If it has to do with stress, sleep and pain management I can help.  There are real benefits in changing your lifestyle and eating habits.  Doing so can enable you to feel the best you can. Massage therapy, reflexology and health coaching can all support you. 

 

​Thanks to the therapists and coaches who helped me deal with my own health issues I was inspired to start my own practice in 2010. Before moving back to Cheshire, England I was located near the West Sussex coast and worked from several venues there including at the Hamblin Trust and Oldwick Therapy Centre plus my little cottage.  As of August 2020 I am working at Core Wellbeing in Mobberley, Cheshire.

I am driven by my passion to help you so that you can achieve your own dreams and live a healthier life.  I work with a holistic model, that takes into account the biopsychosocial factors for health that includes biology, psychology and the social context too.

 

My own experiences with my own health enable me to serve my clients better. I have investigated complementary approaches such as plant therapies, nutrition and movement. My clients receive cutting-edge clinical therapies, relaxation techniques, an emphasis on whole foods nourishment and creating time for healthy habits that improve your personal wellbeing.    

Experience to date includes:

  • motherhood which started in 2001 with a beautiful homebirth.  This was my journey into learning even more about nutrition, natural/attachment/gentle parenting as we co-slept and I breastfed my daughter for 6 years, through infancy, toddlerhood and into early childhood.

  • home educating until my daughter was 9 years old (using pedagogical approaches such as Steiner Waldorf and Montessori) which has given me some deeper insights into raising a child and living in a holistic and healthier way.  Parenting has been my best job ever that was miraculous and gave me so much.  It has given me an understanding of the impact that juggling family and work has in relation to self care, our sense of identity, the raw emotions we feel and the difficulties that we experience living in the modern world at odds with our heart centres.

  • reading the first year of a Speech and Language Therapy/Psychology degree, taking modules in anatomy, physiology, developmental psychology and linguistics and working as a speech and language therapy assistant in mainstream and SEN settings.

  • working as a personal assistant and book editor, both of which led me to a better understanding of working environments and their effect on general health. I've worked for a major global bank, big media corporations, developers, law firms, council departments and a medical training company.

  • retraining in my thirties as a complementary therapist and understanding the roles that massage therapy, aromatherapy, reflexology and nutrition have to manage pain and stress as well as how to juggle career changes with family life

  • my teacher training in Lifelong Education (City & Guilds PTTLLS) and teaching at holistic workshops

  • experiencing my own journey with ME, PMS, tempero-mandibular joint syndrome, anaemia, morning sickness, IBS and learning how to manage these challenging conditions using whole foods and holistic health awareness of herbs, nutrition and bodywork.

 

About Me (fun stuff!):

  • I am Anglo-Austrian.  My childhood summers were spent in Austria, visiting my grandparents, a culture different to the rest of my year in England for lifestyle and diet.  I have lovely memories of visiting naturopathic health spas, staying on alpine farms, hearing the cow bells, feeding baby swallows that had fallen out of nests, climbing trees for apricots, picking fresh walnuts and drinking fresh-made raspberry juice.

  • I value nature - being out amongst trees and observing wildlife is my happy place.       

  • I am a mother to a teenager who is now following her dreams.

  • I have been published as a book reviewer (New Vision, White Dragon) and have ghostwritten over a dozen books (that I can't tell you more about as I signed a contract not to other than they were in the alternative health field and included astrology and music).  I have had several articles featured at Body Mind Institute and also written health-based e-books.

  • My mum was a paediatric nurse.  She was always the go to person on our road if any of the neighbourhood children had a cut or scrape and always ready with antiseptic and plasters.  As she is Austrian she knows a lot about naturopathic approaches too as the Austrian healthcare system where she originally trained is more holistic; that had a great influence on me.

  • My family members include a dog and one bantam hen.

  • I love walking (especially with my doglet), Tai Chi, gentle yoga, watching wildlife, gardening with herbs and foraging in hedgerows.  

  • I am a fan of fantasy and science fiction including Star Trek (Counsellor Troi and Dr Crusher were some of my earliest heroes) and Dungeons and Dragons

  • I am an INFJ in terms of Myers-Briggs personality type. My Gallup Strengths Finder top 5 include Learner and Developer.

  • I have a passion for creating nourishing but simple home-cooked food including raw chocolates and soup.

  • I believe that a healthy rhythm in life is essential - work hard yes, and play well too.  

  • I can play a full drumkit and have been out on the road photographing and filming bands.
