Due to a childhood illness (rheumatic fever) which makes movement of any kind painful, and having reading difficulties, both parents worked full-time, which meant I had nearly a year by myself. I started to watch my thoughts and feelings which led me to discover my inner world.
During a stressful time, my dreams gave me guidance and solutions to my problems. In 1973 I met Tony Crisp www.dreamhawk.com and studied with him, how to work and gain information from my dreams. This work gave birth to my creativity that I use constantly as a way of processing, understanding, creating and healing.
I work using various skills to meet the individuals need, which could be counselling, using art for therapy or following body movements. It is the clients who have their own answers. I use my skills for them to discover them.
