About me

Image-1Coming originally from a legal and commercial background where I worked as a manager and coach of people under a great deal of pressure and stress, my interest in the variety of ways people approached each challenge led me to embark upon a psychotherapy training at Regents University.

Qualifying as a UKCP registered psychotherapist and counsellor I went on to work as a psychotherapist with groups, individuals and couples in prisons, hospitals, counselling centres and in general practice.

I subsequently trained to be a clinical supervisor and consultant to other therapists and also started lecturing and teaching psychotherapy and counselling on Diploma and Masters level training courses.

As my journey continued both personally and professionally I developed a keen interest in the deep connection between mind and body. Knowledge that the two cannot be separated coupled with my interest in healing pain, suffering and mental distress, led me eventually led me to train as a Reiki Master Teacher.
