Where it all began
An appetite for healthy living started young, we lived deep in the Dorset countryside and our lives seemed to be entwined with nature in every way. The long walks and cycling through the country lanes to get to anywhere, the resident pigs, goats and horses in the village that we would feed and occasionally be invited to church on a Sunday! Food produce either came from your garden, local farms or a community ‘produce swap’. My sisters and I were always encouraged to help create something in the kitchen, and the association between farm or ground to fork was present from an early age.
In my early twenties our dad passed away, which was devastating to our family. I was living in a vibrant city with a busy social life when I started to feel unhappy and disconnected from myself and the world around me. I was in a chronic state of emotional stress and anxiety, and experiencing incredibly painful digestive issues.
My experience with prescribed medication hadn’t given me the desired results I had hoped for, so I started to explore different options.
I started working with a local Naturopath in Oxford where I was living at the time. She helped me to see the root cause of my issues, the grief I was suppressing and the lifestyle I was living was making me physically ill and medication wasn’t the answer for me. I was encouraged to make changes to my diet and lifestyle and learn how to manage my emotional stress through various therapies and classes. Reflexology, meditation and breathwork was particularly healing for me.
The experience completely changed the way I viewed my health and the choices I was making. Learning how my emotional state directly impacted my physical health and wellbeing was empowering, I felt a sense of control and responsibility for my health. I I felt a reconnection to myself and the world around me, I felt happy and vibrant again.
I became so inspired by my healing journey that I decided to retrain as a Reflexologist in 2005 with the Bayly School in London. My passion for using food and lifestyle as medicine continued, and in 2018 I started my studies in Naturopathic nutrition so I could pass on the knowledge professionally. I feel extremely privileged to be able to share these treatments and help others with their own healing journey.
