I am a BACP Senior Accredited Therapist, Accredited Senior Supervisor with PTUK and Certified Accredited Play Therapist. For the past 20 years, I have worked as a Therapist in different settings with a range of clients from diverse backgrounds; before this I was a general nurse.
Initially I undertook an Advanced Sandplay Therapy training with Dr Sylvia Simonyi-Elmer. In 2012, I began my Jungian Sandplay training with Dr Barbara Turner in California. Of my own sandplay process, I cannot explain my experience other than it was beyond words, which was at an emotional and visceral level.
I am passionate about my work which is underpinned by a number of theoretical frameworks, key is attachment theory, child development, trauma principles, Rogers’ core conditions and Jungian theory.
I have a private practice whereby I adopt an integrative approach. I have a specialist interest in attachment and trauma working with individuals and families.
My Sandplay Therapy practice is based in Colchester, Essex and I am available to offer process work for those who are learning about Sandplay.
