About me

I know everyone has the potential within them to bring about change. My role is to walk alongside those who wish to grow and change, cultivating with them a safe container where change can be possible.

My passion is supporting others in discovering and knowing who they truly are. I believe the most important relationship we have is with our self. If you don’t know who you are, how can you show up fully in a relationship with another?

My journey started back in 2005 when I learnt Reiki 1, at this point I was learning it just for me, or so I thought!

If I had been asked back then ‘where do you see yourself in 9 years’ time’ not in my wildest dreams would I have imagined running a private practice as a counsellor, reiki teacher, workshop facilitator and speaker.

After learning Reiki 1 I very quickly realised I wanted to go on and learn the other levels. I loved the positive impact using reiki was having on my life and the possibilities, and changes that were coming up as a result of using reiki on a regular basis.

As I worked through the different levels, learning about myself, which was interesting as I thought I knew myself quite well! Reiki showed me where I was not being honest with myself, where I / my life was out of balance and I was holding myself back through self-doubt, limiting beliefs and fear.

In 2009 I qualified as a Usui Reiki Master Teacher, after 18 months of training, with a large proportion of which was focused on my own personal development, letting go of ways of being that were no longer working for me.

My love of working with people, supporting them on their own healing journey, led me to embark, in 2011, on training to become a Counsellor, qualifying in 2014. When I embarked on this training my purpose was to gain a qualification in an area, I felt intuitively drawn to with a desire to support others with their life challenges. Naively, I did not realise how much this would change my relationship with myself, in a good way.

After three years of in depth theoretical and practical learning, alongside my own journey of personal therapy and self-discovery I graduated. The personal development part of the training was similar to Reiki Master Teacher training, in that it allowed me to really get to know myself, what my needs are, what my aspirations are, what makes me feel alive.

I am sure you can see there is a theme for me of studying, learning, and growing. I know my passion for this supports me in holding space for others to walk their own uniquely personal journey of learning, self-discovery, healing and growth.

I continue to discover, learn and grow and know this is a life-long commitment.

What I offer is unique to each individual who chooses to work with me. I bring to each session my knowledge, skills and wisdom. The pace and depth at which we work will be your choice.

If you are intrigued and would like to discover more about how we can work together in a way that is beneficial to you, then please get in touch.

Warmest wishes
