22 Years Experience

I m a Gestalt therapist qualifying in 1999. I have practiced in Primary Health Care (NHS), Rethink and Mind mental health charities and also worked on the counselling course at University of West of England, Bristol. I now work privately in Exeter and Bath and also online. I also work with groups for the NHS.
Gestalt is a humanistic therapy that involves communicating in a way that relates to the other ie therapist. We may also look at the body and how feelings and emotions are held in the body, the evironment which changes, for example, where we work or live, and how that affects us. Then, most importantly our relationships and how we connect with others and the world around us.

There is an emphasis on how you are feeling in the here and now and the acceptence of this place. Moving on from this or the intentionality of the next step is primarily part of the work, as are explorations of who we are and where we would like to reach.
