She draws on several contemporary developments (attachment theory, neurobiology, embodiment, trauma theory and infant research) as well as her training in AcuEnergetics. She is a teacher of MBSR and previously volunteered in the after-hours counselling program at ACON.  She has a Diploma of Contemporary Somatic Psychotherapy, Master of Counselling & Applied Psychotherapy with an MBA, BSc (Biochem) and extensive experience in the corporate world and life.  At the end of 2020, she and her business partner Ernst launched The Institute of Somatic Psychotherapy – offering training to mental health practitioners in integrating Somatic Psychotherapy into their practice.
