During my life journey so far I have accepted opportunities, encountered many experiences and undertaken much training, therefore have a rich tapestry of skills and knowledge in my professional practice.

I have worked in different establishments with varying age groups from new-born babies in a Maternity Hospital to the aged in an Old People Home; from residential schools as a House-matron to teaching photography to Art and Media students.

I have attended many short courses that have continued to inspire and teach me. A few workshops that stand out in my memory are:

* ‘Care of the Soul’ with Thomas Moore & Jenny Mackewn in Bath
* ‘Healing Through the Family Soul’ with Philippa Lubbock in London
* ‘Dissociation, Trauma, Attachment’ with Norma Howes in Portsmouth
* ‘Music Therapy’ with Professor June Boyce-Tillman, HACP
* ‘Play for Life’ - 3 day workshop, Chichester, Sussex
* Joseph Zinker Master Classes in Rugby and Hampshire
* Creativity and Imagination at the Institute for Arts and Therapy in Education, London
