A brief summary:

I am passionate about supporting others to heal and expand into their full potential, and teaching tools for self-empowerment!

Meditation, yoga, exercise, healthy eating and personal growth are all a part of my daily life.

My own healing journey:

I became interested in natural forms of healing in my early twenties after experiencing chronic fatigue, digestive issues and depression since my teens, with which modern medicine was unable to help. After ending up in hospital with severe abdominal pain and bleeding, I realised it was time to make some big life changes!

Understanding that I must be, somehow, be able to heal and re-balance myself, I began to explore alternative healing methods. I began to take some evening classes in Shiatsu: the incredible benefits of body and energy work combined soon led to me signing up for the three year practitioner course!

Later I discovered and began training in Cranio-Sacral Therapy, which fascinated and helped me hugely with its ability to tap into the subtle layers of my experience (physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically) and heal these different aspects.

I began to understand more deeply the link between body, mind, emotions and energy, and the fact that I had more control over my body and mind than I had realised. I realised that my physical health issues were mainly a crystallisation of my thoughts, feelings, behaviours and choices up to this point – and adjusting these things provided the key to my healing on all levels.

I also learned more about nutrition and gradually modified my diet so as to better support my health. After taking a short course in meditation and mindfulness, I began to meditate daily.

From 2003, I started work as a therapist in London, in both private practice and for organisations such as BBC and Morgan Stanley.

In 2005, I organised a five month trip to Asia: in the second week of my trip, I had an accident in Thailand (involving an elephant and a tree!), which unexpectedly changed the whole course of my life!

Unable to travel with my injured leg, I stumbled upon a wonderful yoga centre and community in Nong Khai, North East Thailand and began to study yoga intensively with two incredible teachers. Their teachings had so much impact on me that I ended up relocating to Nong Khai and spending the next three years there – dedicating a large part of my time to the practise of yoga and meditation.

Not only did I heal my leg completely, I was also able to go much deeper with my own mental/emotional healing, and gain an even deeper understanding of the intimate connection between the body, mind, emotions and energy flow – and how all need to be balanced for optimal health.

I now spend half of the year in Nong Khai and the other half in England.

What I offer:

-Personalised body work/energy work treatments and intuitive guidance – that addresses your individual needs. My style of working is gentle, sensitive and intuitive.

-A supportive and compassionate space for discussion and self-reflection before or after your treatment – to help you understand and tackle the root causes of your symptoms. (85 minute session needed for this.)

-Guidance regarding additional home practices – to help support your healing process and overall well-being (if desired).

-Reiki Level 1 and 2 courses for small groups (in UK).

-Chakradance and Flow Motion therapeutic dance classes.

I work with people:

-who would like to improve their physical/mental/emotional wellbeing, relax and destress.

-suffering from symptoms such as headaches, neck/back pain, digestive/menstrual issues, chronic fatigue, ENT (ear-nose-throat) or jaw issues.

-who have suffered an injury, accident or whiplash who would like to speed up their healing process.

-who are ready to release, understand and make peace with old emotional wounds and traumas.

-Mothers and/or babies who are suffering from physical, mental or emotional issues post-birth.

Everyone is welcome!
