Hello you may have arrived here in search of support and clarity or to understand some issues that may have had a profound impact within your life. If you are looking for support and guidance through a challenging situation or you’re just ready to move into a new direction in your life I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. I predominantly work one on one with adults at my practice located in Brighton. I began my professional life as a clinical counsellor in a Neurofeedback (EEG brain training) clinic 15 years ago working with children, adolescents and adults with a range of conditions.
I then came across Kinesiology, a central component to my practice. Kinesiology works primarily with energy and the subconscious part of our mind which accesses the 'root' core issues in your body which are outside of our awareness. These core issues may be on a chemical, structural, nutritional, emotional or cognitive level.
Kinesiology uses a holistic integrative approach through a hybrid of Chiropractic, Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine, Nutrition and much more. I have always believed that the human body is a powerful tool and is the first point of contact in understanding who we are and in a safe environment we can reconnect with our innate ability to self-heal.
