My journey to becoming a BodyTalk practitioner has taken in the sights and sounds of the modern biomedical world (in which I was a researcher for over fifteen years after receiving a BA in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of California) and then via energetic health as seen by the ancient Chinese - specifically via the paradigm of the Five Elements (I earned my acupuncture licence via the School of Five Element Acupuncture in London in 2006). As a practicing Five Element Acupuncturist for the past ten plus years in NorthEast Scotland, I have been keen to find more tools for helping engender healthy body, mind and spirit in the community I serve and thus have studied not only BodyTalk but European Auricular Acupuncture, and Family Constellation Therapy. I am also strengthening my own sense of knowing
via Shamanic Practitioner Training with The Little Red Drum School of Creative Shamanism. BodyTalk has turned out to be more than just a tool, it is a structure through which all the other modalities of healing can be harnessed and employed with ease and confidence as well as bringing all the beauty, subtlety, and power of ancient and modern therapies under one umbrella.
My goal throughout all my studies has been to understand human resilience and how that relates to inheritance - both what we receive and what we pass down. It is in my mind a vital step for humans as a species to disentangle the patterns of inheritance that can hold us so desperately in an energetic that is detrimental to ourselves and therefore to our families, communities and our planet. I am thrilled that BodyTalk can offer straightforward ways to accomplish the kind of disentanglement that is needed by so many of us.

I work locally in clinics in Fife and Glasgow. I also do distance sessions and am in the process of creating online courses. Additionally, I regularly do online circle sessions exploring different themes including the Chinese wheel of the five elemental phases.
