I offer therapy services to those interested in improving their health and relationships.
Health Therapy Services
Individual Health Therapy – for those wishing to develop a more comfortable and joyful relationship with their body and make changes in areas related to general health and well-being.
Common focus areas:
- improving physical fitness
- improving emotional well-being and reducing stress
- changing habits/ practices – including smoking, eating, exercising and taking time out
- learning how to talk to your body and respond to it’s messages
- understanding symptoms of dis-ease
Process / structure:
We will meet for an introductory session, lasting one and a half hours, in which we will talk about your relevant personal history, how life is right now for you and your objectives for our work together. You will have an experience of working with me and understand better how we might specifically work together to meet your objectives. At the end of this session you will be in a position to decide whether you would like to continue.
Future sessions, lasting one hour, will build on this and be focused on providing you with the tools and learnings necessary to meet your objectives.
In between sessions, you will likely be asked to focus your attention in certain areas and build on what has been discussed in the previous session.
At the end of each session we will decide together on the optimum time to meet again (usually within one to two weeks). We will regularly review your progress and re-design the way forward for you.

Reverse Therapy (RT)
Reverse Therapy is for those wishing to restore balance to their body, by acting on the message of their symptoms. The purpose of this treatment is to relieve the symptoms of M.E. / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and other conditions.
- shifting attention from being in your head to being in your body – including focusing skills
- increasing awareness of body and “symptom messaging”
- understanding how your body talks to you in an effort to get your needs met
- learning how to repsond to / act on the message of your symptoms, thus restoring balance and harmony to your body
Process / structure:
We will meet for an introductory session, lasting upto one and a quarter hours, in which I will introduce you to the RT model and explain how your symptoms are produced. We will talk about the RT process and our roles in this work together. We will begin the process of discovering the message of your symptoms.
In subsequent sessions, lasting one hour, we will continue this work and identify the ways in which you might respond to/ act on your symptom message. In between sessions, you will use a journal to evaluate the effectiveness of your symptom message and this will help us to refine and evolve your message as necessary. You will learn focusing skills and develop a greater awareness of your body and how to work with it to maintain balance and health. You will experience resolution or significant reduction in symptoms as a result of this work.
