Additional Information

I have lived in Farnham for twenty years, my Grandparents lived in Churt and

my Mother went to Farnham Art School, (as it was then known). I was brought

up in the Petersfield area attending Bedales school as a boarder.


My main job for the last 40 years has been as an actress working up and down the country (and abroad) in theatre/television/theatre- in -education and film but for some years I also ran a very successful catering business in London, and for a while a company teaching people interview skills when they

found themselves unemployed. Nowadays I spend a large part of my time helping people who have addictions/depression /post traumatic stress through

a process known as Equine Assisted Psychotherapy/Development. I work with a trained therapist and my four lovely horses that I have trained in the 'natural' way - sometimes known as 'horse whispering'. I also work on my own

with 'problem' horses.


I continue to coach acting on a one to one basis, write the odd copy for magazines and in between try to get on with writing my first novel.


I support various charities - amongst them ‘Compassion In World Farming’

and any that promote women’s education and equality worldwide.


I have assisted David Wylde for three years adjudicating the schools public speaking competition which has been very inspiring.


As a rider I am very conscious of the beauty of the fast disappearing countryside in our area and the need to conserve it as best we can for our benefits and other species.
