Therapeutic interventions I employ are eclectic and integrative, utilising a combination of Hypnotherapy, Cognitive therapy, Psychotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Counselling, and mindfulness. I incorporate the principles of positive psychology, transpersonal psychology, and Compassion focused therapy. I trained in Compassion focused therapy with Professor Paul Gilbert in 2011. This is a CBT based therapeutic approach based on the principles of the research undertaken in evolutionary psychology concerning the emotional systems identified within the brain. Specialist interests include: Anxiety, OCD (Obsessive Compulsive disorder) using a combination of Cognitive behavioural counselling and Hypnotherapy, based on the work of Professor Jeffrey Schwartz and the 4 step programme.

Some years ago I completed the 8 week MBSR course with Sarah Talbot. I have completed a one year training with the Mindfulness Association and am a member of The mindfulness Association Mindful Self Compassion has changed my life for the better in so many ways, both personally and professionally, and I live in daily gratitude for all that I have been taught by those who have walked before me and led the way. It has been particularly helpful in enabling me to manage and adapt to the limitations of CFS and Fibromyalgia- it has eased my physical and emotional pain. There is no looking back for me now and my passion is to share this knowledge and the practices that have given me a quality of life I could have never imagined. I have been fortunate enough to complete the Mindful Self Compassion intensive programme twice up on Holy Isle with Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer before completing my MSC teacher training with Kristin, Chris, and Michelle Becker, and Steve Hickman - the MSC teacher training team from The Centre for Mindful Self- Compassion, at Bangor University in July 2014. After successfully completing the Mindful Self-Compassion teacher training this summer, I am one of the very first cohort of European teachers trained to teach the 8 week MSC course. I have a regular meditation practice and include gratitude practice and loving kindness meditation in my daily formal practice. Some years ago I completed the MBSR with Sarah Talbot so, I am really pleased to be coming home so to speak to teaching mindful self-compassion to share the MSC programme which is a beautiful and natural progression from the MBSR for anyone wishing to continue to develop and deepen their mindfulness practice. I have completed a one year training with the Mindfulness Association and am a member of The mindfulness Association As part of my ongoing commitment to my mindfulness practice and my own well-being, I take regular retreats up at Samye ling in Scotland and at Blythe House Hospice day retreats under the compassionate expertise and guidance of my meditation teacher David Oldham.
