I first discovered holistic therapies in 2006 when a friend introduced me to Reiki. I had no intentions of becoming a therapist at that time but it wasn't long before I realised I'd discovered a new-found passion for the healing arts, and the holistic approach to health and wellbeing.
I trained in Reiki, Massage Therapy, Meridian Energy Therapies (EFT), Quantum Touch Energy Therapy and Meditation. As ever, the more we learn, we realise the less we know, and I enjoy studying to expand my knowledge, and attending workshops and awareness days in a range of therapeutic and energetic approaches whenever I'm drawn. I think being open-minded is a great gift. Once we think things are a certain way, and only that way, we stop learning. I aim to never stop learning!
In 2013, I was attending some business development training with marketing entrepreneur, Saz Bailey, and through that I was introduced to The Passion Test which is a system that helps people gain clarity on their life/business vision and how to align their lives with it. It had such a profound impact on my thought processes, and subsequently my life, that I travelled toChicago USA in June 2014 to train as a Facilitator. It is a system I still use myself and am able to share with others through workshops and also as a stress management and life coaching tool.
I have a deep interest in the root causes of physical symptoms, and have been studying a ground-breaking approach to improving and unravelling our health challenges via Meta Health Academy in Solihull, and more recently, Lifestyle Prescriptions University led by MetaHealth Founder Johannes R Fisslinger. As a result of my studies in this area, I have developed a much deeper trust in the body's natural healing intelligence, and that all symptoms are signals with meanings; when we understand them, they can help us self-heal and evolve on all levels. Would you agree that if you could understand WHY you have symptoms, it would often times remove the fear and powerlessness around ill health. This coaching aspect of my work will come more to the fore over the next 12-24 months .. so do watch this space!
In 2017, I went on to train in the Hydrotherm Massage System. For me, this is the ultimate relaxational massage, with the client laying back on warm water-filled cushions through the whole session with no need to roll over halfway. In 2018, I trained in the Tranquil Sea hydrotherm massage, which is a massage especially adapted to be and safe, supportive and nurturing for any person who has in the past, or is currently having, treatment for cancer. In the past, clients living with cancer have only been able to receive massage therapy with a signed referral from their GP, but with this endorsed training, I am now able to welcome clients and provide treatment without the need for a letter and am fully equipped and insured to do so. We all have loved ones whose lives have been touched by cancer in many ways, and know how important it is to feel "normal" when we are ill, to be able to choose where, when and what treatments we'd like to have. Being able to make a small difference to how they are feeling is a wonderful experience as a therapist, and the core of why we do what we do with such passion.
To enhance my cancer care provision, I also travelled down to Cornwall in 2018 to the Made for Life Foundation, where I undertook 3 days intensive training so I can also offer Cancer Touch Therapy, using wonderful 100% organic preparations. Cancer Touch is not a massage, but is a gentle and relaxing touch therapy suitable for anyone who wants to experience mind-body connect on a profoundly deep level. Not only is it perfect for anyone being treated for cancer, but for anyone with painful conditions or for whom massage might otherwise not be suitable.
Whilst my learning, growing and developing journey as a therapist continues, I am very much an outdoor person at heart. I love the countryside, nature, walking and honouring the beauty in all I see through photography. I love all animals, and have been a keen horse-owner/rider for many years.
