CURRICULUM VITAE

I am a Consultant Educational Psychologist, Chartered Psychologist, Registered Interpersonal Mediator, Registered Spiritual Healer, a Chartered Scientist and an Accredited Consultant of the Feng Shui Society (also an Executive member for many years), an Affiliate Member of the Association of Educational Psychologists, an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS), a Member of the Doctor-Healer Network, the World Federation for Mental Health, the Scientific and Medical Network, a Fellow of the Royal Society for Arts, and the Chairwoman of the Soul Therapy Association of Spiritual Healers, a nationally accredited healing organisation recognised by the British Alliance of Healing Associations (BAHA) and awarded the Stage 4 (highest level) Accreditation by UK Healers.  I am also registered with the Health Professions Council, the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council, UK Healers, the Science Council, and the National Register of Psychotherapists and Counsellors.  I am Past Chairwoman of the BAHA.

An Associate Member of the Parliamentary Group for Integrated Healthcare and a biographee in the International Who’s Who in Medicine, I am the Director of The Soul Therapy Centre (a training clinic for therapists and healers), with private consulting rooms at 10 Harley Street.  I have designed and delivered courses on Children With Special Educational Needs for the University of North London and set up the Educational Management Unit for the Kensington Consultation Centre, a training clinic for systemic psychotherapists and management consultants.  I consult to companies and support staff groups through significant times of stress or change.
  
I graduated with a BSc Honours Degree in Psychology from the University of Manchester in 1965, gained a Postgraduate Diploma in Educational Psychology from The London Child Guidance Training Centre (now the Department for Children and Families) at The Tavistock Institute for Human Relations in 1972, developed my skills in systemic psychotherapy at The Kensington Consultation Centre over many years studying with Peter Lang and his team, and then notably Gianfranco Cecchin and Luigi Boscolo of the Milan School of Family Therapy.  I hold a Certificate in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Training awarded by The Centre For Stress Management in 2006.   I am an Interpersonal Mediator, registered with the Law Society and the Open College Network.

Having established a reputation for unbiased assessments, I am consulted as an expert witness by the legal profession for medico-legal opinions and reports to Court, drawing on over fifty years’ professional experience.
 
I have built my successful private practice by clients’ word of mouth by helping individuals, couples, families and organisations to a deeper awareness of others and of their own emotional dynamics and spirituality in order to enrich the quality of their psychological wellbeing, their physical health, and their personal and working relationships.  A Happiness Teacher, trained by Robert Holden and Dr Patch Adams, I have also trained with Dr Bernie Siegel, the celebrated oncologist, pioneer of mind/body medicine and founder of ECaP (Exceptional Cancer Patients) Groups, Amelia Kinkade, the leading American psychic and author celebrated for her animal communication work, and US Major Paul H Smith, author of "The Most Secret Agent" and "Reading the Enemy's Mind - Inside Star Gate, America's Psychic Espionage Program", who trained the CIA's psychic spies in the technique of Remote Viewing.  Recently, I have successfully added the Living Information Forms Energy (LIFE) System, a state-of-the-art bioresonance system, and Reverse Speech, a revolutionary method of language analysis and accurate hypnotherapeutic treatment, to my range of treatments.

A Contributing Editor and Spiritual Healing Consultant on the Advisory Board of “Here’s Health” Magazine for whom I wrote a regular page, and a member of the BPS Media Panel, I have won several prizes for both my poetry and prose writing and am a popular, prolific writer and broadcaster on both radio and TV on a wide spectrum of psychology, spiritual healing, Feng Shui, integrated and complementary healthcare issues, and am quoted extensively in the media.  I am a Member Of The XL Circle, created by Roger Hamilton for people with "eXtraordinary Lives" who do business with integrity and give a percentage of their profits to charity.

I have presented many conference papers, seminars and workshops at, amongst others, The World Federation of Mental Health, The British Psychological Society, The Feng Shui Society, The Royal Society of Medicine, The Brightlife Trust, and The Scientific and Medical Network.
   
I have worked with the comedian Tim Vine on his one man show at the Edinburgh Festival, and with Tate Modern on their audio presentation for their permanent exhibition of the art of Cindy Sherman.  My work has been featured in the Living TV documentary about Harley Street consultants and also on on prime time BBC2’s observational documentary series: “Private Life of Harley Street” to which there was an enthusiastic response.  My favourite broadcast was for the celebrated veteran BBC producer of classic comedy programmes, Ian Guardhouse, in which I featured along with Morecambe & Wise, The Goons, George Melly & Stanley Unwin on Stephen Fry’s “The Joy Of Gibberish” on BBC  Radio 4.

My book, “A Year Of Spirituality”, ISBN 1-84072-331-9, published in 2003 by MQP in the UK and Andrews McMeel in the USA, received glowing endorsements from Dr Bernie Siegel and Amelia Kinkade. My poetry anthology, "Eternal Sparrow," ISBN 978-1-60860-535-4, was published in New York, USA by Strategic Book Publishing, 2009.  In 2016 I published "Bandit Burmilla Babies: Intimate conversations with a family of cats on love, pregnancy, birth, death, & separation," ISBN 978-1-5043-3871-4, a book about animal telepathy co-authored with Kathryn Ronayne, and have contributed a chapter to "Soulmates with Paws, Hooves and Wings," by Amelia Kinkade, ISBN-10: 1482521156 & ISBN-13: 978-1482521153, and I have also been invited by a Hollywood-based film director to write a feature film script on a spiritual topic.
