My career as a Registered General Nurse and Transformation Coach has spanned 35 years. I poss ess anatural empathy, being aware of subtle energies in people around me and the environment, able to pick up on distress, dis -ease, dysfunctional lives.
I have been privileged to support people from all walks of life, during the times of their lives that they need a helping hand, when the way that they are "Doing Life", is just not working. As your psychotherapist coach I ensure that you feel safe with, and a service that is 100% confidential. If you are lost, unable to find your way on the path of life, it is extremely important to feel listened to and understood.
A little information about myself because it is important for you to know my background if I am to help you.
Life itself is my passion; every breath, every waking moment, every dawn is the chance to reinvent yourself, transform your life, start afresh. I have born witness to the twists and turns of life, seen much, cried much, laughed much. I follow a nature spirituality, recognising that there are times when we all need to step off the treadwheel of our life, to cease the constant "Doing", to pause a while, to just "BE", to celebrate all we do have, to remember, and in that space we can experience much grace,inspiration and most important of all a sense of hope, joy and wonder.
I have personnally downsized my life to find harmony and balance, I now live with my husband on our narrowboat "Gently Bentley", in Warwickshire. Tragedy in 2016, left my husband Paul disabled requiring 24/7 care, I put my life on hold to care for him, a committment that nearly destroyed me, I therefore have the greatest respect for all those invisible "Carers", in society. My training and psychology knowledge enabled me to save myself and move forward to providing a life in balance for us. We chose to dispose of 99% of our possessions including 3 vintage cars, which has been utterly uplifting as too much "stuff" was holding us back ,and now with less stuff we live a Simple Happy Life on our narrowboat. I appreciate that not all are suited to living in such a small space but we have never been as happy, we just have to be more organised !!!
I love life. I love having the opportunity to fully experience the wonders of the world in its many forms: the fickleness of fellow humans, the enchanting ways of the animals; the diverse landscapes of rivers, ancient woodlands, majestic trees, mountains ,valleys; sheep grazing, spring green grass, ripened wheat in the fields, lambs frolicking in the meadows, the feel of the breeze against my skin, the touch of Mother Earth beneath my bare feet, the caress of rain against my cheek, the crunch of newly arrived crisp white snow… I love hugs, kisses, kindness, loyalty, authenticity, reliability, excellent customer service, quality gifts made with love and attention to detail, and mindfulness.
To live in the present moment, to live in the ‘NOW’. When we constantly return to past endeavours good or bad, we erase the NOW. To be constantly worrying or planning for a future which is yet to be, denies the now, and NOW is all we ever actually have. I believe in making each and every NOW moment count.
When the Dali Lama was asked what surprised him most about humanity, he answered:
“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present or the future. He lives as if he is never going to die, then dies never having really lived”.
“There is no time for cut-and-dried monotony. There is time for work: And time for LOVE. That leaves no time”
Enchanted Forests, Sacred Groves
I live with a deep reverence to the beauty of nature; its tranquillity and serenity. Living a life of grace, in tune with the natural cycles and the turning wheel of the year through the seasons and Celtic festivals. I live close to nature, at one with the land, seasons, and stars; blessed with an intuitive & instinctual wisdom, in a World gone mad in its rush towards progress
“The Love of Land, Sea & Sky. The Love of Earth our Home”
The following endorsement from a fellow artist basically sums up my ethos:“I have enjoyed working with such a positive person and feel privileged to know you. You are such a determined and kind Woman and I admire the way you GRAB life and live it to the full”
