I am an HCPC registered art psychotherapist, working within the NHS and private practice since the 1998. I'd always kept my personal connection with land separate from my professional life, but in 2010, I decided to consciously reorganise my life bringing nature based therapies and practices into my work. Since then I have been developing a range of ecotherapy groups & practices, using ritual, bodywork, creative imagination and the arts out in the land. I co-facilitate The Circle of Trees group with Gary Nash in North London & have been developing an on-going elder women's group, workshops and immersive residential programmes with Deborah Kelly within the beautiful Powdermill woods in Sussex since 2014.
