I provide a space for you to breathe, to let your mind rest and your energy rise.
After graduating with a BSc (Hons) in Life Sciences from Cardiff University in 1998, I went on to study homeopathy and holistic health therapies. I attained an ITEC diploma in reflexology in 2007, and further qualifications in massage, Hopi ear and attunement to REIKI master in 2008. I qualified in hypnotherapeutic counselling skills with a practitioners diploma in clinical hypnotherapy from Surrey College of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy in 2015 and have recently undertaken a certificate in nutritional counselling with the College of Naturopathic Nutrition and I am a fully insured hypnotherapist, reflexologist, Reiki master and holistic therapist.
I am a reiki practitioner and reiki healing naturally forms part of your treatment. It is a guiding and healing force and is why so many of my clients report a depth of relaxation they haven't ever experienced before. Reiki addresses the natural energetic flow in the body. There are certain concentrated energy points or chakras located in the body that allow life force energy to flow in or out. In a healthy person these chakras are balanced and open, but it is easy to alter their optimum flow with encounters of stress. Stress is an inevitable part of life and serves the important growth and development of our psyche. It requires mental processing and release in order to be removed from our energetic body or aura. If this processing does not occur because the emotions or feelings produced are unwanted or too painful, we push the stress deeper into our energy body and block its natural flow. This is why it is often that one emotional event will trigger past memories associated with the same feeling. These blockages can be picked up by a Reiki practitioner even if they remain unconscious to the recipient. Reiki energy guides the release and cleanses the aura of energy blocks.
