I work with both individuals and couples, short and long-term work. I have worked for over 15 years in mental health and private practice. Gestalt psychotherapy takes a holistic approach that believes that awareness and insight are achievable goals and a means of personal growth. Therapy focuses on what is thought, felt and done in the here and now, rather than necessarily on the content of what is discussed. 'Now' is the only moment in which a human being has any direct control. We have no power to change the past and we can only guess about the future, although we recognise that past events may well be affecting the present moment.
