About me

I am a qualified counsellor and work in an integrative way. This means that I use different theoretical and practical approaches to try to follow what would be most useful for each person. I have also qualified as a somatic experiencing practitioner ( SEP) which means that I have studied and practise the work of Dr Peter Levine and others on trauma. many of us have experienced chronic trauma such as childhood difficulties as well as acute single events such as a car crash or attack. These methods aim to help a person become free of the effects of trauma without re-traumatising them ,for example by having to retell the story of what happened. Dr Levine demonstrated that trauma lives on in the body and the autonomic nervous system in particular so those are the areas one needs to work with.

I also offer kenshin anma shiatsu. This is a wonderful 75 minute massage, performed fully clothed, consisting of techniques such as gentle rhythmic motions, rocking, stretching, pressing, tapping, and percussive movements, which work on relaxing and energising the whole body. Kenshin means essence of health and anma means to spread peace with the hands. I offer single session or a series of five at a reduced rate.

I am also a qualified homeopath and can offer homeopathic consultations, also remotely at the moment.


The practice rooms where I work are warm, comfortable and quiet,and some are accessible for wheelchair users.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a therapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the therapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
