ABOUT ME

I have a Masters degree in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy accredited by Middlesex University, London and I hold a Diploma in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy from the Institute of Psychosynthesis in London. I am a member of the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and am a UKCP registered and qualified Psychotherapist and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and am bound by the UKCP code of ethics and standards of practice.

Alongside my therapeutic background, I have also practiced yoga and dance. Through these experiences I have become attuned to the body, somatisation and how we hold our physicality in response to daily living and life traumas. Yoga and dance are essentially mindful practices and I apply these mindfulness techniques and body awareness to my therapeutic work. I am curious about the moment by moment unfolding somatic experience and its relationship to the therapeutic work. 

I am also an accredited Veriditas Labyrinth Faciliator and I work with the metaphor of the labyrinth in personal healing and therapeutic work. I run weekend workshops and holiday retreats using the labyrinth as a metaphor for our life journey, incorporating my love of dance, music, yoga and meditation. 

Prior to establishing my own business in 2001 (www.alchemy-consulting.eu), I worked for PwC where I held a variety of leadership roles. My last position there was as an organisation and leadership development specialist and senior consultant providing advice to internal as well as external clients. 

I speak good French and German, with English as mother tongue. I also speak a little Greek, having lived in Greece for over eight years. I have an Honours degree in Modern Languages, am a Chartered Member of the CIPD, and am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. I am also a qualified yoga and meditation teacher.
