I started working as a healer some 25 years ago after I had witnessed the effects of healing on my son who at the time was being treated for cancer. I remain convinced that it had a beneficial effect on him and helped him survive the gruelling medical treatment that he needed to go through to be cured. Just as importantly, it gave him peace allowing his body and soul to heal and was beneficial to his emotional wellbeing.
Since that time I trained as a massage therapist and then as a hypnotherapist and am qualified Reiki, and relaxation therapist and mindfulness trainer.

My work ethic is treating people with gentleness, understanding and compassion using a non-judgmental approach. I have worked with vulnerable people for many years and
bring many years of experience to my therapy, and have undergone continuous training and personal development. I have taken what I consider the best elements from experienced people and adapted their knowledge to form my own practice.
