Gestalt therapy is a time-tested modality of psychotherapy which was developed in the late 1940s. Gestalt therapists work creatively to bring their clients to the awareness of the here-and-now. This is a powerful method which empowers their clients with answers to often difficult personal questions.

I provide individual psychotherapy and counseling sessions. These are 45-50 minutes in duration each. Clients of my individual sessions come from all walks of life, age and cultures. One thing they have in common is the will to live to their fullest potential, to recapture their inner peace, and to flourish in the society they are embedded in. In practice, what I wish for my clients of gestalt therapy is to gain the confidence of being in the world, while being who they are, full of self-love and respect, with the confidence to provide love and respect to the world around them.
My psychotherapy sessions are relationship focussed. Gestalt therapy is a relational form of therapy. We are shaped by our environment and our relationships. How we deal with relationships today determines the nature of our relationships tomorrow. I encourage couples and family to attend psychotherapy together, where possible.
Each client is assessed individually and the treatment plan is tailored to suit individual needs and readiness. Gestalt therapy is founded on psychoanalysis, eastern philosophy, phenomenology, holism, body work and psychodrama. Like Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), we experiment with new behaviors and attitudes, like Systemic Family Therapy we address the client's family system, like Emotion Focussed Therapy (EFT), much of the work involves awareness of the emotional self.
The Gestalt therapy philosophy of change allows the client to fully integrate new experiences. This kind of change is permanent.
