‘Gestalt’ is the German word for 'form', 'shape' or 'figure', but in English, the word has come to mean 'as a whole' or 'holistic'. Gestalt therapy is an existential/experiential form of psychotherapy that emphasises personal responsibility. It focuses on your experience in the present moment, the therapist-client relationship, the environmental and social contexts of your life, and the self-regulating adjustments you make as a result of your overall situation.
Gestalt can be used for a wide range of mental health needs and is said to be particularly helpful for people who find it hard to access or express emotions.
Gestalt therapy can be short or long term based. Sessions usually last an hour and take place weekly.

I offer people a safe, supportive space to explore difficult feelings and to recognise and deal with the hidden patterns in personal relationships. I offer individual psychotherapy, couples and relationship therapy and groupwork. I can provide both long-term open-ended psychotherapy and brief focused counselling (generally up to 12 sessions).
