Training and Speaking

I specialise in running CPD workshops, training days, and retreats for counsellors, therapists, health workers, end of life carers, and anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of who they are and to explore death and dying and end of life issues. I also facilitate pop up Death Cafes in Bradford on Avon, Bristol and Cirencester.

One-to-one sessions

As part of my work, I offer one-to-one sessions where I draw on long experience as a psychotherapist, mentor and Sensitive  to help you gain more insight into who you are, what your purpose is, and how your life journey is unfolding.

You are in charge of your life, and the choices you make. So your session is about helping you find clarity and confirmation about things that you may already know deep down anyway. This helps you to connect strongly with your heart intelligence, and to align with Quantum Consciousness and the wisdom of the Universe.

I am also offering Deep Adaptation sessions for people who want to talk about the changes that our world is currently experiencing and don’t know what to do about the fear and confusion they are feeling.

Cost: 

An individual session usually lasts up to three quarters of an hour,  and costs £40.

Apart from sessions at home (based in Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire), I offer sessions on Skype. Please include your Skype name when requesting a Skype session.
