For over 20 years I have worked with Movement and Dance helping women to come home to their Bodies and to their Sexuality. Many of these Women are Survivors of sexual abuse and domestic violence and we worked together to help them Reclaim and Empower themselves and their bodies. I then went on to complete in 2009 a training in creative arts and wilderness therapy in the UK and finally in 2015 completed an MA in Creative Arts Psychotherapy in Madrid.
I currently run a private practice here in Spain and work with all age ranges and collectives. My specialty resides in Listening and Adapting to my client’s unique needs and to their current situation, from here onwards commences the therapeutic process.
I work closely with the main educational psychologist in Primary and Secondary schools in my area of Spain. I facilitate spaces of both coaching and therapy for parents and their children. Frequent issues that I address include; Anger Management, Separation Anxiety, Grief Management, Lack of Confidence, Divorce, Bullying, Identity and Image issues.
I also accompany people who are terminally ill, preparing for their death and also suffering from the grief of having lost a loved one. I work with all age groups in this painful and delicate Transition of Loss.
I run workshops, retreats and courses for teachers and students in the educational system. These focus on improving Communication skills and Emotional Intelligence, through the creative arts. Within the class and educational system we look at how we can build a deeper sense of community through active Listening and Speaking from the Heart.
I have experience working in mental health applying group art therapy for day care patients suffering mainly from complex trauma, manic depression, bi polar disorder and schizophrenia. In 2016 I ran, with an associate, a Creative Arts and Animal Assisted Psychotherapy program for young male offenders at the Acebuche prison in Almeria.
In 2020 I published The Spinning Stones, a book of stone divination that strives to strengthen our connection to the elements, to the natural world and to ourselves, restoring balance on the ever turning wheel of life.
FREE SPIRIT MOVEMENT
FreeSpiritMovement personifies the essence of my work, service and dedication. This resides in accompanying and helping people Liberate themselves from that which is blocking them from living fully in the Beauty of their true Soul. The Hummingbird is a small and colourful bird that is in continuous movement feeding on the flowers nectar. It is a symbol of Unconditional Love, Adaptability, Resiliance and Joy.
FreeSpiritMovement enters into the mystery of our being, to See, Heal, Channel and Free and Recuperate our true essence and soul Connection. The wisdom of the intellect, heart and soul unite in an exquisite dance of pure love. and beauty
I offer individual Healing sessions, workshops, retreats and courses and have been facilitating Circles and Ceremonies for many years. These accompany and help people mark and honor the most important Life Transitions, Celebrating Life from birth to death.
My work is My Passion, and I am dedicated to sharing and offering a space that, from full presence, travels to the Heart and helps Self Love to Blossom and Thrive through the Arts, Dance, Mindfulness, Nature and Ceremony.
“My passion is dance… embodying and becoming… the movement … the waves caressing the shores edge … the leaves spiralling in the wind…. My Body .. a channel through which … the landscape and life moves and is shaped … a tapestry of colours and patterns ….evolve… transform…”
FreeSpiritMovement is a practice that combines and unites the diverse teachings and skills that I have received over the years, integrating Shamanism, Dance (from temples, whirling dervish, rituals etc), Mindful Movement, Art, Meditation, and Conscious Touch. Among them all there exists a common thread that is part of the same tapestry weaving life. It is in this Universal Connection that we break the boundaries of tradition and cultural barriers and allow ourselves to open up to Embody a new era of universal Awareness, understanding and Integration …. Which is … FreeSpiritMovement ….
“An integral practice of body, mind and soul express, communicate, build, feel, connect, share, transform, create and recreate your reality.
“The wound is the place where light enters you.”
