I am an Online Breathwork Coach, providing trauma-informed breathwork for self-discovery and emotional healing. I am based in the UK and I offer sessions to English and French speakers.
I am dedicated to finding effective ways to support people so that they can transform life’s hardships into an awakening process that will lead them to their rightful place in life.
As well as working with themes of change in the corporate and entrepreneurial sectors, I spent five years coaching people who were healing from mental health difficulties, and three years coaching people with type 2 diabetes to make lifestyle changes and improve their health.
I developed techniques that helped people to identify their interests and innate talents, and to work towards careers that would feel meaningful for them.
Along the way, I learnt that some of the most difficult changes needed to be addressed by including the body and the breath. This led me to learn how to work with the body and the breath as a way of meeting and releasing emotional pain, and also expanding into aspects of the self that had previously been inaccessible.
My work is focused on helping people to access the energy of the heart so that they can use the wisdom that it holds to gain a real sense of themselves, their values and their purpose in life.
Having already trained in anatomy, physiology and massage in 2002, I spent three years training in a body and breathwork technique known as Amanae.
This training began with a focus on my own healing process, and subsequently included learning to facilitate others. As of the end of 2023 I have accumulated over 2000 hours of bodywork, breathwork and coaching practice.
A valuable support to my training was my own long-term therapeutic process, which spanned over more than two decades. This provided a forum to go deeper into my inner world and to develop the tools to work intelligently with the issues that arose. It has given me a valuable reference point for some of the issues that my clients encounter.
I regularly collaborate with colleagues within my discipline to facilitate group sessions, meditation groups and retreats in Whitstable, Kent.
I run my own body and breathwork practice at a multi-disciplinary clinic in Kent, and I have been offering online breathwork coaching since the lockdowns in 2020.
I undertake regular continuous professional development (scroll down for more information).
I am currently completing an Integrated Certificate In Life Holistic Life Coaching run by Wellness Professionals At Work to consolidate and add to the coaching experience I’ve gained in the field over the years.
