Changing my life for the better
I practice from home in the quite village of Barrington, a beautiful village surrounded by the Somerset Levels and the Blackdown Hills and with the wonderful Jurassic coastline of Dorset only a short drive away. Here, as I explore the beautiful bird reserves, the outstanding National Trust properties and the stunning countryside, I am finally finding the inner peace which enables me to live a far more holistic life.
I passionately believe we can heal our own lives with the right guidance, support and understanding and was lucky enough to be given this opportunity myself after being diagnosed with a series of health issues in 2016; it was then I realised that I needed to change my life significantly. Now meditation and mindfulness are for me a daily practice together with following a healthy diet and doing plenty of exercise. Having worked in the pharmaceutical industry all my life - both in manufacturing and as a pharmacy dispenser - I knew I really didn't want to return to work via the drug route, especially as it was believed the 'flu vaccine had contributed to my health problems in the first place.
It was a friend who suggested I try Reiki and this was the turning point of my career. I am now qualified as a Seichem practitioner, have a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and have studied macrobiotics and Chinese diagnosis. I am currently studying nutrition and also looking into the areas of sound and crystal healing.
As well as involving myself in personal healing, I find myself increasingly looking for ways in which I can make a difference to both my environment and the world in general. I am not in a position to make global changes but believe that, along with others, by doing my bit we can hopefully together create a wave of change. For example, I recycle most of my waste and am in the process of making items such as my own washing up liquid. These may be small changes but all go towards making a larger difference.
I have a wonderful support network of family and friends and it is these people, together with my beliefs in Gaia and in the Universe, that keep me grounded. My healing journey has now led me to a place where I wish to assist others along their journey, helping each to find the peace and love that is held within and to truly become the person they were meant to be.
