I am a qualified and registered Counsellor (MBACP), with a Clinical Diploma (Metanoia) and BSc (Hons) in Humanistic Counselling. My most substantial counselling experience includes work with anxiety, depression, cancer care (patients, bereaved, and carers/family through my work at the Mulberry Center), and in the corporate environment. 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 (Registered UK Reiki Federation). 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 practice I teach Reiki and co-facilitate a Red Tent women's gathering, and I am an Assistant/Intern Tutor at the Metanoia Institute.
