I am an energist, meaning that I specialise in energetic approaches to mind/body/spirit healing. It is my belief (and many scientific studies now confirm this as fact) that we cannot separate our emotional, spiritual and mental wellbeing from our physical wellbeing, they are interconnected and interdependent. I've dedicated the past 30 years to seeking out the best trainers in aromatic medicine, energy medicine and energy psychology. It is my pleasure and my passion to continually upgrade and update my skills and knowledge.
Anxiety, stress, worry, concern about all the myriad issues we are exposed to in this information-laden modern world, including confusion about our spiritual purpose, all impact our physical and mental wellbeing.
I am passionate about finding gentle, nurturing therapies that are effective in this respect. I feel blessed to have found EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques also known as Tapping) and hypnotherapy, Emotion Code, Reiki, and more recently Quantum Biofeedback and Mindfulness training, each of which can help to release physical, emotional and spiritual pain and bring us back to a state of balance.
I am registered as an EFT Master trainer and practitioner with AAMET the largest professional, international organisation for practitioners and trainers of Meridian Energy Techniques also known as Energy Psychology. Accessing that site will enable you to check my credentials by searching in either practitioner or trainer sections, and to read about the growing research evidence that indicates the powerful potential of EFT to help a variety of mental and emotional states of imbalance. I am also registered on Nick Ortner's The Tapping Solution list of practitioners.
I am registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) which provides a single, independent register for practitioners who meet a common set of standards and professional criteria. In addition to general therapeutic techniques I have additionally undertaken specialised training in order to effectively support people become non-smokers, to release unwanted excess weight, to help those dealing with trauma and to support people living with cancer. Once again, accessing this site will allow you to check my credentials and also to discover all the wonderful things this professional association is achieving.
Healers' Library is where Dr Brad Nelson, the creator of Emotion Code and Body Code provides free information on his techniques and hosts a worldwide list of certified accredited practitioners. Once again, if you go to this site you can satisfy yourself that I am fully qualified to offer the techniques referred to in this website.
More recently I qualified as a teacher of Mindfulness Meditation after studying with the UK College of Mindfulness Meditation and now offer 1-1 sessions and workshops/courses.
In addition to the above I am also qualified in Reiki, Touch for Health Kinesiology, Reflexology and Aromatic Medicine . If necessary I can integrate aspects of some of the above into one session in order to fully meet the needs of an individual on a number of different levels.
Each of the techniques listed above has enabled huge changes to my life, and I am confident they can do the same for you. When you are ready.
My consulting room is in the garden of my home in Liverpool. No matter the season this garden is home to a variety of birds, a family of squirrels and a visiting cat or two. Despite occasional conflicts of interest, we all manage to peacefully co-exist.
In addition to face to face sessions at my therapy rooms, I also work with people from other parts of UK and the wider world thanks to the wonders of Skype.
