After 15 years in England working with individuals and groups, I moved to the U.S. in 1997 to train in Somatic Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology & Health with prominent leaders in the field (Dr William Emerson, Ray Castellino). This is the study of life, embodiment, and spirituality and consciousness from the pre-conception through newborn period.
I was drawn to this deep, profound work because I needed to heal my own early imprints from the prenatal period. I offer deep, gentle, hands-on, experiential somatic work for all ages, and I am very fortunate to love my work.
My deepest wound happened in the womb at 5 weeks old, and has profoundly affected my life. I began healing my core wound in my early twenties, and have dramatically shifted from feeling terrified to enjoying a feeling of well being and integration. I no longer have to deal with regular terror. My healing journey has given me a deep and personal understanding of the huge influence womb and birth experiences have on all of us. I know first-hand that it is possible to heal from a traumatic prenatal experience, and I feel that somatic work is necessary for this healing to be effective.
I am writing a book that places early consciousness at the center of:
- Early parenting practices and secure attachment
This perspective will radically change how we:
- Bring our children into life
- Treat women, the sacred art of motherhood, and birthing
- Perceive babies from pre-conception through newborn
Bringing the spiritual and sacred into parenting creates a whole new paradigm for us all, and influences the future in a positive way.
I hold people in their deepest places with presence, sensitivity and authenticity. I am a mother, and a grandmother.
