My approach as a core process psychotherapist is to offer a safe and non-judgemental space in which clients can explore experiences in their lives that may be causing difficulties, or those that they wish to take a deeper look at and understand more fully.


I meet all clients with compassion and curiosity, drawing on a wealth of life experience and over 20 years as a somatic therapist/Feldenkrais practitioner. 

There is now good evidence that the relationship between therapist and client is key to effective therapy, therefore I offer an initial 30-minute consultation free of charge. This will usually be in-person and we can discuss your intentions for coming to therapy.

What is Core Process Psychotherapy?

One of the original mindfulness-based psychotherapy modalities, Core Process Psychotherapy provides the tools to be able to live more in the present with clarity, compassion and self-acceptance. 

Core Process Psychotherapy can help with the following:​

  • Issues with self-esteem, confidence and assertiveness

  • Overwhelming emotion

  • Life transitions and undergoing change

  • Problems with anxiety, sadness, anger or shame

  • Obsessive thinking, paranoia and compulsive behaviour

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Bereavement and loss

  • Recovery from trauma and abuse

  • Stress

How, When & Where

After the initial 30-minute consultation, we can arrange to meet for an hour on a weekly basis. Each hour-long session costs £55 and will usually be in-person. This can be paid weekly.

I have a consultation room near Alresford, Winchester.

More About Me

I started my career in movement theatre, training at the École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq in Paris and then in Tokyo, where I practiced the Butoh dance method. Thereafter, I founded the internationally-acclaimed theatre company, Watson & Co., for which I directed and performed. I also directed the Jolt theatre company, an integrated company for able-bodied and disabled performers.

I qualified as a Feldenkrais practitioner in 1999, having undertaken a four-year training programme that is accredited by the International Training and Accreditation Board. Upon qualifying, I set up a practice, dividing my time between that and being a senior lecturer in performing arts at Winchester University.

Core Process Psychotherapy was a natural progression based on my experience. I started training with the Karuna Institute in 2021 and gained permission to practice in 2023.
