Over the past decade I have been doing community-based work and one to one, body-oriented therapy for the last 6 years.
I have been delivering training, running workshops, coaching, mentoring and teaching for 16 years.
I have worked with Salford Royal Hospital, The Maggie's Centre at The Christie, Manchester Rape Crisis (with their clients and running professional training for their counsellors), Creative Living Centre (one to one sessions and groups), Mind (groups) and many private organisations. I see people across the whole mental health spectrum including in day care or medium secure hospitals and supported accommodation. I was a simulated patient and facilitator in communication and consultation skills at Manchester University School of Medicine for over 10 years, I’ve been published in Cambridge Scholars Addiction and Performance book (2014) and present at mental health events to raise awareness of the role the body plays in our mental health.
My integrative approach reflects my wide range of experience and training. This includes running groups in addiction recovery centres, probation services and community services as well as the vast trauma training I’ve had with Bessel van der Kolk, Gabor Maté, Peter Levine, Gary Carter, Ralf Marzen, Carolyn Spring, Lisa Kaley-Isley and Lucy Arnsby-Wilson to name a few.
