I am interested in the way thoughts and feelings relate to sensations and symptoms in the body. In my practice, it is possible to work with the body through movement and expression as well as just talking.
My interests also extend to Psychosis and the desire to establish a genuine complimentary and alternative approach to the Psychiatry.
My passion for nature extends to compassion for human nature. I endeavour to explore, work with and bring together your full potential - your thoughts, feelings, sensations, symptoms, behaviours and your self-expression. The more subtle aspects of soul and spirit are also included.
