I have a Diploma in Biodynamic Psychotherapy from the London School of Biodynamic Psychotherapy, and am an accredited member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I have a Diploma in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy from Resonance Trainings and am registered with the CSTA. I am also qualified in Biodynamic massage (LSBP)
I initially trained and worked as a Registered General Nurse for ten years. Whilst nursing, I specialised in cardiac care, and began to feel frustrated that I was unable to spend more time supporting my patient's emotional and psychological well being during these times of acute crisis, such was the pressure to perform (admittedly essential) routine nursing duties.
This led me to begin an honours degree in Psychology. Whilst studying for my degree I began personal Biodynamic psychotherapy. I had become aware there were issues from my past which were challenging me and I felt a supportive psychotherapy process could help. I was instinctively drawn to the body approach, and experienced it as a gradual and transformative path to deep organic healing. I have been involved in Biodynamic psychotherapy ever since that time, first as a client, then later through my training as a psychotherapist. I am currently involved in providing the Psychotherapy Diploma training programme at LSBP.
My current professional interests include a passionate exploration in the reclaiming of Divine Feminine consciousness and the cyclical nature of woman through the menstrual cycle, including times of transition and the menopause. I believe deeply in the support women can be to one another, and am involved in initiating and participating in Women's circles. I am also exploring the realms of Shamanism and am inspired by the symbolic power of mythology, astrology and dream work, and other forms of creativity, such as using imagery, drawing and dance/movement in psychotherapy.
