About Me

web-leanneI began my training at the Gestalt Institute of Melbourne and have since studied in the United States and England. I completed a Master’s Degree in Gestalt Psychotherapy at Middlesex University and have recently completed my Doctorate.

I have worked in private practice for the past twenty years, providing counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples. During that time I have also worked as a supervisor and educator.

For the past seventeen years I have taught gestalt psychotherapy at Gestalt Therapy Australia and also teach internationally, most recently at the Esalen Institute in the US. I am an Associate of Relational Change in the UK and an International Associate Faculty  with the Pacific Gestalt Institute.

I am interested in writing and encouraging others to write and was a founding co-editor of the Gestalt Journal of Australia and New Zealand. I am particularly passionate about Eros and sexuality, and am interested in exploring how these issues emerge in clinical practice. My ongoing commitment is to developing theoretical and practical resources that better support practitioners.

I am a member of GANZ (Fellow), a member association of PACFA, and am currently on the GANZ Council, having previously served as the Chair of Ethics and the President.
