My Special Interests are:
Much of my practice is working in GP surgeries in Wiltshire, particularly in Westbury, so working with depression,anxiety and stress which can be connected to many things. From this I have a developing interest in potential links between our mental and physical health -the effect on the body of our mental stresses. Perhaps dis-ease was the word used so long ago for disease that we forget to notice our own body's unease.
My first training was in nutrition and I worked in this area for many years leading me to have a specific interest in food and eating - and the role this plays in our life.Being passionate about both people and food makes this a natural area for me to work with now.
My previous experience also includes several years working with organisations in many different countries.I travelled extensively and spent time working with people from a wide range of cultures.
I am now settled near Westbury,Wiltshire with my two children which presents new delights and challenges with a focus around family dynamics - both the good and the not so good!
