After watching my son suffer for many years with severe hayfever and numerous allergies and gaining no relief from orthodox medicine I decided to seek help from a holistic therapist.I was staggered at the results obtained in a relatively short space of time and I made the decision that I wanted to train in complementary healthcare, in order to enable others take control of their own health.Firstly I completed Diplomas in both Allergy and Environmental Therapy
and Anatomy and Physiology at the British Institute of Allergy and Environmental Therapy. I then undertook a Diploma in Kinesiology with the Classical Institute of Kinesiology which incorporated Nutrition, Clinical Medicine and Counselling. I was given the accolade of the Student of the Year Award.
I have also trained with Vera Peiffer (Hairgrowth UK), a renowned author and Kinesiologist who teaches Health Kinesiology techniques specifically aimed at female hair loss. Following this I completed Diplomas in Nutritional Therapy and Crystal Healing. I trained to Master/Teacher Level in Reiki. I have also completed certified courses in Flower Remedies, Hopi Ear Candles, Colour and Sound Therapy and Emotional Freedom Technique.
I am a fully qualified Mind Detox Method Practitioner having undertaken training at the Mind Detox Academy with author, teacher and founder of the method Sandy Newbigging. I have experienced first-hand how quickly this method empowers and has the ability to change people’s lives. I have since completed a Diploma in NLP and Coaching to expand my knowledge in this field.
I am lucky enough to have trained to teach meditation and mindfulness with both Shamash Aladina (author of Mindfulness for Dummies) and Sandy Newbigging (author of Mind Calm published by Hay House), two of the UK's leading experts in their field.
Alongside practising my therapies I am also a freelance writer specialising in Health and Disability articles.
In 2012 I co-created www.thehappystarfish.com an online community dedicated to Health, Happiness and Peaceful Living.
