'Thank you for exploring my website'
'I've always loved nature.
But, it took two significant events in my life to truly appreciate its power.'
In 2002, I lost my father and in 2007, I was diagnosed with breast-cancer.
Although heartbreaking, these experiences helped illuminate nature as the root of all healing – motivating me to follow my heart and start Satori.
I bring a rich career in reflexology; and since 2015 I began studying traditional basket making with the late English master craftsman, Mr. Ivor Hancock.
My personal self-development and study is wide-ranging, from disciplines such as shamanism and Focusing. In 2022, after a 3-year post-graduate training, I qualified as a Pesso Boyden Psychotherapist (PBSP). And, I'm currently undertaking a clinical placement in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy.
In 2015/16 I completed the foundation-year of a herbalist's apprenticeship with Sensory Solutions, run by two very passionate women, I then progressed on to a one-year wild food teacher training course with Ffyona Campbell.
Inspired by my cancer journey and whilst studying on my philosophy degree at the University of East Anglia (UEA) - I discovered the power of creative writing for wellbeing.
This all said, ultimately I know it’s not just my credentials that bring a connection to what I offer, it’s my care for people, my warm spirit and my love of Mother Earth.
