I started my own holistic therapy business following the long term illness and death of my mum in my early 20’s. Prior to this time I had been training as a solicitor, however following the difficulties I faced through my own grieving journey, I decided I wanted to help others find help in the same way that I had done, through meditation and other alternative therapies. Since this time I have worked with a number of different charities and organisations including different hospices’, teaching meditation as a self help tool. I also now run the North West and West Midlands school for the British School of Meditation, training others to become meditation teachers. I am
trained in trauma sensitive mindfulness and also mental health first aid.
In addition to meditation I am also an EFT practitioner and Reiki Master Teacher. I incorporate all of these modalities in my work with clients, particularly within my specialism of grief. I have recently gained an MSc in Psychology, with a specialist focus on grief, conducting my own research into grief support in the UK and how our
unwillingness to talk about death in modern society can lead to a lack of support following bereavement.
Having gained two masters degrees, one in Exercise Physiology and one in Research Psychology, I spent a few years lecturing before running a successful business as a personal trainer for 20 years. After the sudden death of my husband in 2002 my life took a new path of healing and self- discovery and subsequently I have developed a
new career from that experience.
Since 2006 I have worked with hundreds of individual clients specialising in working with all forms of loss. I regularly run training courses in all the energy therapies I use. Along with specialised grief training courses for practitioners. I am an EFT Master Trainer, Matrix Reimprinting practitioner and trainer, META-Health coach and trainer, crystal therapist and meditation teacher. With my own personal experiences of loss, extensive research and having worked with hundreds of bereaved clients have all contributed to running grief retreats. I am writing a book to help those grieving. I also, speak regularly on the physical, psychological, emotional and social aspects of loss.
