How I work

I am a qualified Gestalt Counsellor, my approach is to create an environment that feels safe and holding. I will listen attentively, and empathically, offering reflection when needed. I work experientially and have an understanding, that when there are language barriers, verbal expression feels challenging and words may become stuck, I can provide a space for exploring alternative ways to find expression, sometimes incorporating creativity to support the counselling process. I work inclusively, humanistically and relationally meaning you and I work together in the here and now, focusing on what you are bringing and acknowledging all parts of you. This approach encompasses some of how I work as a Gestalt Counsellor.

Professional Standards

I am a registered accredited member (MBACP Accred), of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and abide by their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Profession. I am a member of UKAGP (The UK Association for Gestalt Practitioners) and ACTO (Association for Counselling and Therapy Online).

I am a certified Online Counsellor and a member of ACTO (Association for Counselling and Therapy Online). This means I have undertaken courses to work safely and competently online and continue to do so. If you wish to have counselling this way it may be useful to consider a few things like:

  • Do you feel comfortable using technology?
  • Is there a safe and private space which you can use each week without being interrupted or overheard?
  • Is your broadband speed stable enough, especially when using WiFi?
  • Do you have a desk or laptop you can use?


I work with clients face-to-face in a therapy room. It may be useful to consider a few things like:

  • Do you feel comfortable being in a room face-to-face for counselling?
  • Do you notice any anxiety or fear when you consider the first question?
  • Do you feel it is important to wear a mask to undertake face-to-face sessions and for your counsellor to do so?
  • Are there any other considerations important for you to feel safe and comfortable in face-to-face counselling? It may be useful to make a list.


I can offer Walk and Talk Counselling, if you feel unsure, or have some fear or anxiety being in a therapy room. It may be useful to consider a few things like:

  • How do you feel about being in an open public space? 
  • Do you feel an environment like a park, by the river or canal, might support you to feel more comfortable?
  • Considering how you may feel if you bump into someone you know, what might that be like? 
  • Do you have any physical concerns that may prevent you from walking for a period of time?


If you have any concerns about sitting face-to-face in a therapy room, I can consider Alternative Spaces, like a studio space where more movement and flexibility are permissible. 

The shortlist of considerations is to help you to think a little about coming to counselling, and what method of counselling you may prefer.
