I remember being passionate about learning new things from an early age inspired by bible stories at Sunday School I became a very "sensitive" and caring child wanting to help others around me from around the age of 5.

I suffered quite a lot of health challenges throughout my life really struggling from the age of 10 with my first operative procedure things just got worse so I became despondent with some of the 'western' healthcare, misdiagnosis and side effect giving medications so I eventually embarked on my own healing journey.

I started to study holistic therapies in 2007 as part of an occupational career change after being made redundant from a high pressure corporate role where I supervised and taught EMTEC Modules and invigilated the exams of 22 Motor Mechanics.

The big changes started as I obtained my first Anatomy & Physiology Level 2 Diploma in 2008. I went on to gain my Gym Instructing / Personal Training, Anatomy & Physiology Level 3, Exercise to music, Advanced instructor, Nutrition and Massage qualifications and began working and gained vast experience in a private health club and several other gyms / studios as I started teaching over 30 fitness classes a week and then working early shifts as a Complaints Manager 39 hours a week.

My ego became very loud during my healing journey as I worked those 4 jobs, went to college and studied all night to afford my mortgage, utilities, training courses whilst as a single Mum also caring for, supporting my young Son with additional needs.

I wasn't conscious to it, the ego made me believe that I must always be doing, producing, learning, doing “work” that involves movement, I could not stop even going for runs at 5am even Christmas morning! This eventually broke me down to my lowest level ever in 2012 and a good job it did as this is where I started my next path and my journey of Self discovery with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness, Reiki Seichem Healing, Cranial Balancing Stress Release & Yoga.

Most of my learning was how to just BE. How to find stillness. How to return to the body even when the ego stalks me with “I should” “I need to” and all the other constant thoughts of distraction and how to release past trauma.

I haven’t stopped my professional development since despite my chronic autoimmune disease, chronic pain conditions, health challenges and to add to them an accident which an MRI diagnosed a chronic and permanent spinal injury in 2017.

I continue pacing researching pain management, upskilling, journaling blogging, article writing, meditating and studying on a basis that suits me now to so I can manage my continued professional development, work helping others and managing my own self care and healing.

I now finally happy in my life, having found balance and pride myself on helping others, not dwelling on past events and traumas, just living in the moment, just allowing myself to be, working with my qualifications and experience, adapting and combining therapies, so each treatment is tailored to the specific and individual needs of my clients no matter what their symptoms and ailments may be, my expectation is that I can help!.
