‘If you want to hold the beautiful one, hold yourself to yourself”
In the last twenty five years I have worked in the healing arts fine-tuning my access to the imaginal, the creative and the embodied feminine. I qualified as a Community Arts Facilitator at the Cork Crawford College of Art & Design . This enabled me to work therapeutically and creatively with community projects for young people with disability, addiction, and mental health issues.
I am a qualified Yoga Teacher both with British Wheel of Yoga, and Yoga / Movement teacher with Kripalu Yoga, USA. I am co-creator of Contemporary Yoga Teacher Training here in Ireland where I have been involved in training teachers in the past.
I teach dance and ritual through Souldance an innovative movement practice that came out of my training with Shiva Rea in Trance Dance, together with other creative forms of awareness through movement. I have co-facilitated workshops in Family Constellations, and Self-Awareness through Movement for many years.
My work is a synthesis of several approaches Yoga, Somatic Movement, Meditation, Relaxation, Witness Movement, Movement as Contemplation. All of the above inform the way I work as a Core Process Psychotherapist. I have an MA in Core Process Psychotherapy and accredited with UKCP working in private practice here in Ireland.
My work continues to grow out of my own search for connection through creativity, grounded in day-to-day life, family, relationship and work.
I live in West Cork, a beautiful part of Ireland, with my partner and my dogs. Other areas of interest for me are music, art, fashion and design. I love poetry and animals.
Intention: My Intention is to create a safe and protective space where we can feel more ease and space in our bodies and our hearts, to breathe a little deeper, rest, and through our felt-sense explore ways of re-connecting to our true and wild nature.
