I am a teacher, dancer, artist, psychotherapist, human being and lover of life.
My background is in the arts. I graduated from Camberwell School of Art, and did my post graduate at the Slade. As a painter in London I exhibited and taught before becoming involved in the human potential movement in the 70s. I became an international workshop leader, working in both the public and business worlds.In the 80s I trained as a counsellor and psychotherapist (UKCP reg.), working in medical settings and the NHS as well as privately. I have taught psychotherapy, and now run a private practice in Bath.I have completed the leadership training of the Marion Woodman Foundation and am trained in Family Constellations work. I am an ongoing student of the Ridhwan School’s Diamond Approach to Inner Realisation.I first started dancing Gabrielle Roth’s 5 Rhythms in 1996 and was accredited to teach both the Waves and Heartbeat levels of this work by Gabrielle in 2000 and 2007 respectively. As well as facilitating classes and workshops for the general public I have taken this work into hospitals, rehab centres and schools. Susannah and Ya’Acov Darling Khan were my teachers for many years and I was on staff for the School of Movement Medicine until 2018.I have been an accredited Open Floor teacher since August 2017.The dance has helped me through challenging times, through heartbreak, desolation, questioning and joy. It has given me more flexibility, more breath, more love and a way home to myself.
