I am private practitioner in Devon, Cornwall and the South West of England.
I am a registered dance movement psychotherapist and am passionate
My childhood was spent running wild, dancing and tumbling around on the hills of Dartmoor or moving with the rhythms of the ocean in Devon, here began my embodying the landscapes and relationships around me. Originally, I trained as a dancer, singer and performer, my speciality being jazz, choreography and improvisation. I have established successful careers in the arts, education and health.
My experience in dance movement/psychotherapy and counselling, includes work within:
NHS mental health hospitals/centres, where I pioneered and facilitated new groups in the intensive care wards, therapy and education centres, care homes, early years centres and schools.
I am clinically experienced with children, youth and adults, in the following areas:
Depression and anxiety, NHS/community acute and enduring mental health, family systemic work, parent and child issues, trauma, relationships, occupational/life stress, addiction/substance abuse recovery, autistic spectrum/developmental delay, learning disability, dementia, forensic.
As a practitioner I work as part of multidisciplinary teams and I am passionate about integrating
and raising awareness of dance movement psychotherapy as an intervention of value.
I believe in the power of learning and developing in relationship through movement and language,
this reshapes the way that we engage with the world. My approach is client centred, integrative
I have also worked within the following psychotherapeutic models: humanistic/existential, psychoanalytical, psychodynamic, recovery, developmental, systemic, mindfulness based.
