First and foremost I think of myself as a therapist, then as a coach and author.  I qualified as a 'Person Centred' Therapist and Reiki Master Practitioner January 2006. Through my training I worked as a volunteer counsellor for No.22, a youth counselling agency and as a school counsellor at Desborough Road School, both in Maidenhead.  I started in private practice in March 2006 and have been working with individuals and couples ever since.

What happens in a Reiki session?

Combining Therapies

I facilitate a local personal and professional development group for qualified counsellors/ psychotherapists of various modalities that meets monthly.  I read extensively on all areas relating to psychotherapy and behavioural issues, with particular interest in learning disabilities. 

I am dyslexic with some potential OCD tendancies, I have two sons who are dyslexic, one with slight aspergers tendancies and the other with very mild autistic tendencies.  I home educated one son from aged 10 and ran a support group for other local home educators at the same time.  Said son is now a university.

In my life todate I have had some really low points, these include family breakup, a liquidated company, poverty, a disabling fall with chronic pain, emergency labour, a long-term sick child, a son emigrating, and loss of both parents.  These of course were interspersed with other life-changing events that have made me into the therapist that I am today.  I consider that life experiences are essential to a psychotherapists ability to emapthise and be non-judgemental. 

I cannot experience every awful event that you may have experienced, but some of the low places I have been do help me to put myself in your place, to know that no one is infallible - we all mess up, and sometimes we need a non-judgmental helping hand to get back on track.  To give you energy when you are flagging.  To calm the murky waters inside.  To give clarity to problems and situations - that's what I do.

I also love Reiki.  I love talking about Reiki.  I love giving Reiki.  I love being given Reiki.  I regularly teach Reiki from beginner - level one, through intermediate - level two, up to Master Practitioner.  I run regular workshops for two students at a time, at my therapy room in High Wycombe.  I also run larger workshops across the country, usually by invitation of a group.  I've written one hard copy book on Reiki and three kindle books so far, with another Reiki book in the pipeline.

I have a tendancy to mentally move quickly, which is why relationship coaching appeals to me.  Sometimes rather than do your process I understand that you just need a professional to share what they know, and to explain some of their hard learnt knowledge so you can grasp the bull-by-the-horns and make changes that will positively impact on your world - that's also what I do.  And often it works best for everyone if I do a bit of everything Reiki, Psychotherapy and Coaching.
