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 in relationships 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 studied various subjects and undertook 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 and knew I'd found something both new, which could sustain me and yet familiar, which made sense to me.
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 with life.
My hope is clients don't feel the need to work with me for the long term, although I know the value this can have for individuals.
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 feelings and experiences around play, power, difference and belonging.
My love of story remains - those we tell ourselves, the ones we share in community and every story inbetween.
we know not through our intellect, but through our experience
