An adventurous spirit led me to travel from a young age and experience many different cultures. Always the spiritual seeker my experiences overseas instilled in me the need to follow a vocation with purpose and in 1999 I qualified in Aromatherapy and Therapeutic Massage. This was closely followed by Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, Thermo-Auricular Therapy and Reiki.
Reiki opened up a world of love, compassion, insight and understanding that I could never have anticipated. The start of my Reiki Journey coincided with a terminal diagnosis of cancer for my father, Thomas, and Reiki allowed me to experience this with wisdom and acceptance. I feel blessed and privileged to have been able to share Reiki with him at such an important time in his soul's journey.
I have been teaching Reiki since 2003. Some years ago I read about the work that Michael Arthur Baird was doing with Reiki Drumming™ in the USA. Reiki guided me to travel to Sedona in the Arizona Desert to study with Michael and has inspired me to introduce The Reiki Drum Technique Workshops here in the UK.
A passion for Yoga opened up my energy allowing me to grasp my connection with the Universe. A member of the Dharma Centre for Yoga. I studied under the expert guidance of Sivadyuti for ten years as well as being privileged to attend many of the workshops by Swami Dharmanda Saraswati Maharaj. My first Reiki teachers were David Godfrey and Sharon Watson and I have trained with some of the leading teachers in the field of Reiki including Tadao Yamaguchi, Frans Stiene, Penelope Quest and Frank Arjava Petter, continually improving and updating my knowledge and experience.
I have a busy clinic in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire and treat many different clients, having particular experience with cancer patients, maternity clients, infertility and digestive problems, autoimmune disease, allergies, stress related illnesses, back and joint pain.
Through my own health journey I discovered the benefits of naturopathic medicine and have personally experimented with many detoxification techniques, fasting, raw vegan diet, herbs, homeopathy and numerous bodywork and energy therapies. I consequently adopt a naturopathic and holistic approach with my clients. I aim to be open, sensitive, positive and supportive with all my clients and students. Besides my passion for Yoga, I have an interest in Tai Chi, Eastern Healing Arts and Energy Systems, Buddhist philosophy and Shamanism. I am a qualified sound healer, specialising in drums, voice and the gong and have attended trainings with some of the leaders in the field of sound healing.
I hold regular Reiki classes for all levels in Hertfordshire as well as the Reiki Drum Practitioner workshops. I hold Reiki Shares throughout the year for my students. I run both Reiki and Sound & Light Retreats throughout the UK. I am a fully insured member of the The Reiki Federation, the Complementary Therapists Association and the College of Sound Healing. I am available for talks and mini workshops, and will travel to any location for a minimum number of six students. Please enquire further should you be interested.
