I have always had an interest in psychology and complementary health. This was increased by my own experience of recovering from M.E. after being ill for six and a half years. I went on to train in some of the techniques that had been most powerful for me in my journey back to full health. It also brought home to me how strong the link between mind and body is – often we have to work with both in order to fully heal.
I qualified as a Master NLP practitioner and EFT practitioner in 2010 and then went on to train with the European College of Bowen studies, qualifying as a Bowen therapist in 2012. Having spent much of my previous working life specialising in social and behavioural change, I am now committed to helping people in a more practical way to change and regain the life that they want.
I attend professional development training each year to further expand and deepen my knowledge. Some of the courses I have attended are as follows:

Having had a lifelong passion for horses, I also qualified as an Equine Bowen Therapist in 2016 after seeing its amazing results. It keeps my 24 year old thoroughbred going strong and also helps my 6 year old P.R.E. as he grows and builds muscle. It is often very helpful to treat both the rider and the horse at the same time, as asymmetries and issues in one will also be reflected in the other!
