Movement Psychotherapy

If you have found this page because you are experiencing emotional difficulties in your life, help is available.

My experience is that having a safe, confidential non-judgemental space to talk, to step back from the daily grind and to be actively listened to gives precious time to examine and explore what is hindering you.

I offer movement psychotherapy a space where we can make sense of what is troubling you and help you by focusing on the non-verbal together with the spoken word.

To book a trial session to find out if this is for you:
Contact me on 07960 793 670 or Email to arrange a session with no obligation to book further sessions. This session will cost £50 for the hour long session.

Movement psychotherapy may seem a scary proposition, in practice we are shining a light on and listening to our bodies and movements as well as our mind. This may mean e.g. that we sit and talk and notice how you are sitting, what is this posture saying or doing for you. It sounds simple and yet you and I can begin to be aware of what you are carrying (embodying) about yourself and your life. Moving the body differently can also help to change patterns of thinking and behaving.  Neuroscience research suggests that moving a body produces a sense of agency so e.g. feelings of anxiety can be transformed into a sense of being in control. Movement can restore the mind and body working together rather than in opposition.

Accreditation / Registration

I am a registered member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and The Association for Dance Movement Psychotherapy (ADMP). ADMP issues my License to Practice in the UK which includes registration for being in Private Practice and being a Clinical Supervisor. I have public and professional liability insurance, an enhanced DBS certificate and abide by the code of ethics of both UKCP and ADMP.  I receive regular supervision with a registered Clincial Supervisor.


I specialise in communication skills with people with learning disabilities who have profound and multiple disabilities, complex needs and challenging behaviours.  Training is centred on how to develop meaningful communication with the person.  As a result of working in the care sector, my experience is that if the staff team is considered as an important resource, the organisation / business provides a better service.  I offer reflexive practice and mental and physical wellbeing coaching and training.

What to expect

I offer a confidential, non-judgemental and private space for us to reflect on your thoughts, feelings and life situation.  The therapy space offers you an environment in which you can express your feelings and gain a deeper insight into the issues you face.

We will aim to help you find better ways to cope, or bring about changes in the way you think and behave to improve your mental and emotional wellbeing.
