About Me

I presently live in Bath with my Partner, step-daughter and our American bulldog Charlie! I came back to live in the UK in 2006 after leaving in my early twenties to go travelling around South East Asia. As you can imagine, during my years abroad I encountered and explored many interesting things, but what became especially dear to my heart was the practice of yoga and yogic philosophy. Over these years I also trained in various bodywork modalities such as Shiatsu, Reiki and Thai Massage.

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 explaining and connecting tissue 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 have recently joined the Somatic Experiencing team as an assistant on their training.

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 will 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.
