I’ve had a wonderfully varied career starting with a Zoology degree at Manchester University followed by academic research and an MSc. After this I changed direction developing and managing computer systems for a large Management Consultancy then, wanting a more rewarding role, becoming Research Manager at a small environmental consultancy. Once my twins were born I was a full-time mum, later self-employed selling washable nappies which I could fit around a busy home life.
I first became interested in complementary therapies at University when a friend’s mother introduced me to homoeopathy. As a Science graduate I had only ever heard it ridiculed but I could FEEL that small tablet working and I became an instant convert. Soon afterwards I took up Tai Chi and my first steps into a different way of viewing the world had been taken. Over the next few years I also visited a hypnotherapist and had some acupuncture. I could feel the value of all these approaches but also noted how certain situations would make the same symptoms return as if some underlying issues remained unresolved. A visit to a therapist would restore me but there was still a feeling that what I really needed was something that could go deeper.
Then in November 2009 I had a BodyTalk session. I went along wondering what this would be like and was so blown away by that first session that I have never looked back – this was the therapy that I had been waiting for! Those underlying causes were being addressed and I felt more at peace than I could ever remember. This was even more remarkable considering the state I was in at the time. My extremely stressful marriage was almost at an end, I was having huge problems with my digestion and had lost over one and a half stone from my already slender frame so I was a bit of a mess!
Over the next months the BodyTalk sessions helped me to gain clarity of thought and my husband and I parted, my digestion settled down and I started to regain weight. I took the Access class which gave me a technique to use on myself to maintain progress in between BodyTalk sessions and life was looking up. I got divorced and felt inspired to take a new direction and train as a BodyTalk practitioner, so I took Fundamentals in March 2011, qualifying as a Practitioner later that year. My health has continued to improve, I've got my bounce back and I can feel the layers of baggage peeling away.
The BodyTalk system is more than a therapy - each course allows such profound shifts in perspective that it truly is a journey. So when I take a new module to offer more to my clients and bring greater awareness to my sessions I find I enrich my own life too and my desire to learn more just increases. I just love being a BodyTalk Practitioner!
