I'm resourced by a deep connection with the natural world, being within wilder environments, kind relationships and a love of learning.

I know from both personal experience and as a counsellor the transformation that naturally unfolds, from being in the safe, grounded and compassionate presence of another. This has supported me to foster my own presence and ability to rest into the present moment, trusting a deeper intelligence.

I feel passionate about healing and rest
oring health. Through a deep connection with nature, the natural world has revealed many different ways, that relationship with nature restore's health.

I have a particular interest in healing trauma and discovering how trauma effects our autonomic nervous system. Along with ways to relieve this stress within the mind and body.
 
My approach is Integrated, Person Centred, Transpersonal and Mindfulness based. Rooted in an ecological awareness, neuroscience and the polyvagal theory. Supported by over 25 years of personal meditation and mindfulness practice. 
 
I'm a member of BACP, maintain a commitment to adhere to the codes of ethics and practice. I attend a monthly one to one and two group supervisions sessions each month.
