Living in the Cotswolds.
For the past 30 years, I have been consciously journeying in the tradition of Celtic Wisdom honouring fully the feminine and ancestors through earth-based spirituality. I have been lucky to work alongside some truly inspiring and gifted individuals, along with inspiration from the work of Joanna Macy and my grandmother who was a wise healer and teacher. My love of nature and the earth and has been with me from birth. Always having a deep connection to and empathy for all living vibrational beings. My practice values have their roots Druidry, nature-based spirituality and neuroscience, with strength in kindness, gratitude and a down to earth sensibility.
I feel that body and mind are deeply interwoven together. One without the other creates a dis-connection to our very essence of being. From my own lived experience I value the holistic approach to the body and mind.
Experiencing working holistically with people, encouraging a sense of personal choice, is something I’m passionate about. I hope to offer a creative, safe space, that is intuitive and nurturing, enabling personal growth, awakening and empowerment; visualising the bigger picture and restoring a sense of well being.

As a creative artist, working with the body and within nature, I have spent time experiencing the complete immersion of self and spirit in nature, welcoming the flow of passion and grief in its dance of simplicity. Connecting to a deep honouring of these lands sacred spaces, reflected in my work ethos of kindness, gratitude and heart connectivity.
I Work intuitively with the magic of metamorphosis flowing the creative soul-source my own unique flow, in whatever medium that may manifest.
As a self taught artist I enjoy working with inspiration from folk art and earth given gifts such as willow, wood and feathers.
