I'm currently working as a sessional therapist for Woodbourne Priory Hospital, a counsellor at NSPCC & Childline and also run a private counselling practice. I'm previous experience includes working for the NHS Specialist Division, Women's Aid, Place2Be and NHS Systemic Family Counselling Service. Prior to my current field of work I worked as a dance artist generating film installations for gallery spaces and working within the community in health & educational dance settings. I established a number of community dance projects with funding from the Arts Council of England, Princes Trust and City Councils. Whilst completing the Master of Arts I focused on developing my interest in Somatics through undertaking somatic environmental movement training with Helen Poynor in Devon, and training in the USA with American Dance-Health pioneer Anna Halprin after receiving the Lisa Ullmann Dance Award. With recently completing the Master of Science research I am now looking to integrate my previous research of movement in the natural environment with my current line of work. Interests: Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy, Dance-in-Health, Somatic Therapy.
