Thank you for visiting my website.
My work passion is to facilitate healing using a Trauma informed practice approach in Individual, Couples counselling and Group therapy. As a Trauma informed specialist, I am committed to a counselling practice that draws on the wisdom of the body and uses a variety of mind/ body techniques to assist in the release of trauma and aid the healing process. Another work-related passion is to teach Trauma informed Practice training to a wide variety of professionals in monthly workshops held on Zoom through Eventbrite. I believe practising from a Trauma informed perspective makes a dramatic difference as it deals with the root of the problem and is not just focused on symptoms that are a result of trauma.
HOPE - "It is as if our heart is attached to a butterfly's wings, lifting and alighting us, taking us into the ether where hope builds on more hope."
A last overriding work passion is to write. Some of my writing is healing related; Experiential Unity Theory and Model: Reclaiming Your Soul and Reclaim Your Soul: Your Path to Healing are both geared towards soul-based healing and transformation, and are aligned with Trauma informed Practice principles.
My writing often takes me on adventures across the globe. Often, I return back to Southern Africa, where I lived for 25 years, to revisit the haunting beauty of the untrammelled wilds. My novel When the River Wakes Up was inspired by my childhood experience in Zimbabwe when it was in the midst of a political crisis.
The second edition of Experiential Unity Theory and Model: Treating Trauma in Therapy addresses the impact of trauma prevalent in the field of group therapy and in individual counselling and proposes Experiential Unity theory and model as an effective treatment option. Read more...
