As a practitioner I am clear that each person has within them the wisdom to transform and to progress their emotional and physical health. This ‘person-centred’ perspective recognises each client’s inherent value and awareness. It is an approach which I hold dear as a therapist and from which I have benefited in my own personal development.
How I work
Having worked both as a therapist and an educationalist for many years, I incorporate the knowledge and experience from each discipline into my current Craniosacral Therapy practice.
I am trained in two very fine forms of psychotherapy based in Mindfulness and so in a Craniosacral session I may use techniques from either one when appropriate; Hakomi is a body-centred approach; Person-Centred Art Therapy uses art imaging; both employ mindfulness to access unconscious material and support health. I am happy to offer either of these as a full session if a client requests it. You can read more about these on the ‘Psychotherapy’ page.
Through teaching, I encountered many complex conditions in children which I now treat using Craniosacral Therapy. These young clients can benefit from improvement to their emotional health, their learning and their behaviour.
