Cathy Heseltine

Gestalt Psychotherapist

I am a Gestalt Psychotherapist with experience working with clients on a range of issues including childhood trauma, anger management, bereavement, identity, relationship breakdown, anxiety and depression.
As a Gestalt therapist, I consider that everyone has an inherent ability to live a satisfying and creative life, but that we can become stuck in fixed patterns and beliefs that get in the way.

I will work with you to uncover what is underlying your current difficulties. I will be led by you and I will support you to develop your own insights and find those resources which will best support you to change: to become ‘unstuck’.

I work in the ‘here and now’ as much as possible, by which I mean I notice and draw attention to what is happening in the moment, including between us, as a way of raising awareness of your patterns.

I am non-judgemental and encourage an atmosphere of safety, mutual trust and hope; I believe that this is crucial to support you and to enable change.
