My goal is to help clients improve their health, fitness and wellbeing with holistic therapies and qigong. Whether you are focusing on your self care to recover from ill health, to maintain your wellbeing or to age well, do get in touch to find out how I can support you.
Having been interested in massage since early adulthood, I was inspired to learn the skill after receiving my first facial massage (which, as luck would have it, I had won in a raffle). It felt such a beautiful, relaxing experience that I wanted to be able to offer the same gift to others. Since qualifying in holistic massage, I have also trained in reflexology, which I find one of the most relaxing treatments. You can find out more about the holistic therapies that I provide in the Holistic Therapies section of this website. Having built up quite a knowledge base in health and wellbeing over the past few years, I am continuing my professional development in 2022 with training in wellbeing coaching with a view to providing that service from the autumn to complement my other work, so watch this space...
I discovered qigong fifteen years ago and immediately knew that I wanted to teach it one day. As the saying goes "when the student is ready, the teacher appears" and so mine did. After practising qigong and tai chi for several years, I completed my three-year qigong teacher training course in 2019 and am now running classes in Berkshire. You can find more about these on the Qigong pages of my website.
In my spare time I enjoy the stimulation of running, swimming and cycling, and relaxing with qigong, tai chi and yoga. I love learning about health and well being, so I usually have a book related to that on the go.
I am a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists and am insured through them.
