I qualified from the Chiron Centre for Body Psychotherapy in 1999 and received a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of East London in 2008. I have done further trainings in many areas including Babette Rothschild Somatic Trauma training (for PTSD and CTSD) in 2004, and National Centre for Eating Disorder’s Master Practitioner program (for anorexia, obesity and EDNOS) in 2007. My Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme in recent years has included Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing, Hakomi Therapy, working with Care Experienced clients, Therapeutic Yoga and Writing as Therapy. I had a busy private practice in South East London until 2016, when I moved to Grange-Over-Sands in Cumbria, where my family originally lived.
I enjoy yoga, singing and creative writing, and I am happy to use any of these as part of the therapy with clients who resonate with such things.
I am accredited by the CABP (Chiron Association for Body Psychotherapy) and UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and abide by their ethical frameworks. I am in regular supervision.
