As a child I was always aware I was a little different. Compared to most, I seemed more sensitive to my surroundings and the feelings of others. I lived with my parents in the beautiful village of Almondsbury, just outside of Bristol. Back then we were surrounded by golden corn fields in the summer, bluebell woods in the spring and the constant mooing of cows…
The Calling Of Nature
I loved being close to nature and often spent my time playing by the stream, somehow never feeling as if I was really on my own. My weekend friends were my nine guinea pigs and I loved to paint and draw flowers, walk our dogs in the fields after school and listen to music by ‘Prince’. Much of the time, I also enjoyed losing myself in films such as ‘The Golden Voyage of Synbad’ and ‘Jason and the Argonauts’; always curious about the idea of magic and the lost lands.
Creativity & People
Much of my youth was spent harnessing my love of art. After school I qualified with a BA (Hons) in ceramics, and then later found a synergy within HR and specifically ‘People Development’. Subsequently, I went on to forge a 10 year career learning about people and how to help them work more effectively in teams. I offered career guidance, coaching and strategic planning.
Along that journey I became qualified in Myers Briggs Type Indicator and Occupational Personality Questionnaire Testing. This further deepened my knowledge of people, personality and their innate behaviours.
In 2007 I qualified in as a Reiki practitioner and later a Crystal therapist. Life’s toils had opened a door to another world. Whilst working p/t as a therapist, I also starting working as the ceramics specialist at my old school in 2017. I found a lovely balance by blending my art (my own therapy) with my healing work for clients. To this day, I combine my love of creating ceramics inspired by nature, with healing. My aim is to give people the tools to heal themselves and within that tool box, is a deep appreciation in the natural healing power of nature. This is why I use leaves in all my ceramic art!
I believe we all have a ‘Soul Contract’ and if I can help those who come to me, find the path that leads them to fulfil their own contract, then my heart is content. Thank you for allowing me to join you on a journey of discovery about your wonderful and unique self, to help you unveil and embrace your highest potential in this life and beyond!
