My Background

The training and experience relevant to my current Psychotherapy practice covers the fields of:




  • Clinical Psychology

  • Traditional Five Element Acupuncture

  • Energy Psychology

My first area of training and registration was in the field of Clinical Psychology which I completed in South Africa in 1991.  I am a Chartered Psychologist, Associate Fellow with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a member of the Division of Clinical Psychology.


I have worked in the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK since 1994: ten years in Adult Mental Health Services in England and the years since then leading the Staff Psychological Wellbeing Service for Hywel Dda University Health Board, West Wales.  As part of my career in mental health, I have undertaken ongoing professional development as well as a range of different training courses including:

  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

  • Group Analysis

  • Working with Personality Disorders

  • EMDR Level I, II and III

  • Certification to use the EQi and EQ360 assessment tools

  • Motivational Interviewing

My long standing interest in alternative medicine led me to study Traditional Five Element Acupuncture at the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Leamington Spa (UK).  I graduated with a BA Hons and Licentiate in Traditional Acupuncture in 2001.  I have also undertaken additional trainings in Tui Na, Japanese Acupuncture, Acupuncture for Pain, Acupuncture in Pregnancy and Dealing with Possession.

The field of Energy Psychology provided the perfect synergy for my enthusiasm for psychotherapy and my training in acupuncture and oriental medicine.  My Energy Psychology journey started in 2004 with EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and has grown to incorporate a range of techniques over time.  The training courses I have undertaken to date include:


  • Advanced Practitioner and Trainer of Meridian & Energy Therapies with the AMT (Association of Meridian Therapies) 2005

  • Advanced Practitioner and Trainer of EmoTrance with the AMT  2005

  • Mastering EFT with Serious Illness with Gary Craig  2005

  • Advanced Integrative Therapy (AIT) Basics  2009

  • Diplomate in Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACEP)  2010

  • Eden Energy Medicine with Donna Eden: Introduction  2010 and Five Day Intensive  2011

  • Introduction to Dynamic Energetic Healing (DEH) with Howard Brockman  2013

  • Intermediate Applications of Dynamic Energetic Healing (DEH) with Howard Brockman 27 June - 1 July 2014

I have also studied and worked with Roger Callahan's Thought Field Therapy (TFT), Tapas Flemming's Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT) and Phil Mollon's Psychoanalytic Energy Psychotherapy (PEP) and I also incorporate these techniques into my practice


My wonderful learning journey with Energy Psychology and Energy Psychotherapy continues and I attend conferences and workshops on a regular basis to extend my knowledge and skills.
