I am passionate about well-being in all of its expressions.
My life has been a long and wonderful exploration of new therapeutic modalities in synthesis with ancient wisdom practices. I travel a lot which makes my heart sing. I thrive on working with different cultures and cross-cultures.
I have a Masters in Mental Health Psychology, and a Post Graduate diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Counselling. These qualifications are underpinned by a longstanding daily yoga practise, which has given me the motivational and the practical impetus for sustainable holistic living. Something I share with students and clients alike. I am also a certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and a Reiki Master, yoga teacher and Ayurvedic Lifestyle Counsellor. And I have more than thirty years of experience working with adolescents, adults and families all over the world.
Like yours, my life has come with some interesting twists, quirks and turns. I am adopted. An experience that has deeply shaped my life. I love nature and have worked as a landscape gardener, bred rare sheep breeds and lived mostly off my own land. I love building things and have built and renovated many houses. I am also a devotee of Rhodesian Ridgebacks.
Africa, particularly Zimbabwe, calls to my heart unceasingly and I take retreats there every few years. My life oscillates between Africa, the Middle East, the UK and France, where I own a lovingly restored Cognac distillery that offers clients a space to come into Mindful Coherence™.
I believe that life is precious so dance! I believe that everything we uncover from our past can be discovered through the eyes of compassion and recovered back into a state of wholeness.
I have a faith that guides me daily into a deeper coherence. And I have come to the conclusion that I am not a runner but a spinner and a dancer.
Last and certainly not least, I have been married to Fraser for almost thirty-six years, and we have two amazing kids, Josh
and Sophie. All of whom I am grateful for every day of my life. My life is full and blessed and I wish that for everyone.
I wish that for you.
