I have been working in the field of health and healing for over 30 years. I initially trained in Homoeopathy at the The School of Homeopathy which I started in 1984 and have practiced ever since.
A love of movement and a need to be more connected to my body led me to study with Sandra Reeve and subsequently train to teach 'Move into Life'. I also studied and apprenticed with Suprapto Suryodarmo in Java and the UK. Both of these teachers have been inspirational for me and my past studies with them continue to inform my work.
I begun teaching under the name of 'Healing Movement' in 1996 in the context of workshops, individual sessions and ongoing groups. Between 2002-2004 I facilitated a weekly group at Harmony Rehabilitation Centre for adults with addictions. Since 1997 my husband, Rob, and I have co-facilitated meditation and movement retreats in Tibetan Buddhism.
In 2002 I begun working with Ruth Noble who supported me as I begun to take my practice more in the direction of therapeutic healing. In 2009 I completed training with her in "Rhythmic Healing', which has deeply influenced how I work.
A dream gave me the awareness that I needed to study Plant Spirit Medicine with Eliot Cowan, a Tsaurirrikame (elder shaman) in the Mexican Huichol Tradition. This practice has changed my relationship to nature and opened many doors in my life. I have practiced Plant Spirit Medicine since qualifying in 2005 and am a clinical consultant for the Plant Spirit Medicine Seminary.
I began training in Mindfulness Based Core Process Psychotherapy in 2014, something I have wanted to do for a long time. I am excited to be able to offer this to new clients while also bringing these new skills into my other practices.
The common element in all my work is a relationship to 'Source' which holds me in a greater field of awareness, as well as helping to facilitating that in others.
My practice of Tibetan Tantric Meditation is a great support to all that I do in my work and life. My journey as a mother to two lovely young men is both a joy and a challenge to all that I think I know!
