  • Creativity
  • Inner relationship Focusing


Focusing takes you on a journey out of your thinking mind and into your feeling body, connecting you to your inner wisdom with curiosity and compassion. I love to combine it with creativity, exploring how giving the body another language to express itself can be both liberating and surprising!

What services do I offer?

1-1 Focusing sessions (in person or on-line)

Focusing and creative mark making courses
These courses explore how you really feel on the inside, including how it feels to let go of everything that is in the way of feeling good, how it feels to experience unconditional acceptance, and how nature supports and holds you when it is hard to show up for yourself. Creative mark making is a powerful tool that invites you to be led by your body and the marks IT wants to make rather than the image you think you want to see. There can often be profound and surprising insights!

My background in Focusing

I am an Artist, an Acupuncturist and a Focusing practitioner. I came to Focusing through my acupuncture studies when I experienced a physical block that prevented me from being able to continue my training. By exploring this block through Focusing I unearthed and processed some deep trauma in a very surprising and powerful way. This connection with something deeply profound within me not only enabled me to finish my studies but has given me much strength and comfort over the years.
I only recently decided to train as a practitioner and I now love to share this incredible tool and all the therapeutic benefits it can bring. Discovering how it combines with creativity has been an unexpected joy and I love how each and every one of us has a visual language within us just waiting to be expressed!
