I was a very intuitive and creative child; I could hear, sense and ‘just know’ things. I decided to study Art; something which had always brought me a sense of peace, joy and complete presence. But my thoughts turned to “studying art won’t lead to a proper job”, “you will never make it, you are not good enough”.
Eventually, not being able to stop the cycle of self-limiting beliefs and subsequent anxiety, I gave up my dream and got that ‘proper’ job in an office!
Life seemed to flow along quite happily until the run-up to my 30th birthday when I started to reflect and delve a little deeper into where I was in my life and how I felt about it.
According to society and my family, I was in a positive place; I had a successful career in recruitment, a lovely home, great friends etc, however, I felt so unhappy, lost, uninspired and without purpose. This is when I started to look for answers and when my interest in becoming a complementary therapist began.
I no longer wanted to conform to what society, my culture and even my family had told me was best for me. I wanted to create my own path in life. I wanted to find out who I was and not what I had been taught to be.
My first role as a Therapist was in a 5* wellness hotel resort in Cyprus. Here, I was surrounded by talented healers from around the world and it was here that I first experienced energy healing. It was a profound experience beyond my comprehension, and it was from this point that everything changed in my life.
I had found my calling. I spent the next decade learning and developing my craft. Taking inspiration from eastern and western philosophies and spiritual and scientific teachings. Although I didn’t realise it at the time, it was all in preparation for what lay ahead!
In 2016 I was living back in the UK. My health had significantly deteriorated, and it became necessary to have surgery due to chronic endometriosis, which caused daily debilitating pain. The surgery would stop my pain but would also mean I would never be able to carry a child of my own. This was probably the lowest point in my life, I felt alone, lost and a sense of profound sadness.
The pain seemed to consume me. I didn’t know what else to do but surrender to it and when I did, I felt the beautiful presence of what I believe to be that of an angelic being. I felt an amazing warmth that surrounded my being. It was like being gently wrapped in a blanket of love. This happened numerous times during this period. It made be aware that we are never alone and are always taken care of. This knowledge gave me the strength to start all over again with a different perspective on life and what I wanted to do with the rest of my time here.
So here I am today, still passionate and loving the work I do. Continually learning and growing and always honouring who I truly am and what I am meant to do in this life.
