Psychotherapy & Counselling Services

Let’s make contact

Gestalt Therapy

Gestalt Therapy views that all individuals possess the capacity for growth and change irrespective of their stage of life; and that the person and their environment, situation, life story are inseparable.

There are times in all of our lives we can feel stuck, in relationship to ourselves and others, it may become difficult to navigate and we need the help of a counsellor to find support with what is difficult.

Gestalt Therapy will support you to explore your situation, what is causing difficulty at this point in your life. Sometimes as children, the natural innate process of thriving, being creative and find fulfilling relationships becomes blocked or stops.

Our answer to this is to adjust to the situation in the best way we can with what is available to us at the time. These adjustments while valuable, useful way to cope at the time as life moves forward can become unhelpful. Sometimes these adjustments or ways of relating might become issues that are brought to therapy. Things like depression, anxiety, addiction, commitment issues.

These ways of relating will invariably show up in our relationships, with our partners, friends and family, strangers and become obstacles to fulfilling relationships with ourselves and others.

The Way We’ll Work

During our sessions as we sit together and talk. I may bring attention to your thoughts, feelings and body sensations, helping you to increase awareness and meaning of what is happening for you.

I will use curiosity and creativity to help you describe what your experience is and support your emerging new awareness.  We may use symbols, pencil and paper or sand to explore what is unconscious, out of your awareness, to emerge into the present and gain new insight.

We might use small experiments to enable you access more information such as how you might be breathing or your posture in the chair as we speak.

We will work together on what emerges for you to gain a great understanding of your inner world and situation, to move towards a more enliven and fulfilling life.

First comes awareness, then acceptance.

Be curious & explore

Sandplay Therapy

Sandplay therapy offers a healing space in the sand tray, to explore a person’s unconscious inner world to increase awareness and gain insight into an issue.

Play is essential in our lives, it is how we learn as children but as we grow it can be left behind. As adults, play can be used to learn more about ourselves and our inner world. The sand tray can create a safe space for you to explore that world, to deepening awareness of how you are living your life, to explore an issue of concern or as an aid to personal development, towards growth and change.

The premise of sandplay therapy is that the psyche has a natural tendency to heal itself given support and the presence of a therapist . Using miniatures of objects and symbols of their lives in the sand that may represent aspect of a person’s experience, a dream or life situation bringing clarity, healing and increased awareness.

An emotional disturbance can be dealt with by giving it visible shape.

C G Jung

This shape takes place in the sand in the tray. I will offer my support in this emerging process with acceptance, empathy and care.
