It is important to feel comfortable with a therapist you work with.   I understand that you may want to know a little more about me before deciding to work together:

Despair and suffering are the catalysts that usually bring someone to therapy and this can be the beginning of a transformational and alchemical journey with creative process and compassion at the heart of the work.

My own suffering deepened my path and I developed an interest in mindfulness practice.  Training as a Core Process Psychotherapist was a natural progression and I qualified as a UKCP registered psychotherapist in 2003.  I have been in private practice since then and currently offer Psychotherapy and Supervision.  I am currently one of the Directors at  Karuna Institute which offers UKCP recognised trainings in Mindfulness-based Core Process Psychotherapy.

I began my career working in the film industry.  However, an interest in holistic and complementary therapies led to a different path and I became a qualified Aromatherapist.  I specialised in working in the field of HIV/AIDS and worked with several organisations including London Lighthouse, Immune Development Trust and across several NHS treatment schemes.  I was an Aromatherapy tutor for the professional training at the Tisserand Institute and also taught their subtle energy module.

For the last 20 years I have provided psychotherapy to individuals and psychological consulting to organisations, written articles and taught on aspects of trauma, resilience and wellbeing.

As a psycho-spiritual psychotherapist  I am interested in the subtle embodiment of the deep imagination and the healing potential of working with nature and the land.  I have a deepening interest in the place of transitions, particularly in midlife and how spiritual crisis can be a deeply creative calling.

My path is influenced by interests in Celtic mythology & spirituality, healing, interpersonal creativity, wellbeing, resilience, eco-psychology, sacred plant medicine and a heart-mind-body practice which informs all aspects of my work.
