About me

Are you ready to heal your past and write a new future? Do you want to make changes in your life, emotions, or health? I can help you to initiate the process of inner transformation and positive change. I will provide you with a welcoming, safe, confidential, and healing space for you to connect with and explore your inner world. 

My approach-I work with a combination of ancient shamanic knowledge, alchemy and spirituality, integrated with the most up to date scientific discoveries about human potential. Whilst this is an exciting way to work you do not need any prior knowledge in these areas. All that is required is a curiosity and an openness to work this way. I will be your guide and help you to understand how your mind, body and soul work together, providing you with tools for inner mastery and a deeper understanding of your life.

You will learn how to access your own inner guidance, intuition and increase your personal power.  You will be able to unlock your inner resources, resolve past issues that are holding you back and break free from the patterns that keep you stuck.

Areas I work with- anxiety, feeling sad, low self-esteem, panic attacks, phobias, grief and loss, depression, unprocessed emotions, stress and feeling overwhelmed, lack of purpose, problems at work, relationship breakdowns and issues with children and family. This is not an exhaustive list, people work with me for a wide variety of reasons including navigating all the highs and lows of everyday life.

Getting started-Sessions look different for every client. Some clients find it easy to talk about themselves, others struggle to know what is causing their problems and how to express this. All of this is fine, there is no right or wrong way to be, just bring yourself to the session and I will support you through the process.

Book an initial no obligation consultation-If you are interested in booking a session or would like to know more about my services please text or email me to book an initial conversation. I welcome inquiries so please feel free to get in touch and book an initial 15 minute consultation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 20 years experience in the field of therapy, counselling, psychotherapy,  organisational transformation, training and consultation. 

As such I have qualified in a wide variety of modalities (types of therapy), training and experiential ways of working . This is reflected in the integrative, powerful and unique provision that I offer to my clients. The way I work enables my clients to make changes on all levels of their lives- emotionally, physically, and energetically.

My mainstream training includes my experience and qualifications as counsellor and psychotherapist, registered and accredited with BACP. I hold a B.Sc. degree in Psychology and have extensive training in brain functioning and the nervous system, the effects of stress and trauma on the body, anxiety, and accessing and working with unconscious processes.

I am qualified trauma sensitive HeartMath practitioner which is used in sessions to help my clients access their own heart intelligence and resilience. Using HeartMath supports clients to work with and understand their nervous system and how to regulate this through the heart. It also provides a gateway to accessing your full potential on many levels.

The over riding influence of my approach comes from my qualification, training and experience as a shamanic practitioner. This way of working enables clients to make changes on all levels of their lives- emotionally, physically, and energetically. It also complements and deepens the ways I can support clients through my mainstream training.

My training, qualifications and experience are wide and varied they also include working with trauma and attachment, safeguarding, Polyvagal theory,  energy healing and transformation, alchemy, elements, sand tray, story and metaphor, imagery and active imagination and creative modalities.

Further information

Booking an appointment

When booking an appointment, you are normally aware that something is not working; this is can be a physical problem, emotional issue or life circumstance that is no longer serving you. I work with a diverse and wide range of needs.

Prior to booking an appointment we would arrange a time to discuss your needs over the telephone. This is a free no obligation conversation and usually takes about 15 minutes. We can then decide if we'd like to work together and if I'm the right person to support you.

I provide sessions online via Zoom for new clients and a limited number of face to face session for longer term client's who wish to learn more about shamanism. 

After your first session you can decide if you would like to continue working with me; if you choose to continue, we will think about what will work best for you and meet your needs. Some clients attend for a number of sessions, then make appointments when needed, some have longer terms therapy- accessing weekly or bi-weekly sessions.
