About me

Come home to yourself.

Allow the mind to calm and the body to soften and release. Who are you underneath the noise of the world?  What needs to be heard today and on what level? For over 25 years, I have assisted people in profound transformation through bodywork and psychotherapy. As I am trained in Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapy, the Alexander Technique and Craniosacral Therapy, my work can help to identify and resolve pain and discomfort, whether manifesting in the body, mind, or more usually a combination of both. Where, after all, do your thoughts and feelings occur if not in the body?

Psychotherapy helps us to understand how our experiences and the stories that we tell ourselves restrict us.

Bodywork such as the Alexander Technique or Craniosacral Therapy alongside traditional therapy can help us to identify how we embody these stories and invite us to release them while allowing a deep but subtle sense of inner calm. They can help to teach a different way of experiencing and moving through the world.  

I offer traditional individual appointments or, by agreement, longer sessions combining therapies where we can explore more deeply how your stories live within your mind and your body. 

I work with people who want to explore new ways of bringing about change in their lives and seek a reconnection to a larger sense of meaning.

I use imagery, symbolism, and myth to help make sense of your world.

I don't offer a quick fix or an instant cure, but a chance for you to gain a greater understanding of yourself.  An opportunity to see where you came from and where you might go from here. I work with people who want to explore new ways of bringing about change in their lives to seek a reconnection to a larger sense of meaning.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
