Welcome to my Website
I suppose there are several things that underlie my approach to my life. One of these is a deep appreciation for the Earth and all of its inhabitants and a life-long interest in how we can better live in harmony with it, as well as with others. Another, is an interest in exploring all facets of Psychology especially human growth and development. My interest in the Earth and our relationship with it, as well as my interest in healing and health have also led to an exploration of complementary medicine and health care. Through all these interests I have developed a deep appreciation for personal responsibility and the healing abilities of both the body and the mind.
My interests are manifested in many different ways. I have chosen a career in Psychology and founded a private practice Psychology clinic in 2006. It has had several names including “Jasmine Place”, “Dr Pamela Seaton & Associates” and now, “Regional and Rural Mental Health Services”. Although I have broad experience in Psychology, my special interest in this area is working with children and adults on the Autistic Spectrum, which was first sparked while working with Professor Tony Attwood early in my career. I find working with ‘Aspies’ fun, interesting and rewarding.
As I have always believed that where possible, prevention is a better course of action than cure, I have also been interested in complimentary medicine and health care. Earlier in my life I trained as, what was then known as a “Natural Therapist”, particularly in the use of herbs and body work. However, I have not worked professionally in this area for many years.
My love of our planet and interest in healthy living also manifests in a life-long interest in gardening, particularly organics and permaculture, as well as raising animals in ways that enable them to experience and express their species’ specific nature. I currently am the steward of 165 acres on which I garden to provide as much of my own food as possible. I also share the property with chickens (White, as well as Buff Sussex), horses (Welsh Cobs and Friesians) and cows (Minature Belted Galloways).
