I've always been intrigued by the body and took physics, chemistry and biology up to 'O' level at Kidderminster High Schools for Girls. I desperately wanted to be a vet, but back in the 1980's that wasn't the type of job "girls" were encouraged to pursue ... so my dream was stolen from me by the school career advisor, who suggested a more sensible career in retail management.
They knew better ... we did as we were told!
I was successful but never satisfied, always feeling that there must be more to life than this.
At the age of 30 my marriage broke down and so did I, causing me to turn to complementary therapies for assistance. I was lucky enough to find several incredible therapists, rekindling my interest in the human body.
And so my new journey started, one that I would not have missed for anything. It's not always been easy but it has been fulfilling every step of the way.
I have helped hundreds of clients through my gift of massage, regularly teach Zen Yoga in my local community, offer my sport therapy knowledge to our home rugby team, continued to take on new challenges, loving life to the fullest.
"It's really not about one thing or another, it's about everything ... the whole nine-yards. I care! I care enough to want to enhance the well-being of everyone so they can truly live the life they were born to live. That's my mission, my life- purpose."
My International accredited qualifications include, among others:
- Yoga Teacher (200RYT)
- Life Coach
- Thai Yoga Massage Practitioner
- Remedial/Sports Masseuse
- Natural Cosmetologist
- Quantum Touch Healer
I have studied, over a number of years, with some of the greatest pioneers in their relevent fields ... Christine Sapford (aromatherapy) in the UK; Ganga White (yoga) USA; Phoebe Difler (Thai Yoga Massage) USA; Zen Master, Daizan Roshi (yoga & mindfulness); Natalie Ledwell, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Nick Ortner (EFT) and am currently studying to be a clinical hypnotherapist with Dr. Steve G Jones.
My vision is to provide a safe and happy place where anyone can visit to escape from their routine, participate in a life-changing program and leave feeling refreshed, energised and ready to lead a healthier and happier life.
