My Story

Through developing my awareness of my mind-body connection I discovered an inner landscape of my body which I had never experienced before, one of freedom and of being deeply held by myself and Mother Earth. I began listening to my body and the messages it received, and bit by bit I began to act on these.

From a young age I always loved to dance so it felt like a natural progression to make dancing a career when I was old enough. During my professional training I thrived on the intense training and marvelled at what my body was capable of doing however I was never taught to honour my body and its limits.

In the commercial dance world “go hard or go home” was a popular saying and our bodies were merely seen as objects. No value was placed on embodied and authentic expression of self
and movement and I began to tire of being told how to dance, how to look and what to wear. I am so grateful for this time as I have pretty wild memories of travelling the world with some awesome people, but towards my late 20’s I felt like I had relinquished a huge part of myself to fit into this dance world.

 

It was here that my journey to awakening began.


I dove into ancient practices and modern science. I studied neuropsychology, counselling, yoga, meditation, energy healing, embodiment practices, nature connection, sacred feminine arts, trauma healing and bodywork. Through developing my awareness of my mind-body connection I discovered an inner landscape of my body which I had never experienced before, one of freedom and of being deeply held by myself and Mother Earth. I began listening to my body and the messages it received, and bit by bit I began to act on these.
 

Right towards the end of my dancing career I followed my curiosity to learn more about the brain and physiology and enrolled onto a psychology degree programme at Brunel University. Once graduated and during my time as an assistant clinical psychologist in the NHS I noticed time and time again that talk therapy simply wasn’t sufficient in most cases to produce lasting, positive change. I felt that the role of the body, nervous system and community were largely ignored, which consequently hindered the healing process for my clients. Working holistically, incorporating mind, body, spirit, became a guiding principal of my approach to healing.


This was the point where I felt called to deepen my understanding of yoga and become a yoga teacher. Over the years my practice has been quite sporadic but yet it’s what I’ve always turned to in times of needing support. It was here on my yoga mat that I found a
connection with myself that wasn’t so easy to find in everyday life.

 

Movement, ceremony and nature based practices have guided me back home to my body and helped me find nourishment and peace within - it is how I learnt to reconnect with my body. It has allowed me to see the beauty in how it moves and to be grateful for ALL it communicates with me every single day.


Pregnancy, birthing and mothering became and continue to be my biggest gifts and teacher. Whilst my first two experiences of birthing were particularly challenging, for my third I embraced ancient rituals, ceremonies and practices, listened to my instinctual knowing and then surrendered to the process. This resulted in a dramatically different birth and postpartum experience, one that was both blissful and empowering. Perhaps most importantly, it was also through mothering that I remembered to mother myself. My whole being has been forever changed by these experiences and I feel so passionate about sharing this knowledge.


We are the medicine. We are sacred. We are whole.
Welcome yourself back home as you weave the most exquisite tapestry of your life.
Thank you for hearing the call to rise up and for being here with me.
