THE NATURAL HEALTH SERVICE

Gestalt Psychotherapy

Counselling and psychotherapy offered on a one-to-one basis

 

People come for therapy for all sorts of reasons. Whether you experience difficulties with relationships, stress, bereavement, depression, anxiety, finding your purpose in life or addictions to alcohol or drugs, you don’t have to deal with it alone!

Therapy can offer a safe and supportive space to explore your issues, leave behind old hurts and reconfigure your life in a way that suits you better.

 

About Gestalt therapy

A creative and holistic approach to therapy Gestalt therapy is a creative and experiential approach that both supports and challenges us to increase our awareness of how we do or don’t get our needs met in our lives. By doing so we expand our potential to adapt more flexibly and suitably to the situations we find ourselves in.

Gestalt therapy is an experiential approach that generally focuses on how we function in the present moment, and helps us discover our own ways of managing difficulties and living more effectively. Gestalt psychotherapy and counselling works with the body as well as with the mind and emphasises how we relate to ourselves, others and the wider environment.

About Counselling and Psychotherapy

How it will work therapeutically with you -

I aim to help people move out of painful or unhelpful patterns and to live a fuller and more satisfying life. My approach to therapy is tailored to suit your unique way of being in the world. As part of how I work, I listen closely to you and work side by side with you to understand your dilemmas, help shed more light on them, and explore creatively alternative approaches to them.

Adopting a holistic approach I aim to create a space that is open to exploring creatively with you what you bring. I view the whole of you in the context of your unique needs, values and history. Harnessing your imagination, creativity and embodied expression I aim to support you in accessing your inherent resources and strengths, and to make better use of them.

During the last 5 years, I have worked with people dealing with issues such as:

• anxiety and depression,

• bereavement/losing a loved one,

• relationship issues with family, friends and people at work,

• overcoming traumatic events,

• chronic illness,

• anger management,

• low self-worth,

• obsessive compulsive patterns,

• addictions

• problems with food

• traversing life-changing decisions such as divorce or career changes

• suicidal thoughts and self-harm

My practice is influenced by my background in group facilitation, practical, experiential and creative approaches to working in the outdoors, wilderness experiences, practicing psychotherapy in the NHS, and my interests in movement, art and the outdoors.
