Training, qualifications & experience
I've always been fascinated in the mind / body connection - how what we think and feel affects what we do and because of this, I trained in a number of specialist interventions that I blend into my practise. With over 30 years of experience so far, my professional and personal highlights includes; Appearance on ITN news, writing a chapter in published a book, several award nominations, developing Gloucestershire's NHS self-management programme, teaching Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping) to women in prison and completing the couch to 5k programme!
I'm the behaviour specialist for a children's charity, am an associate of DGF psychology and have a thriving private practise. I have lots of experience working online and I use accessible therapy rooms (in Gloucester & Cheltenham). Something a bit different about me is that I also offer home visits, "walk & talk" and "drive & thrive" sessions.
I am married and live in Hempsted, Gloucestershire, UK and have 2 daughters, a rescue cat called 'Spirt' and a very cute new puppy called 'Rosie'.
