“Have courage to trust love one more time and always one more time”- Maya Angelou
I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor (UKCP accredited) and a yoga therapist-teacher (BWY, Ayurveda dip). I have additional training in mindfulness, authentic movement and restorative movement psychotherapy for trauma. I combine my skills and experience to offer classes and therapy to groups, couples and individuals who benefit from a somatic focus.
Soma means ‘of the body’ and concerns our living, day to day, breathing, feeling, moving, thinking experiences. By listening to what is happening in our bodies in the here and now, we can explore our personal material and get to know ourselves with courage and acceptance.
Working with the body is a strength based approach, it generates vitality, creativity and personal growth. It supports individuals to find direction and wholeness to resolve/ dissolve any difficult issues or painful experiences.
I work with adults, young adults: couples, men and women. I am committed to diversity and will respect differences in culture, gender, sexual orientation, racial, class and religious background, age, body ability and shape..
I also offer therapy for peri natal mental health (women and men) and women’s well being, a field I have been working in for 16 years.
