I have been working in the health and beauty industry for 17 years – initially in editorial, assisting health and beauty writers, and then going on to be the marketing manager for The Urban Retreat at Harrods and the website editor of beautybible.com.

I always relied on holistic therapies to help me deal with stress and learned reiki in 2003 so I could self-heal. By 2005 I had trained as a Reiki Master Practitioner but it wasn’t until I was made redundant while six months pregnant with my first child that I had that moment… ‘What am I going to do now?!’

Well, that’s when I became a therapist and never looked back, and I have subsequently trained in other holistic therapies. When I became ill myself with an autoimmune condition that produced inflammation in my colon, glands and skin I turned to a naturopathic nutritionist for help. It made sense to me that there was something I was waiting for that was causing inflammation in my digestive system. Changing how I ate soon made an impact on my health, and it wasn’t long before I was able to come off all my medication. I have been medication free now since 2013 and completely manage my symptoms through diet and healing naturopathic techniques.

This transformation inspired me to study this wonderful healing technique myself so I too can help others to shed the pain, fog and weight of illness and embrace a new life of vitality. I am passionate about helping people to take back control of their health. To not sit back and think ‘I have to live like this’. You have your health in your hands and there is much that you can do to change how you feel, what you think and what you can do.

I hold a diploma in naturopathic nutrition & certificate in nutritional advice from The School of Naturopathic Nutrition in Cardiff. I am also a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT). To be accepted as an FHT member means I have undergone recognised training from accredited training centres, work with a strict code of practice and ethics and I am also fully insured.
