I trained with Sonia Moriceau at the Healing Shiatsu Education Centre from 1985 to 1991.
I completed a year long postgraduate course in Shiatsu diagnosis, theory and clinical application with the Shiatsu College in 2010.
I have taken several courses including treating backpain, shoulder and neck problems and diagnosis with Dan Stretton in London and Edinburgh.
I have studied Shiatsu Shin Tai with Kulwinder Kaur in Nottingham.
I have a level 4 professional diploma in integrative counselling from Lambeth College.
I have a professional diploma in the teaching of Qigong from the Shiatsu college and have been teaching since 2015
I have a professional qualification in teaching Qi Gong from the Shiatsu College.
I am particularly interested in postural correction and developing greater body awareness and the psychological benefits that accrue from greater physical relaxation and integration of life experience.
I have worked with clients dealing with back pain; shoulder and neck pain; depression and anxiety; joint stiffness and mobility problems.
I use psychodynamic and person-centred approaches to create an empathic environment where a client can explore the material they want to address. I have worked with clients dealing with depression, anxiety, divorce, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, bereavement, bullying and relationship issues.
I believe in the body's capacity to heal itself and see my role as helping the client get in touch with their healing resources. Through an empathic approach to bodywork, the practitioner enables the client to relax and let go of habitual tensions which maybe causing a stagnation in the exchange of energy (Qi) and information through out the body.
As a counsellor, I believe that everyone has the capacity to find their own answers and that my role is to provide a secure and empathic environment where individuals can explore their issues without feeling judged or criticised. As the client learns to tell their story and process their feelings they develop a greater sense of self-worth and develop the confidence to make the choices they need to lead a happier more integrated life.
