I have never felt so at home as when I'm deeply inhabiting my own body, feeling connected to nature and to those around me. My explorations have taken me to practice and teach various bodymind awareness practices such as yoga, meditation, dance, somatics, and bodywork... moving gradually from an individual enquiry to an exploration of the collective and transpersonal field of our shared being and our home the earth. I am passionate about awakening the natural intelligence of the body and allowing this to guide us, to become our inner teacher. The focus of my therapeutic work is on reconnection to Self, other and earth, the embodied imagination, and the healing of relational wounding and trauma.
I have worked as a Deputy Manager with Lothlorien Therapeutic Community in Scotland for many years, which is a beautiful residential project for people in recovery from mental health difficulties. I have my home base in Yorkshire where I live with my partner, his boys and our cats. I also spend my time in Glastonbury where we are creating a community arts/ retreat space for the exploration of embodied practice and meditation.
