Integrity, Trust and Respect are the foundation stones for a sound and rewarding therapeutic relationship. I recognise the thread of energy that has brought therapist and client together is often beyond the presenting issue. The space of psychotherapy is a sacred space where the deepest of human pain and joy can be shared.
The word psychotherapy comes from the Ancient Greek psyche (ψυχή meaning “breath; spirit; soul”) and therapeia (θεραπεία “healing; medical treatment”).
So psychotherapy is healing the soul. I meet my clients exactly where they are and through a dialogical, existential approach we find paths untravelled that can lead to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the self.
Finding the right individual to support us through a challenging period of our lives can be a great relief and potentially a deeply meaningful experience.
We all undergo times of grief, loss, confusion, anxiety, sadness and regret.
My areas of special interest include:-Assertiveness, Childhood Issues, Communication Issues, Conflict Resolution, Depression, Emotional Overwhelm, Existential Issues, Family / Parenting, Grief / Bereavement, Intimacy Issues, Life Transitions, Mediation, Relationship Issues, Spirituality / Religion, Stress Management, Women’s Issues
It is through my own journey combined with many years of training and practice that I bring a deep appreciation and respect for all aspect of the human condition.
My focus as a Gestalt Psychotherapist is self-awareness, self -acceptance, response-ability and being present in the here and now.
My focus as a spiritual teacher is also self-acceptance and authenticity. The centre of all my work is the heart.
I work with adult individuals and couples. I have the utmost respect for the intrinsic wisdom each of my clients hold about their own lives and well being and through more than 40 years of experience I have learned to find way to entice that wisdom to reveal itself.
I hold a sacred space for the soul to heal and flourish. Having undergone many joys and sorrows in my 60 plus years I have developed a deep love and abiding compassion for the human condition.
I offer Individual and Couples Therapy via WhatsApp, Facetime and e-mail. Please contact me to discuss your needs and determine which option is best for you.
