has a wide interest in psychotherapy, healing, complementary therapies, spirituality, and the arts. Having been a social worker in Liverpool & the East End of London during the 1970s she then trained in subtle energy healing and therapeutic massage. She began psychotherapy training (humanistic & integrative) in 1988 and has been registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy since 1994. She is also a full member of the Association for Therapeutic Healers.
Delcia is a pioneer and loves to work at the interface of a number of healing modalities. She is a natural teacher with many years experience of facilitating both educational and therapy groups, particularly women’s groups. She taught healing and massage in Adult Education in London from 1983 to 1989. From 1992 to 2003 she co-directed The Rowan School for Healing where she ran a professional healer training programme. She has developed an in-depth knowledge of Chakra Psychology and runs meditation groups as well as a continued professional development course on this topic. Her book ‘Bodywork Therapies for Women’, which was commissioned by The Women’s Press, was published in the year 2000, and at that time she also produced a popular CD entitled ‘Opening to Self Healing’.
In North London Delcia runs monthly professional consultative and support groups for healers and bodywork therapists and has been successfully doing this since 1989. She also offers one to one supervision.
Delcia has a private practice working with individuals and couples in North London and South Lakeland, Cumbria, both in mainstream counselling/psychotherapy and also in a modality she has developed called Dynamic Healing – a deeply effective therapy in which she combines subtle energy healing with psychotherapeutic process.
Another of Delcia’s gifts/skills is verbal channelling, in which she works with a high level of consciousness in a therapeutic way with individuals and groups. She often combines this work with counselling, and runs workshops.
In recent years Delcia has developed her life-long love of drawing and painting. Her paintings are inspired by therapeutic, metaphysical and human themes, such as healing, communication, relationships and the unconscious mind. She also creates ‘Energy Portraits’, where she ‘tunes into’ a person’s (or family or pet) essence or soul, and creates an image. Her artwork regularly sells. Many therapists buy them to enhance their therapy space and some psychotherapists use them as objects for the psychotherapeutic process. All the artwork on this website is created by Delcia.

Delcia runs ‘Paint Your Art Out’ workshops in which she combines intuitive painting, meditation and healing.
Individual counselling, supervision or channelling sessions can be conducted by phone where appropriate.
