My Approach

I utilise the natural creativity of each client and explore issues through verbal and movement interaction, object work, somatic awareness and mindfulness. Movement Psychotherapy is an integrated approach that incorporates psychodynamic and humanistic models of relationship while engaging the client in a whole-body process of discovery and self-awareness.

About Me

Since qualifying as a Dance Movement Therapist in 1990 (at Laban Centre London) I have gained further qualifications as a Certified Movement Analyst (CMA), a Sensorimotor Psychotherapist, and a Supervisor using Creative Approaches. My practice is with adults seeking relief from anxiety, depression, PTSD symptoms, chronic physical health issues, and relationship difficulties.

I work with

  • Couples
  • Groups
  • Individuals

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

Mental health is often impacted by abusive experiences in childhood and these are recognised as significant in a client's growing sense of self
Linked to early abuse, family violence, war trauma etc
Since COVID-19 there have been many long-covid symptoms which I believe Movement Psychotherapy, and especially my somatic approach, can help to relieve.
Using creative approaches when supervising individuals - online and face to face
Many people are recognising that PTSD comes in many forms - some more severe than others. However, all symptoms are distressing and movement and creative interaction can address seam deep-seated reactions and responses to everyday engagement in the world.
