I am an Accredited Gestalt Psychotherapist, Clinical Supervisor and Specialist Group Facilitator (Registered with both BACP and UKCP). I am the co-author of the book: "The Resonance Factor: Challenging the myth of addiction".
My ethos is that everyone has the right to achieve their full potential. This is achieved through cultivating awareness, acceptance and responsibility there by supporting the individual to live a more fulfilled and exhilarating life.
Some History: I began my work in the caring sector some 30 years ago. Initially specialising in working with children and families, which I found to be very rewarding. Later I desired a change. I enrolled in a leading drama school where I studied performing arts and obtained an Hons Degree . This was a challenging environment which like my work in the caring sector forced me to overcome many innate anxieties. This degree as well as my many years of working with people encouraged me to formally study as a Gestalt Counsellor. The choice of Gestalt as my therapeutic area of study, was its authenticity and its creativity. It felt to me to be a therapeutic process that relished the idea of you, the client, working through the issues you present with a view to achieve the outcome/s you desire.
I am passionate about supporting individuals in navigating their own issues. Please note, this does not solely apply to the client but also to practitioners requiring supervision with regards to their work and how to best understand what they do and why they do it when engaging their clients., Hence, as a clinical supervisor, I take pride in supporting and mentoring other therapists, ensuring that they continually provide the highest quality of care to their own clients.
The question I ask myself and you: Are you ready to embark on a transformative journey towards healing and personal growth?
I am very much interested in clients who realise they have an issue and who are up for the challenge of searching for the solutions that they ultimately hold within themselves. My role and function is to support your awareness that you yourself hold the answers to the challenges within your life!
