Since my life changed in 2004, after selling a successful pub/restaurant business, I seized the opportunity to build on my initial love and to at last use my Psychology degree. With a few oblique steps and a year studying Anatomy & Physiology, Swedish Massage and Reflexology; I became a Reiki practitioner, trained with the Vodder School in Manual Lymphatic Drainage with Combined Decongestive Therapies Level III. But then Art Riggs, assisted by James Earls, hooked me into the world of Structural Integration and with the guidance of KMI, I had found a home for my mind, intuition and hands. Applied Psychology made sense and the invitation to help others find movement and embodiment is a gift I cherish each day. I hope to expand my work to athletes, actors, and performers. I have been fortunate to become a somanaut through a gift received in one of Gil Hedley’s human dissection workshops. This changed my life and my work, brought a depth and an understanding, and helped my fingers see a little more clearly.
I just graduated with a MSc Physiotherapy and work from my private practice overlooking the North East coast of England and on the very edge of the North Yorkshire Moors.
