About Me

My life has been a rich journey with many threads which include Focusing, Social Care work, Community Wellness work, Consultancy work, and research.  I feel these threads coming together with Focusing at the heart of all that I do.  I love introducing people to the delights of Focusing and have a regular programme of Focusing training.  I also offer one to one Focusing sessions to individuals.  I am a certified Focusing Trainer with the Focusing Institute in New York and a member of the British Focusing Teacher’s Association.  I have taught Focusing in the UK, Afghanistan as part of a Community Wellness project and I am currently working on a project to take Focusing into Palestine to help people to be with the trauma of war and occupation.


My background is in social care and this continues to be an interest.  I want to work with others to raise the status of social care workers and support the development of models of care where people can take control of the service they receive.  At the moment I am focusing on exploring the relationship between people receiving care services and those working in the sector and this was the Focus of my MA in Social Research with Birmingham University.  I am currently working with Safe and Settled, a social care organisation which helps people find the right care service for them, and I am an Advocate and a trustee of Ourway Self Advocacy.


In addition to Focusing training I run courses on “Living with Stress” and “Listening Skills for Care Givers”.


I am a practicing Quaker and am exploring the links between Spirituality and Focusing from the perspective of many faiths.
