After redundancy in 2001, I was fortunate enough to spend a year training in Holistic Therapies; I also took my 1st & 2nd Reiki attunements. Once qualified, I began seeing clients alongside my day job, initially in corporate sales and then in local government social care. My interest and learning of alternative therapies continued throughout this time. I became fascinated by the subconscious mind after reading Dr Joseph Murphy's book 'The Power of the Subconscious Mind'. I also read Dr Brian Weiss's 'Many Masters, Many Lives', which piqued my interest in past-life and regression therapy, which led me to train as a clinical Hypnotherapist. My career moved into the charity sector, and an opportunity to begin a degree in community development. While studying, I also completed my Reiki master's degree.
During this time, my husband and I became one of the many couples to experience issues around fertility. This heartbreaking struggle led to experiencing insomnia, palpitations, anxiety, panic attacks and depression. My journey back to balance and wellbeing began with guided meditations, which I listened to nightly to help me sleep when my mind was overwhelmed. I underwent counselling to talk through the negative thoughts I was experiencing, and Hypnotherapy helped reduce my feeling of being overwhelmed by the whole situation. I also started journaling daily to help express any emotions that I couldn't share with anyone else.
My passion for wellbeing began over 25 years ago. My learning about this subject has been continuous for my emotional and mental care and with each new client, who gives me a unique insight into how people heal and move forward on their journey to wellness.
My love for all things holistic started after my Grandad developed Dementia and as an aid to my Nan, who was caring for him and taking the brunt of his moods, insomnia and anxiety. I researched many holistic therapies and alternative treatments, from herbs and essential oils to nutrition and reflexology.
I continued to see clients in my home therapy room for 12 years until taking a leap of faith and opening The Haven Wellbeing Hub in February 2015. The Hub was a long-held dream, and a key aim was to pass on as much knowledge on alternative therapies, products and classes to those needing healing. I also wanted to create a space for the therapists to refer their clients to other beneficial services within the same building.

My passion for alternative therapies has continued over the past eight years with further training, including becoming an Angelic Reiki Master, Atlantean Healer, and Dragon Light Healer, and further study on Past Life Regression & Hypnotherapy. During lockdown, I kept myself busy by adding coaching to my tool kit and becoming an accredited Self-Belief Coach.
In the summer of 2022, I downsized my business and now work independently in a therapy room in Binfield, I can't wait to work with you.
