My life has been one of adventure, travelling to many countries, and living abroad. Having a hands on approach to everything, I started out doing my own mechanics on big old trucks, and playing music on the streets. I love nature and have been blessed to live in some beautiful places.
I could just share with you my journey as a therapist, which started in 2003 in Spain, (I have listed my certifications at the bottom of this page) and may seem more of a proffessional approach to this resume. But the truth is that without all the difficulties that preceded that, and the extensive time since, unravelling it all and reclaiming a whole life, my role as a healer, and what I have the ability to hold for others due to my own wounding, would not make sense.
The work I do now began as a deep calling that emerged powerfully out of the depths of a healing crisis with Lymes disease, in 2001. Ill health led me initially to study creative kinesiology, receive craniosacral therapy, share experiences with other healers, and navigate a spontaneous and deep awakening of my intuition and inate gifts as a spiritual healer. It was like a light went on, (after my brain got cooked at 104 degrees for a few days!), and forced to stop living life like I had rocket fuel running my batteries, literally, I was the unstoppable supermum, who then, with the wind taken out of her sails, by a tiny tick, had to learn to sit down, and contemplate, well, there was so much backlog of unacknowledge trauma that my unconscious mind took over, there and then, and has been the one with the rocket fuel I guess, from that point onwards!.
I had left home at 16, joined the hippy convoy, and travelled around the uk. Then as a single mum at 20 years old, pregnancy having woken me up from what had spiralled into a very self destructive lifestyle, I went over to Europe in my truck, in search of likeminded folk who wanted freedom without all the not so desirable drug infestion that had become prevalent in the new age traveller communities in England.
I spent 5 years in France, where my daughter was born, and was blessed with incredible journeys to Mexico and Morocco hanging out in the pyramids and deserts and mountains, for several months at a time with my children and daughter's father. We earned a living running a bouncy castle in the local village fairs, in the summer months, and I played music on the street and painted decorations on the shop windows at Easter and Christmas.
In 1995 I was involved in a serious car accident, and suffered a broken neck at C2, which needed a complex surgery. I was lucky to be alive, and even luckier not to be paralysed. I had no therapeutic support for my recouperation after the accident, and the shock and freeze went deeply underground in my system.
A couple of years later I moved to live in the mountains in Spain, near Granada, where I raised my two children as a single mother, having reached the point of no return in my relationship. Years of inbalance between living in beautiful places, and sharing good times, and the shadow of domestic violence was no longer an option. Amazingly now, after a lot of soul searching, also prompted by a 6 year journey to heal my womb, which meant a deep long look into the history of my relationships, my daughters father is a very great friend and ally :)
Now living on my own with the kids, I spent 7 years building a beautiful home, which sounds romantic, and the reality was a lot of heavy work, and great times too :) I worked as an artist, and a musician in an Irish band. I was an unstoppable force of creativity, but like many workaholics, I found it almost impossible to relax. I led a positive and playful life on the surface, and a driven, controlling one underneath.
My second health warning came in 2002, when life dealt me a tough calling card with Lymes disease, which although at first through necessity, completely changed my direction in life, became a real gift in disguise. My search for healing propelled me into an intense spiritual awakening, and discovery of my own gifts and path as a healer. My neck was becoming increasingly vunerable and the combined effects of these two major set backs in my health sent me on a very intense mission to understand everything I could about the body and how our energy works. I began to receive a lot of information, and have the ability to sense and read energy. After an intense 3 years practicing a lot of kundalini yoga, eating mainly raw food, living a deeply mystic, disciplined sufi practice of daily prayer, and meditation, I was coming to understand how to navigate the healing skills that were evolving through me, supporting others. At this point I had learned to respect my body's need for balance between rest and play/work, and I was granted release from the Lymes disease in a shamanic healing session, I saw and felt millions of ticks and eggs leave my body out of the top of my head. It was an experience that greatly deepened my calling to healing. Since then, I have met several people who have had Lymes disease, and they were all workaholics before they got it!
It was during this period that I began to get flashbacks relating to deep trauma I had hidden from myself in chidhood. Physical and also spiritual trauma, that has now awakened a gift in me of a powerful ability for healing. I have been, and continue, on a long journey of healing and awakening, which gives me a great deal of experience to hold and have deep empathy for others.
I moved to England in 2007 and studied Craniosacral Therapy at the Karuna Institute in Devon, which really supported my journey to rebuild my nervous system from the car accident and help many others with similar injuries along the way. A lot of clients also became drawn to work with me for support with their spiritual awakening process. A few years later, I continued onto Advanced Pediatric Craniosacral Therapy studying with Matthew Appleton, which is where my interest in life in the womb became very deep. My own process during this period supported a deep unfolding of my own unconscious story in the womb, the trauma of losing two brothers in the first 3 months, undetected by my mother or her doctor, and how that deeply informed and contributed to my issues of abandonment and rejection. Integrating these sacred wounds and their ripple effects, has inspired me immensely to work with babies, mums, and dads during pregnancy, and also with anyone wishing to concieve.
In 2013 I qualified as a doula and have had the great privilege of attending births here in Bristol offering a combined approach, for deep preparation during pregnancy, for mums and dads to be, with home visits, and in craniosacral sessions. Although I am choosing currently not to attend births, and to focus my role of support within my therapy practice at my own home, healing the pathway to birth and parenting. I very much identify with the role of soul midwife, assisting new babies and their families in the journey of arriving here on earth.
In 2014 I began attending local meditations with the overlighting presence of Arch Angel Metatron. I had an instant recognition of the energy, as one that has been guiding and supporting me for many years. In ongoing participation in courses, I have received many attunements that have refined my system in order to be able to support a greater awareness and wholeness in my life and healing work. These energies also enhance my ability to help clients to lift the weight and complex repercussions of stories they have been carrying in life, physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally.
This was also the year I completed my training as an Alpha Chi consultant. This has been a very deep soul journey, and gift of remembrance, helping me to connect with my own essential energy. The training included, working with the spiritual realms, understanding more deeply the functions of our chakra system, working with plant energies, clearing and enhancing energy in the home and outdoors, facilitating spirit release, living in alignment with the divine natural law.
If you feel your home could benefit from the clearing of negative energies, and receive a specialised attuning to higher frequencies, in alignment with your life path, feel free to ask for more information.
Recently, I was very blessed to attend 4 days of beautiful ceremony, receiving the Munay Ki , the 9 rites of initiation of the medicine way, of the Incas, and have been greatly moved by the difference this has made in my work as well as personal life. I also participate in ongoing group awakening work with an awakening teacher, for several years now, as part of my own development and constantly evolving healing work.
My work is very inclusive, as the various different healing methods and my own intuitive guidance combine to provide a wide landscape, gently anchored by the deep listening, knowledge of anatomy, and energetic dynamic dialogue with my clients system, I am able to hold space for healing on many levels. Ancestral, past life, current or earlier traumas, relationships, spiritual awakening, physical issues, soul retrieval, the list goes on, if someone is ready and willing to grow and release what no longer serves them, I can help. I simply follow the energy.
I am passionate about supporting my clients to find their own inner resources and gifts, and become the witness to the enormous intelligence of their body and soul, guiding them through whatever life challenges they are dealing with, to a deeper understanding and experience of their own health and life purpose.
