About My Work 

Holistic and Somatic Psychology is not about symptom elimination, but to see symptoms and behaviours as a way the body communicates and asks for a person’s conscious attention and awareness in relation to the problem. 

Additionally, in helping the person heal, this approach supports improved self-awareness, better self-esteem and self-acceptance.  Acceptance (of what is going on within) and relaxation are two important tenets of holistic and somatic psychology.

I am a supporter of my clients rather than diagnosing, fixing, curing or treating what is “wrong” with them. I offer activities, therapy models, stabilisation, psychological education and topics of conversation that will help clients grow and learn.

 I have written two holistic mental health and wellness books – “The Gateway” and “The Gateway – Junior Edition” series which are an introduction and modified version of my work with a choice for anyone to continue their journey. Both books are available on the ‘shop’ page.


My Approaches

My approaches support and empower clients through Western Psychological approaches such as trauma-focused EMDR  (eye-movement de-sensitisation re-processing), Advanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Biopsychological education, Biofeedback, Inner Child Therapy,  Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction), Western Psychology blended with Eastern philosophies and ancient time honoured techniques such as mindfulness, meditation, touch therapies and energy psychology. I have personally dealt with trauma, anxiety, panic and depression so my approach is from two perspectives, one as a survivor with hard won experience and as a trained practitioner. I can support clients to “treat” their symptoms and also take therapy a step further to discover the roots causes of emotional pain in a safe and professional environment.
