I am a qualified and registered Accredited Counsellor (MBACP Accred), with a Clinical Diploma (Metanoia) and BSc (Hons) in Humanistic Counselling. My most substantial counselling experience includes work with anxiety, depression, and cancer care (patients, bereaved, and carers/family through my work at the Mulberry Center). My particular area of interest is in body-based trauma and its multitude of knock-on effects (including somatic illness, anxiety, depression and 'shut down'), informed by my first therapeutic training and over 10 years experience as a bodyworker and Holistic Massage Therapist. I pay particular attention to 'energy', being a Reiki Master/Teacher. I have extensive therapeutic experience with horses as an equine massage and energy therapist and faculty member of the Healing Animals Organisation. Alongside my private therapy I facilitate a Red Tent women's gathering, and I am an Academic Lecturer at the Metanoia Institute on the BSc (Hons) Humanistic Counselling.
