I have been aware of my sensitvity and intuitive abilities from a very early age. By my twenties I realised I had a strong desire to help people in a healing way. It was at this time I was drawn to develop a regular meditation practice and began what has been, and still is, a lifelong process of learning and investigation.
My work background has been for the NHS in psychiatric and cancer care - giving me a great understanding of the stress and strain that mental health issues and physical disease can cause. I have trained and qualified to diploma level in Aromatherapy, Massage and Reflexology (including anatomy and physiology) and have also done further advanced training in specialised areas of Reflexology including Maternity Reflexology, VRT and Hot Stone Reflexology.
I am a qualified Reiki Master in Angelic, Usui Reiki and Karuna Reiki® and offer healing and atunements in these. I also hold a Diploma in Flower Essence Therapy (MCS). Over the years I have studied many esoteric disciplines. With regard to Astrology, I have studied Evolutionary Astrology (Astrology University) and with Pam Carruthers, a Sussex based Astrologer. I teach a number of esoteric subjects including the tarot.
I am passionate about the efficacy of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) having had marvellous results in my own life and witnessed it in others. I trained under Val and EFT Master Paul Lynch of the Heart Centre, authors of "Emotional Healing in Minutes." (They appeared on the Richard & Judy show, curing people of their phobias using EFT.) I now also practise Matrix Reimprinting having trained with its creator, EFT Master Karl Dawson.
I hold a Person Centred Counselling Skills Certificate (NOCN).
I have 3 children and live with them, my partner and pets in Lewes. Having children is probably the biggest and best learning curve that I have experienced and I feel that this helps me to understand issues that can arise through parenting. My goal and focus in life is to empower people to help themselves. It is a widely held premise that 70% of disease is stress related and I believe it is therefore vital that we care for this aspect of ourselves - 'when the body/mind is in a deep state of relaxation, true healing has the opportunity to take place.
