My qualifications

Due to the integration of mind-body-spirit-environment, many of my learned skills and qualifications, when applied, impact the whole person. Nevertheless, the following list reflects the breadth of my interests, studies and that which helps inform my personal life and professional practice. I consider it very important that I am well qualified, widely informed, and continually growing myself when working holistically with people – as this allows me to better understand, adapt to, and meet each person’s needs.
