Introducing Long and Short-Term Counselling

Hello! My name is Rhonda Gibson Long, and I am a Clinical GANZ and PACFA registered gestalt trained psychotherapist. I work with individuals and couples providing long, and short-term counselling and psychotherapy. I have completed a postgraduate Masters of Gestalt Psychotherapy and have had more than 28 years’ experience of working with clients.

In Good Hands

I have taught Gestalt psychotherapy for over 15 years in Sydney Gestalt Institute as well as other psychotherapy training centres in Australia. As a result of my experiences in training and in private practice I have developed an effective, relationally based method of supporting clients struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship and life crises.

Why Anahata?

Anahata is the Sanskrit name for the heart chakra. It is associated with balance, calmness and serenity.

On the psychic level, this centre of force inspires human beings to be calm, to love, be compassionate with self and others, be expansive, realise and integrate and accept things that happen in a divine way.
