For the past 25 years I have worked in adult social care in various roles. I graduated from Oxford Brookes University in 2009 as an Occupational Therapist and have worked in local authority and private/independent settings since this time. I decided to focus solely on bodywork from November 2019.
Yoga has been a mainstay since my early twenties and I regularly participate in classes and retreats. I love to spend time in nature as this helps me to re-connect and ground with the earth. I believe we are all here to discover and create who we are, and our place in the world. That this is a on-going journey of exploration, risk taking, self care and transformation.
In 2012 I graduated from the accredited Shiatsu College, London, after a three year training course in Zen Shiatsu. For 2 years I helped teach assist at the London College and since this time have offered Shiatsu as a means of personal growth for others as well as myself in both the charitable sector and in private practice.
One of my teachers often described Shiatsu as feeling "like liquid silver" and this has always resonated with me. In that magical space between waking and sleeping, where the body, mind and spirit are grounded, relaxed and open, where there is kind curiosity, we can more easily access and effect all parts of our being to bring about wholeness and healing. I think Shiatsu is an amazing gift!
I have a deep interest in the innate wisdom of the body and helping people to consciously connect to aspects of themselves through their own lived experience. Gently investigating their own condition to shine light on areas of the body, psyche, mind and spirit to bring them back into harmony with the greater whole. Shiatsu can help a person to take control of their own health and quality of life, and to be an active participant in their own healing. I regularly attend post graduate workshops, courses and retreats to further my development, as well as regular practices in Qi Gong and conscious dance.
