Gestalt arts- based talking therapies- therapy as conversation between respected equals.... I work with young people and others across the age spectrum... I also offer clinical supervision (adult and child therapy) and training in the Violet Oaklander approach to therapy (www.vsof.org). for a clearer sense of what I offer please consult my website- details below.
I am a Masters qualified Gestalt Psychotherapist and an Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist working with adults, children, adolescents and families. My background includes over thirty years counselling adults, children and families in private practice, NHS Health and community settings, also in social work and performing arts. `I am also clinical supervisor and international trainer. I work online (Zoom) and face-to-face as a psychotherapist and supervisor and I teach humanistic and integrative arts- based approaches to psychotherapy in UK and abroad. I am joint accredited with UKCP , hold the European Certificate in Psychotherapy and am a BUPA recognised therapist. My publications include a chapter on adolescence. I regularly contribute to conferences on therapy and wellbeing and I have served on the board of two leading psychotherapy associations. I have a particular interest in interdisciplinary work , trangenerational trauma and in using expressive arts methods to help foster confidence, wellbeing and resilience.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
