My holistic journey began at the age of 19 and in 1995 I made a full time commitment and joined an intentional community (The Salisbury Centre in Edinburgh).
I lived, worked and studied the healing arts and various forms of spiritual practice before training in Zen Shiatsu (MRSS), Reflexology, various forms of Massage and becoming self employed full time in 2000.
Whilst living in the microcosmic cauldron of transformation, I realised that that “down and in” through enquiry, the body and senses was my path, oracle and destination.
I bring my eclectic studies into my practice, which include: the modalities I have professionally trained in as well as a commitment to Tantra, Taoist arts, Dreamwork, Qi Gong and began Yoga teacher training in 2015 in India with a foundational course in feeling based yoga.
Although I have studied with many teachers, my main passion is to serve as a catalyst for transformation and embodiment,
This is not something which can be learned but is inborn, what is known in the Celtic tradition as Anam Cara (soul friend).
Many of my clients have described my work as spiritual midwifery. Where healing and intimacy with life may be experienced through the ups and downs and not despite them.
I am also a poet, writer and lover of all that is soulful and wild.
My inspirations include:
Poets: Mary Oliver, Rilke, David Whyte, Sandra Sabatini, Hafiz, Rumi, May Sarton, John O’Donoghue, Clarissa Pinkola Estes.
“Poetry is language against which we have no defences’. David Whyte
Spiritual teachers/ influences : Everyone I meet and work with and most of all my partner. I am also interested in the work of Marion Woodman, David Deida, Adyashanti, Robert Augustus Masters and many others in the realm of Embodied Transformation.
