Since 1997, as a teacher, I have been offering training in holistic and complementary therapies at a range of levels and to students all over the world.
With many years of training under my belt in aromatherapy, massage and neuroskeletal re-alignment therapy as well as crystal and energy work, I am happy to help anyone and this includes writing for magazines or creating specially designed courses. My most recent article in Positive Health Magazine in February 2021 featured me on the front cover!
