  • With Bereavement and have particular experience in this area.

  • I have a particular interest in working with dreams and the imaginal in a contemplative and non interpretative way.

    I have a meditation practise of many years and have studied deeply and widely from the major traditions. I have worked with people who follow a particular Spiritual Tradition as well as those who have a Personal Spiritual approach or who have no particular spiritual perspective. This aspect of Self is an integral part of my work which has been of real value.
