About Me

I see change and growth as happening through the ‘here and now’ experience, and that individuals have an inherent urge to live as effectively as possible. My role is to help you develop awareness of the most effective way to achieve this.

I regard the interaction between myself and my client as a crucial way for their personal awareness to develop and for change to emerge; so I am actively engaged in what is happening in the moment, and I share this experience, helping my client's broaden their experience in their patterns.

Gestalt therapy encourages experimentation with alternative ways of being in a variety of creative ways, during which client's come to see the patterns they live by and the new possibilities available. This can be both exciting and rewarding.

My experience is with a wide range of severe mental ill-health, distressing life experiences and ongoing emotional worries; all of which have helped shape my interest and attention of the individuals I work with.

I trained as a Gestalt therapist, for individuals and groups, at the London Gestalt Centre, and hold both a Post Graduate Diploma and Masters Degree, accredited by London Metropolitan University.

I have been working in practice for the past 10 years; both privately as well as the voluntary sector. I have a business background, having spent 30 years working across the UK/International media business and have an understanding of the personal challenges that our professional lives can evoke.

I am also an MHFA (Mental Heath First Aid) Instructor offer training courses in a variety of business settings.
