About Me and My Practice
I am an interim registered Gestalt psychotherapist.
As a Gestalt therapist, I aim to raise awareness of how my client relates with others and how this affects their experiences in life. With this awareness, the hope is that the client's ability to make creative choices grows, rather than feeling they have no control over their lives. The relationship that forms between the client and me facilitates healing. The uniqueness of each individual is valued, and within therapy, attention is paid to all aspects of life: physical, psychological, emotional, intellectual, relationships, and spiritual. Our aim is to find ways to integrate all these aspects of a person's life, to encourage self-responsibility, and to live authentically.
Practice HoursI have spaces for new clients on Wednesdays & Thursdays. The earliest appointment is at 8.30am, the latest at 5.30pm.
Duration and CostEach session takes 50 minutes and ideally would be weekly. My fee is currently $80 per session. I do not have eftpos facilities.
