About me

As a chartered consultant counselling psychologist, transformational coach, and psychotherapeutic shamanistic practitioner my ‘curiosity’, about the world and past reflections from when I worked as a nurse observing the strength and resilience shown by patients in the face of often severe socio-economic hardship and adversity, led to my gaining the specialist qualifications and skills to better work with clients and groups across diverse populations and environments.

My working experiences incorporated working with the most vulnerable and socially deprived as well as the most affluent in society. The unusually broad scope of my work incorporates extensive working within adult mental health and social care settings providing therapeutic services for a variety of conditions including stress, anxiety, depression, phobia, OCD, anger management, autism, ADHD, relationship, work related stress and lifestyle. Within business organisations, the provisioning of bespoke tailored consultancy services and employee assistance. Within child services working with preteen, adolescent, young adults and their families including those groups living on the fringes of society and social care unable to access health and mental health services.

Within education working with head teachers in providing schools counselling services and mediation services, teaching programmes for vulnerable young adults in conjunction, with university education departments.

No one approach ‘fits all’ has been an early guiding philosophy in the psychotherapeutic services offered and is extended into the offering of Shamanistic Psychotherapy. An approach that bridges the growing emergent need for modern day shamanic practitioners for those clients seeking greater integrative, practical and pragmatic solutions to their daily life challenges and problems; ranging from anxiety-depression, lifestyle choice, wellbeing, identity, the intra-personal integration of psychedelic experiences, relationships, family discord to ancestral issues within an approach that honours all creation.
The guiding light that enshrines this work is ‘Humanity is passion', ‘across it’s multi-dimensional layers of global connection, citizenship, with reverence to life and ecology’. 'All peoples matter and are unique'.
