About

Chauncey (She/Her) is a dedicated healthcare professional with over ten years of experience. She has worked as a midwife and specialised in the psychosocial challenges that birth and parenthood can pose. Chauncey is a member of PACFA and is currently completing her post-graduate qualification as a Gestalt Therapist. Believing that it takes immense courage to heal, she is energised whenever someone commits to doing this work with her. Using a trauma-informed, person-centred, somatic (body-focused) form of psychotherapy, Chauncy is creative, compassionate, and warm. As a Gestalt therapist, her holistic and non-pathologising approach is caring for others. Gestalt Therapy is for those who wish to develop the capacity to live a fuller life and seek genuine understanding in a therapeutic relationship. Instead of trying to be someone else, Gestalt Therapy assists in creating the conditions for people to be more fully who they are. This allows them to live in greater connection with themselves, other humans, and the world. Chauncey welcomes people of all gender identifications and with all presenting issues. She is energised by working within her LGBTQI+ community and offers eco-therapy as part of her Gestalt practice.
