I am an advanced trainee body psychotherapist at the Cambridge Body Psychotherapy Centre (CBPC), preparing to register with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I run my body psychotherapy practice from my home in Islington (N1), North London.
Before I was a psychotherapist I worked in the civil service, in property management and development, and spent 13 years as a massage therapist. These years have shown me how movement, touch, and working with the body can facilitate emotional change. I have always felt that health comes from a greater integration between mind and body, and I love that through body psychotherapy I can work with people in a way that fully supports this integration.
I trained in biodynamic massage at the London School of Biodynamic Psychotherapy (LSBP), and have since become the Professional Development officer for the Association of Biodynamic Massage Therapists (ABMT) and an assistant trainer in biodynamic massage at CBPC.
I have an M.A. in Human Sciences from Oxford University, and an M.Sc. in Complementary Medicine from University of Westminster. What I take from these into my psychotherapy practice is a real appreciation for just how holistic we are as people. I welcome the interconnection of the physical, emotional, mental, energetic, social, ecological, and spiritual aspects of our selves, and believe that by reclaiming the parts of ourselves that are more disparate, we can begin to find answers to our problems.
