Therapy has been of benefit to me in my own life helping me to face challenges and gain new perspectives. My personal experience of the value of therapy was a primary inspiration to undertake trainings in craniosacral biodynamics and psychotherapy.
I am fully qualified in Core Process Psychotherapy, graduating with an M.A. in 2008 and accredited by UKCP. I have more than ten years experience working as a psychotherapist, both in the NHS and in private practice.
I am also a qualified physiotherapist ( MCSP, HPC ) and Craniosacral Therapist previously working in the NHS with a special interest in assisting people who live with persistent pain. Over recent years I have become interested in the inclusion of Mindfulness based interventions to mainstream healthcare, with benefits to both physical and emotional well being.
Yoga is an important part of my life and I continue to enjoy a regular practice . My initial training was in the Sivananda tradition but over the years I have evolved a more eclectic approach, with an orientation to slower, more contemplative forms of practice.
It is both my belief and experience that awareness based practices such as Core Process, Mindfulness and Yoga can alleviate pain and suffering, promote health , greater ease and freedom in both body and mind.
I have an ongoing commitment to my work because I appreciate its value both in my own life and through sharing the experiences of others, especially by being with people in difficult, painful and frightening circumstances and also supporting them through change.
