About me

I began studying Shiatsu in 1989 at The British School of Shiatsu-Do in London and have earnt my living from Shiatsu ever since graduating three years later. I love that my work is not only enjoyable but also something that has a meaningful impact on people’s lives. 

Although my hands know what they are doing I also feel I know so little which brings the satisfaction of every shiatsu being unique and the lifelong path of studentship and constant learning is a joy. I am currently studying Aroma Point Therapy (using pure Essential Oils on the acupressure points) with Tiffany Carole Pollard.

I have been teaching Shiatsu since 2004 at The British School of SHiatsu-Do  and currently teach in my local community, online, nationally and internationally. I have worked quite extensively with women’s health and a current area of work is supporting women with Shiatsu to ease the challenges that can arise during the menopausal phases.

I welcome people to my practice regardless of their gender, race, ability, religion and sexuality. I wish to create safety for those who work with me because learning and healing will occur in those safe spaces. I acknowledge my own background of racial and socioeconomic privilege and regularly check in with my unconscious bias. I receive regular supervision and am also reflective about my practice and enjoy plenty of peer support. If you wish to have a conversation with me around these issues I am always willing to do that.
