a bit more about us

Dr Sandra Walker

PhD, PgDip, PCAP, Bsc (Hons), RMN, Dip Mus, Dip NLP, IMF


Hi, I’m Sandy and I’m an Integrative therapist using predominantly EMDR and Horse Assisted modalities. I’m a specialist in creative and community approaches to mental distress. I work as a researcher, trainer, and PhD supervisor at Portsmouth university. I have more than 30 years’ experience as a mental health nurse, from Staff Nurse to Modern Matron, and have used the Arts, predominantly music, in practice regularly throughout that time. I have a PhD exploring the experience people who self-harm have of contact with mental health services within a general hospital environment. I deliver training, workshops, retreats, and healthcare via my own brand of love-based healthcare. In the 1990s I was diagnosed with Postnatal Depression and Borderline Personality Disorder and spent time as a patient of mental health care.  I refuted the second diagnosis however this experience helped me shape my practice and training to this day. I am an award-winning educator with a reputation for thought provoking and sometimes status quo challenging content.  I would like to think that by the time I leave this planet I will have contributed a little bit to making it a better place.

Alison Keizer

Hello. My name's Alison

I'm passionate about dementia care, not just for the person living with dementia. Also for their family, friends Who care for their loved ones in such a compassionate, dedicated and selfless way. For me It is important for not only the person living with dementia to live well, but also for their loved ones to live well.

Caring for people living with dementia is one of the most fulfilling and important jobs there is. It's really important the staff get the right support and training required to work in this Important and I’m at times highly stressful industry.

As a former Admiral nurse, I believe strongly that we should provide the support as and when required for loved ones and carers of people living with dementia It is also important for families, loved ones, friends of people living with dementia to feel empowered and confident when caring for their loved ones.

 With 20 years’ experience of working in the NHS, predominantly in older people services. I bring the knowledge and skills with compassion and care That all people with dementia are and should provided with the best possible care and support they require and more importantly, deserve.
