My Story

I'm a mum to two wonderful, neurodiverse young adults and two crazy furbabies. My background includes 17 years of experience as a teacher, supporting the social and emotional well-being of children. This has been developed by undertaking postgraduate courses in Personal, Social, and Health Education (PSHE) and Special Educational Needs Coordination.


My role has involved identifying, teaching and planning support to develop the emotional well-being of neurodiverse children and those who struggle with social, emotional, and mental health difficulties. It’s involved helping to develop relationship-building skills with children who struggle to form and maintain friendships. It’s also involved helping those who struggle to recognize and manage their emotions to develop skills in these areas.

As someone who suffered from childhood anxiety myself, I am absolutely passionate about teaching children these skills from a young age.

My own critical illness gave me a deeper, more personal insight into the importance of emotional well-being and my recovery was aided by self-care techniques. These included Reiki, meditation, good nutrition, a positive mindset, a supportive husband and family and my super dog, Daisy, who taught me loads. This led me onto another path as a holistic therapist and Angelic Reiki Master/Teacher. I also rediscovered my love of crystals, energy work, and other fascinating spiritual subjects.





Quieting my mind through mindfulness and meditation has not only helped me to manage stress and anxiety, but it has also helped me to feel more connected and grounded. In today’s busy society, there has never been more of a need for us to learn to quieten the mind. It's never too late, or too early to learn these skills and I strongly believe that teaching them to children from a young age will help prevent dis-ease at a later date, which in turn can cause ill health.

I’ve had the good fortune to share my life with many furry friends over the years. From our cheeky cat, ‘Dodger the Lodger’ who came knocking at our door one day and soon moved in; our chipmunks, Oho and Timone, who kept us endlessly entertained with their determination and teamwork; and an elderly horse I used to look after, who clearly had her own perspective on life, I have been given so much love, laughs and enjoyment over the years. All these wonderful animals have entered my life with important lessons – to love freely – including yourself, to give willingly, to enjoy life, to have fun, to live in the moment and to do what you love.


It is my absolute pleasure to help you and your children learn skills and techniques to help you develop positive mental health and emotional well-being, through meditation, holistic therapy and the help of many wonderful animals.
