My approach focuses on the human narrative in the meaning making process. Each human being has a story that matters and no story is less or more important than any other. Understanding our story leads to healthy connection with ourselves and our environment. Without this connection, emotional and physical suffering prevail. Entering into the therapeutic relationship takes courage and commitment because it means exploring unknown territory. It's a journey of self discovery and awareness than can sometimes feel overwhelming. Ultimately though, it is liberating and restorative. Mind, Body and Soul find new balance in co-regulation.
I'm a fully accredited Gestalt psychotherapist working extensively in person and online with adults of all ages and from diverse, multicultural backgrounds. I also have a post graduate Diploma in Contemporary Trauma Practice. Gestalt Therapy is an integrative, humanistic and holistic approach to health, healing and well-being that places emphasis on the 'here and now' by exploring how past experiences and future expectations hinder our ability to live in the present.
