I have many years experience in therapeutic work with people in group, couple and one to one settings.
I trained in shiatsu in 1998 and now practice and teach shiatsu professionally. I am the Vice Principal of the Bristol School of Shiatsu, where I support the running of the school. I offer shiatsu sessions, tutorials and supervision in my practice.
I began training in psychoanalytic group therapy in 2000 and have run groups of various sorts since then, including group therapy and after-care groups whilst managing Chandos House addiction Rehab.
Since 2002 I have been involved with the Man Kind project, a rites of passage organisation working with men of all ages to encourage authenticity, accountability and integrity in themselves, and to cultivate dignity and respect in and for the world. Within this organisation I support the development of deeper and safer facilitation, so that change can be offered in a challenging yet safe way.
Since 2006 I began training in Shadow Work, I am now a certified Shadow Work Coach and Group facilitator, having worked in the U.K, Russia and The U.S.A.
I am a BACP registered gestalt psychotherpaist, with an M.A in individual and group psychotherapy from the London Gestalt Centre.
I also work as a registered therapist for the Rainbow Program, supporting adults healing from sexual and physical abuse.
I am a fully registered and insured member of the Shiatsu Society (MRSS).
I am under mentor-ship and supervision in my various therapeutic disciplines.
