About Me

I have been a mental health nurse for almost thirty years and have training and experience in almost every area including Child and Adolescent, Adult Acute and Older Peoples Care. My experience includes In-Patient Care and Community Practice as well as Crisis Intervention.

I have practised  complementary therapies for about twenty years. These include Solution Focused Therapy, Gut and Psychology Syndrome, Vitali-Chi and Progressive Kinesiology. In my practice I help prevent and treat mental health problems by working corroboratively with the patient through counselling, medication monitoring and lifestyle management using conventional and complementary therapies where appropriate.
