Lecturer at Terapia Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Programme, London, Capstone Foster Care Agency in Devon, Registered Provider of Child Psychotherapy, South West England

Di originally trained as a drama teacher at Central School of Speech and Drama.  She trained as a dramatherapist in 1989 then as a play therapist a couple of years later.  She has worked in the NSPCC Child Sexual Abuse Consultancy, the NHS and largely in private practice.  Di currently works for a private foster care agency as a drama and play therapist and as a consultant to foster carers and social workers.  She has been a clinical supervisor since 1994. Di completed an MA in Buddhist Psychotherapy with the Karuna Institute, Devon, in 2012.  At that time, she believed she would end her practice as a drama and play therapist in order to practice as an adult psychotherapist, however, she discovered, with great joy, that Buddhism is exceptionally playful!  Her book, ‘‘Playful Awakening – Releasing the Gift of Play in Your Life’ (2017, Jessica Kingsley Publishers, London) was developed from her MA dissertation.

She is co-founder of the Sirona Therapeutic Horsemanship Project and has a lifelong passion for horses.  Di continues to supervision the Sirona team.

Di delivers a resilience training called the Challenge of Change (Derek Roger, 2017) and is studying to develop a playful, creative approach to building resilience in children and families.

Di lives in Devon with her husband, Branwell the cat and Mopperley her German Short-Haired Pointer.  Her daughter Tabby is currently training as a vet at Nottingham and son Dexter is studying at City University.
