Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you find the content helpful.
I’m passionate about working with people who are ready to make a change in their life but feel stuck.
I’m no different to anyone else in that I’ve had and continue to have challenges come my way as I journey through my life. Some have been small, some not so small and some that have quite frankly taken the wind out of my sails.
I’ve not always found it easy to speak about myself. I feared being judged and and/or seen as not good enough. Crazy I know, but it’s such a common fear.
Looking back, it’s perhaps not surprising, I’ve experienced a lot over the years.
I lost my Dad when I was really young and didn’t know how to grieve so just did what everyone else in my family did and carried on as normal and didn’t speak about it.
I grew up struggling with weight issues which coincided with me being sexually abused. In my early teens I struggled with confidence and low self-esteem and went through a spell of being promiscuous. I didn’t find school easy, I struggled to take in the information being taught and felt “stupid” even though I knew I wasn’t.
As an adult I’ve been through relationship breakdowns, struggled with depression, anxiety and fear of failure. I’ve felt guilty for not spending “enough” time with my children and grandchildren while burying myself in work…….. I’m sure you get the picture.
I used to say what I thought people wanted to hear, overcommit to “keep people happy”, say yes when what I really wanted to say was no and moan a lot when things didn’t work as I thought they should.
This cycle, which I felt stuck in, continued for years…… until that is I found Reiki (or it found me) which is when everything started to change for me. I was better able to see that my past didn’t need to define my future. I could make whatever changes I wanted to steer my life in the direction I wanted it to go. That was life changing for me!
I now see my challenges as opportunities to learn and grow. I now understand me much better and quite frankly am loving my life a whole lot more now.
If you feel lost, stuck, anxious or just not loving you or your life, for whatever reason and are ready to make a change, let’s have a chat and figure out together, what’s going on.
My Reiki Journey
My Reiki journey began in 2003, before that I’d not even heard of Reiki.
I’d started a new job working in a medical practice and met a Reiki Practitioner/Teacher who worked there, Zoe Alexander. I had no idea what she did but became really curious. I observed her students as they attended their Reiki training and my curiosity grew. Without knowing much or why, other than being aware of a strong feeling within, I asked if I could join her next Reiki training course……… and so my Reiki journey began.
My journey through life has taken many twists and turns since then, introduced me to many new spiritual practises and teachings and allowed me to grow in knowledge and understanding of me.
As I have increased my Reiki practice, studying to Master Teacher level in 2007, opportunities to grow in strength and confidence have opened up. The challenges that life continually presents me with seem to have more meaning and although I still have to work through the challenges, I’m not pretending it’s easy, I feel much more able.
I’ve found daily meditation, breathing techniques and walking in nature, which my teachers introduced me to, have become a valued part of my day to day and I’m aware how much more peaceful I feel following these practices.
I look forward to each day, embracing opportunities, whatever they may be, to learn and grow and I know I want to share the path that Reiki has set me on with those that feel ready to begin their Reiki journey.
Now eighteen years on, and so many students I’ve lost count, there is nothing I enjoy more than being able, in the best way I know how, to share Dr Usui’s teachings and support others on their journey of self-discovery, growth, health and wellness, as they open up to their full potential.
I know there is a lot more to life than meets the eye and that there is a reason why you are reading this right now. Reiki really does have a way of finding you when the time is right. So if you feel ready to begin your Reiki journey let me know. I’d love to meet you, introduce you to Reiki and share this part of your journey with you.
In addition to Reiki, over the last eighteen years, as part of my self-development and personal growth, I’ve also studied and qualified in Hypnotherapy, Indian Head Massage, Meditation Practice, Mindfulness, NLP and Life Coaching. I use aspects from all of these disciplines when practicing and teaching.
