After training for 7 years, I hold a Masters in Gestalt Psychotherapy from Metanoia Institute and am a UKCP and BACP member abiding by their code of ethics. I offer short-term counselling and long-term psychotherapy, tailored to your needs. Training in Gestalt, means I work person to person, observing the present moment with curiosity. Unlike approaches which focus on the individual working through issues, the Gestalt approach encourages working together through your problems as a shared exploration.
My approach allows me to work fluidly with various issues, including; anxiety, depression, bereavement, identity or sexuality, low self-esteem, mood and confidence, trauma, anger issues, panic attacks, relationship difficulties, stress, creative block and lack of motivation. With a background in the arts I have a particular interest in working creatively and experientially with clients, bringing experiences to life in the here and now.
I identify as a queer, neurodiverse, cis-gender woman. As an LGBTQIA + affirming psychotherapist, I emphasise a safe container; a non-judgmental and secure environment, where I hold space free of prejudice, racism or homophobia. I welcome diversity in terms of gender, sexual orientation, relationship style, age, body, race, religion and class. I strive for an inclusive practice and consider myself to be anti-racist and a trans ally.
