About Me

My Practice
My Practice includes Focusing and Somatic Experiencing. I am a BFA (British Focusing Association) Certified Focusing Practitioner, and will start the advanced year of the Somatic Experiencing (SE) practitioner training in April.
I also bring to my practice my own experience of working through significant developmental trauma, as well as 26 years of experience working within holistic social care settings with children and adults with complex support needs.

I am passionate about this work having seen how it can facilitate deep change and transformation. It is a privilege for me to accompany others on their journey and to share my knowledge of Somatic Experiencing and Focusing.
