Emi and me May 2019.jpg


Elizabeth's initial training was inspired by her own health issues and a fear of feet! She qualified after studying a two-year diploma in complementary therapies and then went on to study clinical massage.  She is driven by her knowledge and passion to help you live a healthier and happier life and is a self-proclaimed nerd who loves learning.  She takes into account mind, body and spirit (holistic biopsychosocial model) and also likes to combine her intuition into tailor-made treatments for general as well as specialist populations such as seniors and pregnant mothers.

Experience to date:
  • Read 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.

  • Worked as a personal assistant and book editor, both of which led me to a better understanding of office-based environments and their often detrimental effect on general health. 

  • motherhood started my journey into learning even more about nutrition plus natural/attachment/gentle parenting with a beautiful homebirth.  I breastfed my daughter through infancy and into early childhood. Parenting has been my best job ever.  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 instincts.  

  • retrained in my thirties and understands how to juggle studying and career changes with family life

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


Fun stuff:

  • My childhood summers were spent visiting my grandparents in Austria, a culture  with a focus on naturopathic health spas and organic food.  We stayed on alpine farms, heard cow bells, fed baby swallows that had fallen out of nests, climbed trees for apricots, picked fresh walnuts and drank homemade raspberry juice (himbeersaft). 

  • My favourite menu is soup followed by marillenknodeln (apricot dumplings).  I have a passion for creating nourishing but simple home-cooked food including raw chocolates and soup.  I also love hummous and halva.

  • I value nature and animals - being amongst trees and observing wildlife is my happy place and I love to share this with my clients.   Family members include a dog and a hamster.  We used to have guineapigs, a praying mantis and bantam hens.  

  • I home educated my daughter until she was 9 years old (using pedagogical approaches such as Steiner Waldorf and Montessori) which gave me deeper insights into raising a child through holistic philosophies.  My daughter is now following her own dreams in animal sciences.

  • I have been published as a book reviewer (New Vision, White Dragon) and have ghostwritten over a dozen books (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 trained in Austria.  She was the go to person if any of the neighbourhood children had a cut or scrape and always ready with antiseptic and plasters.  She knows a lot about naturopathic approaches as the Austrian healthcare system is more holistic; that had a great influence on me.

  • I love walking,  gentle yoga, watching wildlife, gardening with herbs and foraging in hedgerows.  

  • I am a fan of fantasy and science fiction including Star Trek, Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings (Counsellor Troi and Dr Crusher were some of my earliest heroes) and love Dungeons & Dragons.

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

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

  • I love drums and can play a full drumkit.  I love working with unconventional and creative people and have been out on the road photographing and filming bands.
