My initial training, in 1990, was a 3 year Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy, with the Person-Centred Approach Institute International. I then trained
in Psychosynthesis with the Centre for Psychosynthesis Studies.
This was followed up with training in Person Centred Expressive Therapy, Arnie Mindel’s Process Work, and William Bloom’s Core Energy Management.
I have taken numerous other training and self-development courses and will continue to do so, as I am committed to my Continuing Professional Development. It is enriching to me to always expand and develop the way I work and what I offer as a therapist and coach.
My core work has developed from a lifetime’s passion for living from the heart, which has meant I’ve explored this in great depth over many years. There are several organisations and teachers that have particularly inspired my understanding and experience. The HeartMath® Institute
is obviously a major influence. Others include Christian Pankhurst, Tej Steiner,
Open Heart Meditation and The Institute of Applied Meditation.
I have regular supervision with a qualified supervisor.
I am a member of the Association for Coaching, and I abide by their Code of Ethics and Practice.
