UKCP Accredited Psychotherapist

 

I started psychotherapy as a client many years ago when I realised that I had wounds from the past that I could not heal myself. I have a strong sense of social justice which led me as a young woman to train and practice as a legal aid lawyer working with homeless people and refugees. With my lawyer’s training, I was inclined to work through my problems on an intellectual basis but soon realized that my body was holding a lot of unexpressed emotional tension.

 

This led me to train as a Body Psychotherapist at The Chiron Centre for Body Psychotherapy, in London. My training focused on the integration of the mind and body. I qualified in 2006 and became accredited with the UKCP. I have worked primarily in private practice, also in a GP’s surgery, with employees in Employment Assistance Programmes, in a Drug and Alcohol agency and as a volunteer, counselling children in school with the Place2Be - the children’s counselling charity. 

 

I have practiced yoga and meditation for many years. These traditions teach acceptance and compassion, qualities which I aim to cultivate in myself and to bring into the therapy room. I have also experienced many body-work approaches and feel it is essential to include the body in all psychotherapy and counselling. I am interested in how people make meaning and purpose in their lives, broadly speaking, the spiritual aspect of life.  

 

I lived for 30 years in London and moved recently to a lovely Somerset village and am now surrounded by fields, trees and hills with cows and sheep and a few humans. I love nature and feel deeply connected with the earth, the seasons, plants and animals. I have a growing interest in Eco-psychology. I enjoy gardening, growing vegetables and walking in the country.

 

I believe that it is important to keep up to date with personal and professional development and remain deeply interested in what makes humans tick or not.  Please take a look at my website where I have listed my Continuing Professional Development portfolio.
