The essential joy of my work comes from sharing what I have learned – and am still learning – from sixteen years of personal growth and healing.
Between the ages of nineteen and twenty-four, shortly after I had become interested in meditation, Buddhism and Yoga, I found out I had ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). At my worse I was housebound with severe mental and physical fatigue, headaches and dizziness.
I explored many healing methods including mindfulness, meditation, Yoga, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and receiving bodywork – such as the Bowen Technique – to eventually make a full recovery. My need for awareness and growth was accelerated during this time and I was stretched on all levels.
Ultimately I needed to learn various lessons to be fully well again. Such as to honour my own feelings more and to communicate them. To follow my own path and purpose in life. To clear trauma and emotional blockages from my body-mind system.
You can read my full story including spiritual crisis and kundalini awakening in my book ‘You Can Heal Chronic Illness, The Lotus Process: 8 Steps to Health and Happiness’ which is available on Amazon. It was both a deeply transformative and at times arduous journey, ranging from the depths of despair; to experiences of radiant healing energy flowing through my body.
In 2005, when I was twenty-three, I began training in several holistic healing modalities and launched my integrated therapy business in 2006. Since my health recovery I have also ran a couple of half-marathons and in 2014 I became a mother to my son, Leo.
