“I will do all I can to help you – please do all you can to help yourself”
My mother was a District Nurse and Midwife and so I am no stranger to the medical profession. I began seriously investigating complementary therapies and dietary habits after falling to serious illness. Following an endless round of hospital visits and tests I decided to explore a different route. I studied nutrition and became aware of many other marvellous healing practices. Cutting a very long story short, by changing my personal outlook, diet and spiritual understanding, I managed to heal myself without the use of medication, embarking on a path which has now taken a full circle.
I trained with the Tisserand Institute as a Holistic Aromatherapist and Reflexologist – instructed by Robert Tisserand in the art of blending essential oils and by Dr Christine Page in Anatomy and Physiology. I use only organic oils in my aromatherapy prescription, and advanced massage techniques. Reflexology is an incredible treatment and over the years I have incorporated many techniques in my treatments.
I have studied Bach Flowers for over twenty years and teach a three day intensive course here at The Sanctuary. All of our Bach Flower Remedies come from Healing Herbs and I’ve enjoyed many courses and meetings in Hereford with Julian Barnard and his team.
I adore working with Hawaiian Basalt and beautiful marble stones, combining the two into a delicious Pohaku Wela Lomi hot and cold stone massage.
I achieved full healership with the National Federation of Spiritual Healers and have gained enormous experience over the years, working as a Healer Support Facilitator for a long period of time.
I have also studied Kinesiology, Body Harmony and work frequently with Thermal Auricular Therapy (ear candling) – the benefits are amazing.
I have recently incorporated Natural Lift Facial Massage into my practice with magnificent results.
