Offering a range of therapy and counselling services
the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park
I have always been fascinated by life and
been curious to understand who I really am.
My father was a vicar and my mother a nurse
which has deeply inspired me to want to help
people too. This desire has led me over many
years to read a lot of books and attend
courses on everything from meditation to
mindfulness. My journey also led me to spend
a year living in community on the tiny
Hebridean Isle of Erraid, off the south west
coast of Mull and near to Iona.
I now offer some of the most effective
complementary therapies that really worked
for me. I have used Bach Remedies for over
40 years; started working with Reiki in
2006; spent time training with the Openhand
Foundation to be a facilitator; and have
Freedom Techniques to be an extraordinarily
powerful counselling tool and self-help
Having found strategies to cope better with
life's challenges, I hope I can help people
discover their own.

Long before training as a Dru yoga teacher, I have always loved yoga and during many years of living abroad, used it as a grounding and calming tool which also kept me physically fit. I also had a deep sense that we had lost our strong connection to our intuitive healing abilities. I was attracted to a degree in Medical Anthropology and my world was transformed through the study of many different cultural approaches and uses of intuitive and traditional healing.
My journey in sound healing has taken many years and still continues. Yoga and sound have a long and rich history, providing a synergistic relationship between our own frequency and the universe around us.
As a qualified and experienced Dru Yoga Teacher, Dru Prenatal Yoga Teacher and Sound Therapist, I provide individual personalised therapy and run regular sound baths.
As a practitioner, I combine the energy and flow of Dru Yoga with the therapeutic benefits of sound. Through this synergy, it is possible to re-balance and restore mind, body and soul in a dance of restorative movement.

In 2012 Sound Therapy accidentally found me. During a yoga class, my teacher told us all about a 'Sound Bath' - a healing mediation - which was happening later that week. It didn't immediately appeal but I found myself, a few days later, laying on a mat in a village hall with 10 strangers, absorbing a Sound Bath. It moved me deeply on a level I'd never experienced before.
I felt as though my soul had been touched and it was the beginning of a long journey of growth for me.
I had been aware that I lacked self-esteem, self-belief and self-confidence and had tried some therapies to change these traits, but to no avail until I discovered the healing power of sound. I qualified in 2016, trained with Jane Ford and hold a Diploma in Sound Therapy.
