Established since 1993, I work mainly in private practice with individuals, couples and groups. I have an MSc in Gestalt Psychotherapy, MEd in Human Relations. I like to work face-to-face with people as equals, and to encourage the development of self-esteem and self respect. My work is aimed at helping people see their own way, their own patterns and to explore their inner selves to discover what makes them a unique individual with unique responses to life developments, situations, events, crises, confusion or unhappiness. I use primarily a Gestalt approach, although other models of therapy, together with current research, are used as appropriate. Attending to here-and-now experiences are central to the therapeutic process and I believe that increased awareness of our bodily responses, symptoms, illnesses, dreams and fantasies, thoughts, feelings, habits and behaviours, can lead to more conscious choices and to a release of creative energy. This process can empower us to fulfil more of our potential and lead more satisfying lives.
