Ontogenesis

...the evolution of being

Counselling

Leonie has always been fascinated by the human experience and believes that Gestalt therapy provides a unique set of tools that can help to shed light on our individual experiences. One of the strengths of Gestalt therapy is that it is not just a talking therapy, it is an experiential therapy, which focuses on the here and now.


Leonie's own journey with Gestalt therapy has been both life changing and life affirming. "I am passionate about supporting others to discover that journey for themselves", says Leonie. Leonie has continuously witnessed how each individual has their own set of experiences and adaptations which impact their way of being in the world. She knows from experience, that with the right support we can all explore and move through difficult situations to increase our focused awareness so that we can live life more fully.


Leonie is available for sessions with adults, adolescents and children. Children's sessions are based on play therapy techniques, which incorporate Gestalt principles. All sessions are one hour and cost $80. If you book a block of 3 or more sessions in advance a $10 per session discount will be applied. If you would like to arrange an initial session to discuss your needs, please contact Leonie here.
