I became interested in holistic medicine, talking therapies and natural healing through my own journey over 20 years ago, developing a belief that our lives sometimes become dominated by stress, pain or unfortunate life events and yet there is a way that we can naturally begin to restore the balance to our physical bodies and minds.
My counselling training was CPCAB/CSCT Integrative Diploma in Counselling; Diploma in Couples Counselling, OCN Certificate in Clinical Supervision; Certificate in Groupwork and I am also an Accredited Counsellor with the BACP. I have also undertaken additional training in a variety of specialised subjects listed on my counselling page.
I am Reiki I and II qualified and have trained / am fully qualified with the National Federation of Spiritual Healers (Healing Trust) and have studied additional courses in Acupressure, Crystal Therapy, Meditation, Trans-Kinesiology, EFT and various courses working with Healing Energy.

My experience has been over many years having worked in a therapy centre practicing holistic therapy and as an aromatherapist in a care home for those with disabilities, with the elderly and at a Hospice working with those with life limiting illnesses including cancer.
I have worked as a counsellor at Harrow Public School, managed a bereavement counselling service at a Hospice and worked with people with disabilities for such organisations as Mencap and with employees in the private sector (Employee Assistance Programmes) and worked as a drug & alcohol counsellor. I have had my own private practice as a counsellor, holistic therapist and healer for over 20 years.
