psychotherapy, please contact me to arrange an introductory session. This first meeting is for us both to get to know each other and see whether I am the right therapist for you. There is no commitment to continue after the first session. The first few sessions are to understand what you need from therapy and to develop a plan. We will review at regular intervals how you are getting on. Once you feel the therapy is completed we will have an ending phase over a couple of sessions.

A growing evidence base confirms the gestalt approach to therapy is effective with trauma, stress, depression and anxiety, as well as improving interpersonal relationships.
