When working with clients, I tailor my approach to suit each individual, drawing from a range of theories and techniques. I will provide a safe, supportive environment to allow you the space to explore and better understand your thoughts and feelings, without judgement.
My core training is Humanistic Gestalt, which in practice involves a focus on self-awareness and understanding your thoughts, feelings, and emotions in the present moment. Increased understanding of yourself can create powerful and long-lasting change, allowing you to see your life and your current situation with a new perspective.
Gestalt therapy is an effective approach for a number of issues, including (but not limited to) anxiety and depression, stress, loss, low self-esteem, and relationship problems.
As well as working in private practice, I am also the Clinical Lead of a counselling service charity based in Winchester.
