About me and my therapy practice

Breathwork Training

I am an experienced psychotherapist, health coach & athlete offering breathwork training for anxiety, depression & personal development.  

We spend 100% of our lives breathing. 

Breathwork is use of voluntary breath patterns to access our stress response and activate the entirety of our brain. It is more dynamic than meditation and is proven to improve resilience both physically and mentally. 

I currently offer in person or online 1:1 training sessions. 

Practice description

If you are saying things like ' I should be enjoying myself but I'm not' or 'I can't go on like this, my mood is so low', maybe you're having the occasional meltdown or you just feel you aren't functioning at your best, breathwork can help you.  

This active, switched-on method for accessing and influencing your stress response can help you:

-Enjoy life more

-Be more present with loved ones

-Lower anxiety

-Raise mood
