I have been working as a counsellor for over twenty years. After completing my Diploma in Psychotherapy I went on to study Transpersonal Psychotherapy, which involves working with more spiritual aspects of people’s lives. I have continued to study many different aspects of psychology, counselling and healing. These include: Focusing, EFT, Holotropic Breathwork, Life Coaching, short courses in sexual abuse, post-traumatic stress, motivational interviewing and a three year Practitioner’s Course in Shamanism.

As well as working with clients of all kinds, for many years I ran a small counselling charity.

This is teaching people how to journey into non-ordinary reality in a safe way, so that they can contact their own healing spirits. It usually consists of six two-hour sessions, after which the clients are able to journey by themselves to gain healing and teaching.
