I am a Gestalt Psychotherapist, EMDR Consultant and Clinical Supervisor. I work with a wide range of issues and I work with adults, young people, couples, families, groups and supervisees. I like to tailor my therapeutic approach to the individual client depending on their needs and expectations. In my experience, one size does not fit all and often clients need different levels of support at different times.

Gestalt psychotherapy is a holistic approach to the healing and personal growth of the whole person – the emotional, behavioural, cognitive and physiological aspects of the self, e.g. heightening awareness of how the client relates to himself and others (which is the root of many problems). Gestalt psychotherapy can enable the client to take responsibility for their actions and achieve full potential. Gestalt psychotherapy is about becoming “whole” rather than being fragmented or disconnected in life.

EMDR or Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing is a different form of therapy which helps clients suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), dissociation, trauma, panic attacks, complex grief, phobias and much more. EMDR works on the neural processes of the mind helping to alleviate thoughts, memories and feelings which may be difficult to move past (www.emdrassociation.org.uk.)
