About Me. Replacement about me
I have been a practising therapist in Chichester and Bognor Regis for the past 17 years. I originally studied Reflexology and Massage. Soon afterwards through wanting to increase and deepen my therapeutic skills and understanding, I trained as a Counsellor first to diploma, and then to a degree level. I then proceeded to gain wide experience in this field by working in a large Counselling organisation for over six years, alongside my busy private practice. I am deeply passionate about using natural ways to assist healing and growth and have a wealth of skills and experience to bring to each individual. I have over 20 years of meditation experience. I have sucessfully worked with a wide variety of circumstances and conditions, and specialise in treating Stress, Anxiety and Depression.
