Some things you may want to know.
I have been, at various times, and sometimes altogether, a tutor of writing and language, a piano teacher, a poet, a gilder, a putter together of veg boxes, a mother, and a companion to a wise dog.
I am interested in the imaginal, the liminal, and the marginal, in language as a form of embodiment, in dreaming and in wildness.
I am also interested in the political context of psychotherapy, the way we carry our histories, both personal and collective, in the bones of us.
My therapy training and qualifications are in Embodied-Relational Therapy, Wild Therapy, and Group Facilitation.
I regularly attend workshops and trainings in support of my practice, and have monthly one to one supervision.
My first degree was in English Literature and I have a diploma in Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia.
I belong to ERTA, the Association for Embodied-Relational Therapists, which meets twice yearly, and to the Body Psychotherapy Network UK, where I’m a member of the Steering Group.

I am also a member of Therapy Network East, along with other locally based therapists who know, support and stand by my work.
Fees and such
I do try to keep some places at a reduced rate, for students or those on low income.
Please do get in touch if you feel drawn to working with me, and we can discuss what’s possible.
Payment is by bank transfer, and can be made weekly on the day, or monthly in advance.
I reserve the right to charge for sessions missed or cancelled with less than 24hrs notice.
Since the changes and restrictions around Coronavirus, I am working almost entirely by phone, or Zoom. I‘m finding that this works very well, it’s possible to work in an embodied and aware way through these media, and right now it seems to me to provide the best opportunity of working in a spontaneous, undefended way.
It also means that I’m available to work without geographical restriction.
