I am a mother and grandmother, living and working from my home in beautiful South Devon, UK. My ancestry is mixed, Irish and Mauritian, and I travelled the world extensively before settling with my family in Dartington. I continue to enjoy the diversity of nature, to sing and to write when inspiration strikes me.
I am a registered biodynamic craniosacral therapist and a chartered and state registered physiotherapist with over 30 years' experience in healthcare education and practice.
My career began at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, where I lived and worked for 4 years alongside medical and nursing staff, gaining experience on the wards of many London teaching hospitals and having access to the fascinating contents of the medical school library and anatomy labs. These experiences inspired in me a lifelong fascination with the mysteries of the human body and its workings.
I explored many traditions and modalities of holistic health before retraining as a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist at the world renowned Karuna Institute in 2007. Life events including relocation to Devon, the birth of children, recovery from illness and bereavement, and shamanic studies have all played a part in my journey of personal healing and spiritual growth.
I had the good fortune to study extensively with Franklyn Sills and Katherine Ukleja, both world leaders in our field, and later to be guided and mentored by these elders as I continued to assist and teach at Karuna, progressing to senior tutor in 2017.
At this time I began to teach at post-graduate level, maintaining a full schedule of workshops in the UK and overseas alongside the foundation trainings at Karuna. I progressed further into co-ordinating and leading the professional training at Karuna, culminating in the graduation of our final cohort of new practitioners in June 2020.
I am an accredited supervisor and international teacher of BCST, weaving together the cultivation of heart-centred presence and mindful awareness with a profound appreciation of the Intelligent forces and processes of Life. I teach across Europe and the Americas, and on my home ground at the Forest School of Biodynamics, located in a beautiful woodland setting in Dartington, Devon UK.
I maintain a small and vibrant clinical practice when I'm not travelling, and that (along with my two small grandsons) helps to keep me grounded and feeds my heart.
