I am a Gestalt psychotherapist, specialising in Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Therapy (IoPT), the trauma work developed by Professor Franz Ruppert. I have been in practice since 1989. Since 2005 I have studied intensively with Professor Ruppert, and my work is now entirely focused on IoPT psychotrauma work.
Since the Covid-19 lockdown I have been working online, open workshops, individual sessions, supervision and professional learning events. Before the lockdown I also taught courses in Singapore, Utrecht and Istanbul, and work with practitioners in The Netherlands. I have facilitated open seminars in Utrecht, USA, Berlin, Oslo, Brazil, Israel and Romania, and online in Moscow.
I edited all of the English translations of Franz Ruppert's books, published by Green Balloon Publishing, a partnership which I established in 2008 with John Mitchell. I have written four books myself, one on Family Constellations and two on IoPT work with a third due for publication in June 2021; you can find out more on the BOOKS page.
My other passion is my place in Wiltshire, just off Salisbury Plain, where I am 're-wilding' 2.5 acres of what was horse paddock. It is an exciting project, that is constantly changing, and growing.
Where the wood is, there are now young trees, and now on every tree you can find a variety of insects... and where there are insects will come creatures that feed on insects.
