How I Work

My calm presence offers support so that you feel safe enough to explore difficulties and challenges. I offer 50 minute sessions, usually weekly, on the same day and at the same time.

We may work either short term for 8-12 sessions, or longer term. Either way, we will consider your needs together and agree on your priorities and timescales. 

As a Gestalt psychotherapist, I am interested in your experiences and perspective; some of which you may know and some of which we might discover together. I believe that we are always trying and adapting to be the best that we can be and sometimes old patterns get in the way.


My intuitive and creative style will help you to understand who you are in the world. With this comes the ability for you to bring balance into your life and make informed choices.

Relationships are a very real and important part of our world and paying attention to how we relate during therapy will provide insights into how you connect and communicate in day to day living.
