Life’s a journey.
I started dancing at the age of 3. It was the beginning of my fascination with the human body, this avatar we use to navigate life. Like most people, I only saw the bigger picture, the outer layer, muscles. I loved prescribed movement and it made sense that this was what I would do with my life. I moved from the world of aerobics and gym work to the more specialised discipline of Pilates and I opened my dance studio which ran for eleven years. As my knowledge and experience grew, I learned that the framework on which the muscles attach, is just as important. Trauma can cause the entire frame to distort and trying to balance this again can be difficult. I went on to learn the Dorn Technique, where the bones of the body are gently encouraged back into place using movement and permission.
Specialised Kinesiology has given me the joy of discovering energy meridians, acupressure points and brain neurology. PSYCH-K® draws on the work I did in Bruce Lipton’s course, Biology of Belief, and Dr Joe Dispenza’s course, Making Your Mind Matter. I believe my journey of discovery is far from over. It has taken me from the bigger picture, down through the layers to the ethereal world of emotions and energy and the magic of everyday miracles.
Every single client brings their own unique story. I am humbled by their struggles and hardships and deeply grateful to be trusted to join them on their journey to find their power and their life purpose, to unravel the chaos and see the miraculous change that they embrace.
