Founder and Managing Director
My career journey in mental health has been long and varied, from Nursing Assistant to Registered Nurse in the late 70s/early 80s to private practice therapist in Harley Street in 2009.
My book, "Behind the Smile" goes into much more detail, but suffice to say, I have gained huge insights into mental health and addictions, due to my own lived experience of addiction and depression.
I have always had an interest in working with trauma and have been inspired by the work of Bessel van der Kolk, Janina Fisher and Peter Levine whose methods dove-tail beautifully with my equine facilitated work as it is generally non-verbal and somatic in nature.
I have just completed my certification as a Clinical Trauma Professional with Janina Fisher and am excited about the new and exciting work which can also be done in face to face sessions without the need for too much narrative.
