I came into my area of expertise designed to help you because of the care and comforting support I witnessed being offered to my father at home during the final months of his life, when I decided that I too, wanted to give reassurance and support to people in pain. It was then that I decided, in 1997, after 25 years in teaching, to have a complete change of professional direction, and from then on I have fashioned a unique approach to addressing the problem of emotional and bodily discomfort. It was the most exciting change I have ever made, and I have never looked back.
As a seeker of wisdom I am an avid learner and enthusiastic student, focusing on the journey rather than the destination. I am passionate about gaining wisdom. I regularly attend high quality professional development training in all aspects of my career with world-class specialist trainers, in order to develop and expand my knowledge and skills, and to enable me to offer you very progressive and modern solutions, in addition to traditional modalities that I became aware of whilst studying in an Ayurvedic Centre in Kerula, India
The certifications listed above are just some of the skills I have developed over the years, and they represent the skills most influential in the services I offer to you in my clinical practice. My latest pride and joy in achievement is my equivalent black belt of body-workers – BTEC Level 6, making me one of the very few highly trained therapists who have gained this level of expertise. It enables me to help your pain much efficiently and extensively.
Following my change of career direction, and fresh qualifications, I ran a Podiatry Clinic primarily for seniors, for 6 years at Park Barn Centre, Guildford until I outgrew the scope. I learned a great deal about vulnerable people whilst there, which has proved to be invaluable.
In 1996 I opened my own clinical practice, which is housed in a converted Victorian chapel – Walking On Air Pain Relief Consultancy. In the Old Chapel Practice, I successfully help people like you, of all ages, for relief pain, discomfort, and the maintenance of mobility. I feel that I am blessed to have found such a wonderful calling.
In 2011 I had the privilege of training with and now work in collaboration with Naturopathic Doctor Dr Zyad Ratanzi, and The Wellness Tree.
