I have over 20 years experience working therapeutically with individuals, groups and organisations offering training courses, workshops, coaching and body mind therapy. 

I work in a relational and reflective way and my approach focuses on the link between our feelings and thoughts and the impact this has on our capacity to

  • manage our emotions
  • learn
  • build relationships
  • make conscious behaviour choices that serve us well.

I see my role as a facilitator of a journey of discovery that enables people to find ways that help them increase their sense of well-being, embrace change where necessary and enhance their personal and organizational effectiveness.

I have a Diploma in Postural Integration, I am an accredited Protective Behaviours trainer and a Massage in Schools Programme (MISP) Instructor.
I attend relevant workshops and training regularly to ensure I continuously develop my skills, knowledge and experience.
