CERTIFICATE IN GESTALT COUPLE THERAPY
I am a qualified and experienced therapist, offering long and shorter-term Gestalt Therapy for individuals and for couples. Gestalt Therapy is a wonderfully relational, embodied and creative approach and I am passionate about the possibilities for change it offers. I have been working as a therapist since 2001, first qualifying back in 2003. I provide a safe, affordable and confidential space for you to explore.
As an individual or as a couple, you may be seeking a therapist right now because life seems incredibly tough-going and you’re struggling to cope. Perhaps there’s something that you know needs to change but are uncertain how to do it on your own. I believe we all carry with us the solutions to really live life to the full. Often we get confused and stuck along the way. We might need some external input such as therapy to help us find the way again.
We will explore how you have become stuck in certain areas of your life. Living fully from moment to moment depends on being able to adapt to the constantly changing environmental conditions – the situations and the people we encounter. When we get stuck, it’s usually because, for good and creative reasons in the past, we’ve become fixed or limited in the ways we relate to others and to parts of our life now.
Our work together will be to help develop greater awareness – about thoughts, feelings, attitudes, behaviours, actions in many different situations. As an individual or as a couple, you will develop new ways to self-support; experiment with doing things differently; gain greater self and other acceptance; and become more engaged in choosing the life you really want. I look forward to the opportunity to join you for a part of the journey.
