My Practice includes Somatic Experiencing and Focusing and I’m a member of SEAUK (Somatic Experiencing Association UK), BFA (British Focusing Association) and TIFI (The International Focusing Institute).
I also bring to my practice my own experience of working through significant developmental trauma, as well as 26 years of experience working within therapeutic social care and education settings.
I'm passionate about this work having seen how it can facilitate deep change and transformation and it's a privilege for me to accompany others on their journey.Qualifications and Training
