I have always healed, taught and written though I didn’t know I would be so fortunate as to do this for a living.
For the first part of my life I was a journalist and worked in communications for a number of different organisations including the Red Cross in the UK and overseas. To raise awareness of Red Cross programmes I travelled to places like Chernobyl, Bosnia, Ethiopia and China. I was privileged to have worked on the campaign to ban landmines, a campaign that culminated in the involvement of Princess Diana and led to the International Mine Ban Treaty signed by 162 countries.
In 1998 I moved to India and became fascinated by Ayurvedic medicine. It was then my journey into the world of healing became more serious.
I learnt yoga, Reiki and became more skilled in massage.
In 2013 after attending a workshop by renowned American energy healer Donna Eden I embarked on the Eden Energy Medicine certification programme. After three years of study I am now a qualified Eden Energy Medicine Clinical Practitioner with the ability to test the body’s energies for blockages and imbalances. I work in a holistic way to address these so as to help the body’s ability to heal itself.
I regularly teach Eden Energy Medicine workshops, how to do Tapping (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and Reiki having qualified as a Reiki Master in 2015.
In 2015 and 2016 I was a volunteer massage therapist at the Glastonbury Festival working in the Disability Field. I have also worked as a massage therapist for global organic products retailer Neal’s Yard Remedies.
My vision is to make healing accessible to as many people as possible.
This year I was a finalist in the Centre of Excellence’s 2017 Awards for Holistic Therapist. It’s nice to be recognised for the work that we do and at the same time I love what I do so much that my days are filled with joy regardless.
I studied naturopathic nutrition with the Centre and this has changed the lives of myself, my friends, family and my clients in deep ways.
