I’m a Brighton based (East Sussex, UK) holistic therapist. I am interested in promoting self-care for health and wellbeing.
Fascinated by the world of natural therapies I felt compelled to immerse myself in them when I became a mother. My oldest child was very ill and it was only the natural approach to health that helped her become healthy again.
Drawing on an extensive and varied professional life as a language teacher and translator, I studied energy work as I accompanied my daughter on her journey to health. This passion continued as I realized I could better my own life and those of others. I started practicing Qigong in 2003 and then trained as a holistic therapist in 2009, when I came across Jin Shin Jyutsu. My on-going studies in these and other complementary therapies like natural nutrition and reflexology have helped me enrich my private and professional life enormously.
To learn about life force (Qi) and consciousness, I study and teach Yuan Gong (Qigong: cultivation of Qi) and Jin Shin Jyutsu (The art of the creator in compassionate hands). Both these Daoist practices were designed to help people help themselves. It’s only by going back to the source that ultimately we can learn and grow.
I love helping people by sharing what I’ve learnt: we can get into the right state of being and enjoy health, happiness and growth by learning about ourselves and incorporating some simple techniques into our everyday lives.
Here’s a video I made for Pecha Kucha talking about the beginning of my journey as a therapist:
