My original training was as a family/relationships therapist, body worker and group facilitator. For years, I wondered if I would ever find a way to bring these different skills and modalities together.  In 1988, in Sydney, I met some Tibetan Buddhist teachers and Process Psychology through Dr. Max Schupbach and  Dr. Arny Mindell.

I didn’t know it then, but my life was about to dramatically change. These seemingly ‘chance’ meetings led me to travel to many countries, including the high Himalayas and to the windswept coast of Yachats and Portland Oregon USA. To my delight and surprise, I discovered Process Work brought what I had already learnt under ‘one umbrella’, and also included the study and practice of Jung, Taoism, Buddhism, Couple and Family therapy, Worldwork, Shamanism and Coma work together, to name but a few.

Presently, I am passionate about, in myself and with others, following and deepening awareness and dreaming processes, becoming less stuck and more fluid in emotional and mental ‘states’ and discovering the essence of everything!

Process Psychology has led me to continue to learn and embody and share as a therapist, my deepest beliefs since childhood, of living fluidly from moment to moment with awareness, openness, transparency, inspiration and compassion and deeply believing, trusting and following all of who we really are.

I have been actively involved in Tibetan Buddhism for 20 years and have helped and worked for His Holiness, The Dalai Lama since 1996. I am also a writer and published author on Tibetan Buddhism.

"I love Process Work, because it really does work and allows us to deeply understand and follow who we truly are and gives us skills to relate to ourselves, others and life"
