I am a Body-Mind Psychotherapist, having qualified from The Chiron Centre in 1996. I have a fundamental belief in the embodied psyche, that the body and mind are mutually informative and mutually dependent in the developmental formation and evolution of the psyche and the sense of self. I also experience the embodied psyche as being relational, in a constant exchange of emotional information, psychological object, and energetic resonance; and the explicit and implicit relationship between myself and my clients is central to my work.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a diploma in Body Psychotherapy from The Chiron Centre for Body Psychotherapy, the initial phase completed in 1996, and the advanced qualification achieved in 1998. I have been practising since 1996.
Registered / Accredited
