Reading by the Water

about me

I have always been a person with lots of questions, about myself, about how things - and people -  are organised the way they are. These questions have kept me curious and interested about people and systems in our world.

 

My love of reading has played a big role in supporting and sustaining my curiosity and passion for social justice, and something more fundamental about understanding others.

I spent a lot of my life hiding - mostly from myself - and feeling broken.

I have studied various subjects and completed various trainings but it was only in discovering Gestalt Psychotherapy - and the excitement I felt in that discovery - that I committed to long term personal therapy.

 As I came to a place of greater aliveness and fulfilment I  knew this was how I wanted to support others to feel more connected and vibrant in their life.

My hope is clients don't feel the need to work with me long term.

 

I completed training with Edinburgh Gestalt Institute in 2019. As I work towards accreditation - and I consider myself to always be learning -  I am especially interested in ideas and experiences of play, power, difference and belonging.

My love of story remains - those we tell ourselves, the ones we share in community and every story inbetween.
