Kate Merrick Counsellor , SW1V
I am a qualified and experienced Gestalt Psychotherapist, drawing on my five-year therapeutic training at the Gestalt Centre, my on-going professional development, as well as my own personal journey of self-discovery. I have worked with many clients over the years, from a wide variety of different backgrounds, all with unique stories, needs and experiences. From working with highly traumatised individuals within an NHS setting, to working with people struggling with drug addiction and mental health diagnoses, I have become well accustomed to tailoring my approach to the needs of the individual and being flexible enough to meet them in their ever changing experience.
Now, I work solely in private practice, working frequently with themes around loss of identity, low self-esteem, physical health symptoms, problems in relationships, lack of direction, vitality and meaning, depression, anxiety, anger and feelings of powerlessness. It is my aim, to help you see your situation more clearly, identifying old habitual patterns that continue to operate out of awareness, even when they may have outlived their usefulness. This often leads to new insights, effective lively change and satisfaction as well as greater freedom and autonomy.
In addition to being a psychotherapist, I am also a writer and researcher, continually exploring new ways to enhance our wellbeing, and getting back to our natural and optimum state of health and equilibrium.
