Embodied-Relational Therapy Trainers
As an experienced psychotherapist, my passion is to support the process of people healing their distress, and growing more fully into their lives. I have worked in private practice with adults for many years, and have been employed as a therapist within the state education system, working with troubled children. I am a member of the ERT Practitioners Group, and the Ashburton IPN Forming Group.
I am a therapist and trainer with nearly 30 years experience. Originally a Reichian body therapist, my approach has become broad based and open to the spontaneous and unexpected. I have an MA in Psychoanalytic Studies, and have worked with Process Oriented Psychology and trained as a craniosacral therapist; I am currently involved with ecopsychology and addressing climate change. I have a grown up daughter. I have written several books, including Body Psychotherapy: An Introduction; Psychotherapy and Politics; Press When Illuminated: New and Selected Poems; and most recently, Wild Therapy, published by PCCS Books. I live in Calderdale with my partner and grow vegetables.
I am an experienced Embodied-Relational Psychotherapist, Supervisor and Trainer; working in private practise in Stroud, Gloucestershire. I have co-led the Embodied-Relational Therapy training with Nick Totton for the past six years. In 2006 I initiated GLOSNET (the Gloucestershire Networking Group for Counsellors and Psychotherapists) a county wide professional resource for practitioners. I am an accredited member of the European Association for Body Psychotherapy and the Chiron Association of Body Psychotherapists. My aim is to create safe, stimulating and stretching training and supervisory learning environments. I enjoy gardening, nature and dance.
I live and work in Hebden Bridge, West Yorks. I combine my passion for Embodied Relational Therapy, Wild Therapy & Shamanism, which supports ancient practices and lost rituals, both indoors and outdoors. I facilitate an embodied and relational experience of contacting our roots in this Land we walk, bringing deep connections with the ‘other than human’ and I look for sustainability in all areas of life. As well as being and ERT and Wild Therapy Trainer I also run my own workshops and trainings providing facilitation in wild and remote places for exploring Nature and the turning of the seasonal cycles.
