I began my journey into Wellness in 1995, when I took my first Diploma in Holistic Body Massage, in London, taught by the inspiring and talented Chaika Holste. Chaika later taught me further techniques, and became a much respected and appreciated mentor, who I was honoured to partake in reciprocal treatment sessions. 

It wasn’t until 2002 that I took a leap of faith and left my career in catering, to undertake The Fitness Trainers Award with the International Institute of Sports Therapists where I studied to become a Personal Trainer, Fitness Instructor and Sports Massage Therapist.

I began working at the City University Gym at Saddlers Sports Centre, in The Barbican London. Here I worked as gym assistant, whilst also teaching exercise classes, as well as building up clients for personal training and massage.

As time went by, my love for massage and body work slowly took hold as Massage eventually became my full time occupation. Being in the UK, It was compulsory to be an insured member of the CTHA Complimentary Therapists Association, undertaking yearly studies to keep up to date with my CPD (Continuing Professional Development) requirements. I undertook extra studies including Stress Management Massage, Chair Massage, Deep Tissue, No hands Massage, Indian Head Massage Myo-Fascial Release and Rolfing techniques. I also started embarking down the energy healing path of Reiki.

I was very privileged to work at prestigious Integrated wellness clinics in London, including The Vale Practice in Dulwich and Neals Yard Therapy Rooms in Covent Garden. I worked along side, and with Osteopaths, Naturopaths, Homeopaths, Acupuncturist, Shiatsu, Yoga, Reiki, Cranio-Sacral and numerous other modalities. In fact Neals Yard with its 9 Treatments rooms hosted about 90 different therapists offering roughly 23 different treatments.

It was very special working in these places as all the therapists would look after each other and cross refer to ensure the clients were getting the best possible care.

I returned to NZ in 2010, and shortly after set up practice at Seven Senses Wellness Clinic in Richmond Rd, Grey Lynn, where I stayed for a number of years. A bursitis in my elbow forced me to leave massage for a period as I tried my hand at Real Estate to rest my elbow. After visiting John of God in Brazil, other health challenges led me out of work for a year, and slowly returning to massage 2 days a week. As my strength and love of massage grew, I realised body work is my calling. After a spell of regaining my health and energy, (thanks to determination and Redox molecules) I am happy to be offering Chair Massage at the Heart and Soul Holistic and Wellness Markets in Auckland as well as opening a new clinic space in Mt Albert from November 10th, 2010. 

Live with Passion & Purpose

Take care of yourself and indulge in things that make you happy. 

Life is an amazing and precious gift, our ability to endure challenges and hard times can be staggering, for some their life is a constant struggle, how we deal and cope with it is all very individual, and yet the fragility of our robust body can sometimes just slip through our fingers, and be taken away from us.

My life has led me down an incredible path, and one that I am truly grateful for. I’ve been greeted with numerous and varied challenges, which at times have found me heading down a path that endured many heart breaking and life threatening situations The natural human desire and the will to live, teamed up with a strong body that just keeps coming back. I’ve leant many a lessons and look forward to what I have instore for life.

Over the past 10 or so years, after reconnecting to an old trauma combined with my insidious quest for answers.I’ve delved into the world of self discovery, quantum physics, energy healing, meditation and the wonders of our universe.

Everything around us, including us, is made up of energy. We are vibrational beings, and ultimately we choose the life we want to live. Be true to yourself do what you love and follow your bliss.

We are all only humans, separation is the biggest illusion, be kind, forgiving, compassionate and have fun!!

A coach that never criticises 

and sees no flaw in you,

only the perfection of you 

and the potential,

for your realisation of it....

on life

Anyone who is doing anything

because they are suppose to,

is missing the essence of life....
