I'm based in Bristol, England, and work as a Body psychotherapist, BACP-accredited counsellor, ecopsychologist, Wild therapist, supervisor and facilitator. I facilitate 'Wild therapy', ecopsychology public talks, courses, retreats and workshops, meditation/embodiment workshops and retreats, and workshops for those who are childless/childfree or immersed in the parenthood decision. I have written many articles and three books: 'Meditating with Character', which explores post-Reichian characture structure in relationship to meditation which was published by Mantra Books in 2012. 'Other than Mother: Choosing Childlessness with Life in Mind' which explores the decision as to whether or not to have children with environmental and ecological considerations in mind, published by Earth Books in 2016. And 'Bodywise - weaving somatic psychotherapy, ecodharma and the Buddha in everyday life' published by Somatic Psychotherapy Today in 2017, comprising of the articles I've written for Somatic Psychotherapy Today since 2012. I am currently co-editing my fourth book '#MeToo for Counselling and Psychotherpy'. My chapter focuses on the oppressive roots of sexual abuse and violence and ecocide. This book will be published in spring 2020 by PCCS Books. I am a former steering group member of Psycotherapists and Counsellors for Social Responsibility (PCSR) and for four years was the editor of its Transformations journals. I have practised Buddhism since 1995.
