About. headshot10 (old)

As an 18 year old trainee nurse I had the good fortune to meet a very unusual consultant medical doctor. He believed in what he called 'psychosomatic causes of illness'. The idea that certain personality characteristics and emotional states could give rise to physical ill health was rarely talked about in the late 1970's NHS. His radical ideas resonated with me and began my quest to learn about alternative approaches to health and well-being. I wanted to discover whether there is, in fact, an emotional energy 'body' that plays a part in our physical health.

It has been an incredible journey which continues to this day. I have had the privilege of learning from some inspirational teachers such as:

Caroline Myss (Sacred Contracts etc)
Jill Purce (The Healing Voice),
Sheila Whittaker (Healing Sound)
Felicity Warner (Soul Midwifery)

Along the way I have trained in the following:
Reflexology ITEC diplomas
Bach Flower Practitioner Level
Reiki I, II, Master and Master Teacher
BSc in Oriental Medicine (Acupuncture)
Swedish Massage Therapy
Gong Sound Practitioner
Soul Midwife

I am a facilitator for anyone who is hoping to change something in their lives. Or maybe those who are experiencing change and would like support through the process. This might include:
Chronic illness
Major life event such as bereavement, divorce or acute illness
Transitional times of life, for example, parenthood, menopause, children leaving home
Anxiety conditions
Understanding deeper issues such as family patterns etc
Seekers of a more spiritual connection to their lives

I offer a confidential, safe environment and I am particularly skilled and experienced in supporting and empowering emotional health.
I am fully insured and a member of The Federation of Holistic Therapists

On a personal note - 2018 was a year of change and transition for me as I moved back to Essex after 30 years living in different countries.I have two adult sons and am discovering the joys of grand-motherhood.
I live with my elder statesman labrador Finn in a former fishing town and my passion is for the natural world. I learn much from Mother Nature and her seasons, flora and fauna.

These changing times can often seem chaotic and many of people fear for the future. In my non-judgemental, welcoming home it is my privilege to support others through shifts in consciousness and upgrades in awareness.

Please contact me if I can help you.
