With a 37 year background in human resources management, I experienced time and again how life sapping and physically debilitation long-terms performance stresses can become.

My personal experience and introduction to BodyTalk began in 2011 whilst having to find ways myself to deal with the non-stop stressful career and it helped tremendously.  But it was only when my own health issues could not be addressed by means of just conventional medicine anymore that my BodyTalk journey started. After 16 knee surgeries over my lifespan, still in pain and having tried everything else, I realized that pain always acts as a messenger to show us what is not working in our bodies and that western medicine only addressed the symptoms and not the causes.  It was during this process that I discovered the real value and power of BodyTalk on my whole Bodymind.

In this era of "pill-popping" as quick fixes, this healing modality is mind-blowing on so many levels and it never ceases to amaze me as to our body's own healing capabilities when well balanced and synchronized.  I am eternally grateful for stumbling upon BodyTalk, and incredibly humbled that I can now assist others in their healing journey and leading quality lives.

It also made me realize that it could be just as powerful a modality for animals who cannot speak for themselves and that led me to qualify as a Certified BodyTalk for Animals Practitioner. 

Living in a human environment often causes conflict with the natural instinct of animals an may manifest as physical, behavioural and emotional malfunctioning within an animal's bodymind. This can lead to dis-ease and are most often mistaken as behavioural issues.  BodyTalk for animals addresses all these levels.

My passion these days are to help us humans understand our pets and their needs better and assist them in leading longer, happier lives. 

I am also a Access BARS Practitioner and Reiki Master.  I look forward to assisting you and your furry family on your healing journey.
