I have a Diploma in Emotional Therapeutic Counselling and am committed to practicing ethically and safely. I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and have regular supervision. I am fully insured and am also a member of an Independent Practitioners Network group, which is a group of colleagues committed to supporting and challenging each other’s practice, and standing by each other’s work.
My approach to Embodied Therapy is based primarily on 'Body Listening', which is a humanistic, neo-reichian approach which I learned with Tim Brown of the Brighton School of Embodied Therapy. I also draw considerably on my three year (1600 hour) training in the Alexander Technique which taught me to approach hands-on work with awareness and sensitivity, and to encourage release, integration and transformation in a gentle and non-invasive way.
I work with a wide range of clients and issues, and have a particular interest in high sensitivity (Highly Sensitive People/HSP), introverts and being happily introverted, shyness, confidence and low-self esteem.
