Gestalt is an effective way of getting to better understand how people view us and how we impact them. Through observing patterns in the therapy room, we can witness in the immediate present how we impact each other, and practise and experiment with ways of behaving and talking in a safely contained, confidential space without any fear of repercussions. Gestalt therapy can at times feel more experimental than other types of talking therapies. Depending on what comes up, we might use props and objects in the room, partake in visualisation exercises, work with dreams, use art, drawing, role-play, music or movement to explore feelings and even place those feelings in different locations and chairs in the room. Or we may just simply focus on talking. Where many talking therapies focus on what you say, Gestalt therapy takes into account your use of words, body language, somatic experience, bodily sensations and feelings as well as thoughts and emotions. Sessions can in some moments feel spontaneous, even at times playful; at other times, sessions may feel more reflective with dialogue between us. I respond to you and what you bring. There is a focus on the here-and-now experience where we use what comes up in the moment as a springboard for where the session will go. My intentions are to support you to develop insights and draw connections for yourself – throughout, you remain the expert in your own life.
Ultimately, my aim is not to interpret what you do or say or to define who you are, but to support you to define yourself. I focus on raising your self-awareness and awareness of how you relate to others, facilitating you to get to the crux of your underlying feelings and the core of who you are and what you want when you remove society’s expectations out of the equation.

Acupuncture, Tuina, Moxibustion, Cupping, Gua Sha
Patrizia has studied Chinese medicine at the Xian Tian College of Daoist medicine, a branch of the Lotus Neigong International school where she has been studying Neigong since 2015. She started practicing Qigong in 2007 and trained to teach it in 2012.
Patrizia has completed the Tuina Advance Diploma with Sarah Pritchard, whom she regularly sees as ongoing development.
Her holistic approach to health and wellbeing includes exercise, diet and lifestyle which she always discusses with her clients as part of the treatments. Through Qigong she has learnt to improve her health by increasing presence and listening within the body and she is now introducing these skills to her clients.
She also runs remote sessions as a form of health coaching to introduce the Yang Sheng principles for vitality and wellbeing to the general public or provide after care support to her clients.
Patrizia has developed an educational program focused on the menstrual cycle, from the fertile years to menopause. She firmly believes in fact that the understanding of the physiology, emotions and self-care there involved can empower women with better health and more rooted presence in their lives and communities. This program is available either one-to-one or in group sessions.
She comes from a creative background which is still integral part of her life and self-expression. Her creativity has been a solid companion and a resourceful tool for her work and everyday life.

Integrative and Gestalt email@example.com
Heather is an experienced therapist and UKCP accredited psychotherapist working one-to- one with individual adults, and also leading therapy groups. She has worked with the NHS as a therapist, is part of Age UK Camden Counselling and therapy team and for some time was a member of cabinet of international therapists outside the UK, as well as her private practice. Humanistic, Integrated and Gestalt psychotherapy are at the heart and focus of her practice with clients. She is a veteran of international arena of executive coaching and in some ways her practice is built on her considerable past experience in the development of individual potential and growth. Experience has proved to her that in therapy a holistic approach to healing is vital for growth and change and is achieved through understanding how we live and relate to others in terms of our emotional, cognitive, bodily, social and ‘spiritual’ needs.
I provide a safe and respectful space for you and I to explore difficult feelings and gain enhanced awareness of how past and present relationships, break-ups, grief or traumas may be affecting you from day to day.
Bringing in therapeutic and life experience, I will support you in a creative process in which you may find new perspectives on your situation and your self. New insight into your wants, feelings, thoughts, ambivalences and needs can in itself bring about change.
As our work progresses your heightened awareness will help identify patterns of response which you may wish to abandon giving you different choices going forward. This awareness promotes renewed energy, influences your motivation and supports recovery.
I consider the therapeutic relationship in the present moment (or how you and I work together) as an essential constituent to the healing and change process. I offer a no-cost 15 minute phone call for you to ask questions about me or my practice before arranging an initial assessment session.
In the assessment session we will explore your current difficulties, some brief history and what aims you have and changes you hope to make. This will also be an important opportunity to check how well you and I could work together. Depending on your situation therapy can be a long-term process of several years, or perhaps you may have a short-term need which may just span a limited period of 12-15 weeks. I work face to face and online.
Availability: Wednesdays afternoons and evenings. Other dates and times are variable so please enquire.
Fees: One-to-One £80 (weekly)
