About Me

I presently live in Bath with my Partner, step-daughter and our new puppy, Lyra! It’s a beautiful city, where I am lucky enough to have the space to run a clinic from my home.

I came back to live in the UK in 2006. I had left home in my mid teens, and had shortly gone travelling through South East Asia for the best part of 13 years.

As you can imagine, there was much to see and explore, especially through the eyes of a young women! There was plenty of partying and travelling done, but what became especially dear to my heart was the practice of yoga and yogic philosophy. I lived closely within a tantric yoga community for about four years. Meditation is a big part of yogic life, and just before returning to the UK, I discovered the heart and compassion of the Tibetan Buddhist teachings. In fact, I fell in love with their culture as well, and proceeded to spend the next year on meditation and study retreats learning more about their practices. It was during one of these retreats that I had a strong sense that it was time to return to the UK and reconnect with my family.

I trained as a Craniosacral Therapist with Franklyn Sills at Karuna on my return, and here I started blending my experiences and training from Eastern and Western philosophies into a single language, a practice that recognises the deeply integrated nature of mind and body.

In 2013 I ruptured a ligament in my knee playing netball! This pushed me to deepen my understanding of advanced anatomy and physiology, so I spent the next year studying remedial sports massage at BCMB. I was excited to see how far science had come in understanding healing with mind and emotions.

Continuing to embrace the interface of modern science and ancient wisdom, I embarked on the training that Peter Levine (a leading light in trauma research) has offered. He sought to understand our biological response to trauma and in 1997 developed a technique called Somatic Experiencing. His work, and the the work of many other great minds, has meant the world of understanding trauma, and how it effects our nervous system has become more widely known as an effective and deeply creative and transformation system.

Alongside my work as practitioner, I was a tutor on the two year Resonance training course for Craniosacral Therapists and am a fully accredited supervisor with the craniosacral therapy association.

I support the Somatic Experiencing team as an assistant on their intro training, and in May this year embark on adding Internal Family Systems to my practice. 

I’ve been involved in group work for more than 15 years and am currently in the process of co-creating a workshop focusing on the foundational nuances of coming into a more refined relationship with ourselves, others and the world around us.

I believe you may gather from reading my biography, that the theme running through my practice is my conviction and experience that both intricacies of mind and body must be engaged in the process of healing, whether in relation to physical injury or mental trauma. My training in various techniques means I can blend them together to match the needs of my clients on their personal journey to health.
