I discovered Gestalt Relational Psychotherapy around the year 1999, and was completely impressed about its transformative processes after 7 years of personal therapy. I became an advocate and wanted to share this informative and investative process so on exploring how, I enrolled and attended Gestalt Therapy Australia's course and completed the Advanced Diploma over 5 years. (4 year Diploma)
What stood out about this type of personal relational therapy is how it brought out the information I needed to know to be able to see myself clearly, it was not putting a plan on me to try to follow or trying to fix me. I felt heard and seen, I got the attention I wanted, I believed in myself again! It was as if I had forgotten who I was and what was important to me.
Now in my 50's and having lived a full life, I understand the benefit of a qualified relational therapist, someone who you can discuss your deepest thoughts, who will ponder with you your life desires and who has the skills to support you to gain confidence to fulfil them. That someone is me, I look forward to meeting you.
Sessions with me will give you the chance to explore yourself in your life in a truthful, trusting and safe environment. Each person is unique, and how you look at the world is individualist, sessions will be ever-evolving and the relationship supportive, a continuous sequence of experiencing and of examining the process of you in your life.
Through this relational therapy, we build a relationship based on listening and enquiring, sorting through what is real and what is perceived as being real, who you really are and how you really feel about your life
Together we will shape a therapeutic relationship around what you want to achieve and will revolve around your enquiries to know more about what is going on in your life.
I consider myself fortunate for having spent time sharing with Sherridan. She is wise, compassionate, nurturing and supportive.
Sherridan, Thank you for providing a warm and safe space for me, to explore and challenge my fears and doubts. You were always interested and fully present as you met me at the intellectual plainÂ where I was most comfortable and from there you gently encouraged and supported me, to explore emotions that I kept hidden for more than six decades.Â You helped me shed my fears of emotional experience and intimacy. My personal life and my work with my own clients are richer and deeper for our time together.
Working with Sherridan has changed my life. With her help, I've uncovered the hidden dynamics and beliefs that affected my life and I am a happier, healthier, better balanced and more whole person for having been her client. I can't recommend her highly enough. Sherridan is a highly skilled, intuitive and compassionate therapist.
Sherridan has been a wonderful role model and mentor in not only my professional life but also my private one. She has had such a wonderful and interesting life, and uses this experience as well as her further education to provide rounded, non judgmental advice. She is an extremely warm and open minded individual who Iâ€™m very glad to have met!
