I began my working life as a computer programmer and linguist and worked as a translator for nearly thirty years. More recently I trained as a healer and counsellor, developing an interest in the way situations encountered throughout our lives have an impact on the way we grow and develop. I now offer both transpersonal, sexual and relationship therapy and shamanic work.
