My journey began in the early 2000’s, when I was in a demanding job, constantly feeling unwell, tired to the point of exhaustion, highly stressed and working long hours. Sound familiar?
Then along came the first of our two children. I began to feel more overwhelmed, exhausted, but ignored it all because I had a small human to take care of. That’s a parent’s job, right?? To put everyone before your own needs???
The turning point came when my mentor said,
“You cannot pour from an empty cup”
It was a true light bulb moment.
I realised that by putting everyone else’s needs before mine, was leaving me completely drained, dis-ease was setting in, to the point where I was barely able to look after those I cared most about.
With the support of my husband and my mentor (a Remedial Massage & Bowen Therapist), I retrained as a Massage Therapist, which gave me the freedom to create a work/life balance, not only to care for our children, but to take care of ME. When I put myself first, found that I was better able to care for others, handle stress better and feel more “whole” as a human being.
Jump ahead to now, I’ve been working in this area of health and wellbeing for almost 18 years, and I love it!
I am passionate about helping my clients find their own work/life balance, help them to feel better, help them to move better and to empower them to take control of their own wellbeing.
Everyone is unique, and everyone has individual needs. I am constantly learning new techniques and modalities, so that I can provide you with the best holistic therapies that will suit your individual needs.
