I am keen to use my knowledge and experiences as a way of helping others. I started to understand myself better with the learning of Macrobiotic healing arts: a blend or Taoist methodology, Traditional Chinese medicine healing system and cooking in rhythm with your body. Movement, self expression and creativity became integral for me. After years of eating distress and a disconnect from my body, I was experiencing regular migraines and chronic health issues. This was a wake up and I began to enquire deeper into myself. I experimented with alternative practices, herbal and plant medicines. With an overall practice of eating in season and according to my body’s needs, I became more in tune with myself and my environment. I started listening to my body, expressing myself more with music, meditation and dance. My body became more balanced, my mind calmer and my physical issues began to shift and change and slowly disperse.
I am a singer and songwriter working on a few projects and in a duo, called HAMARTIA (listen to us on Spotify if you like). I have trained in Organic Horticulture and gardening. I have worked in various community and environmental projects in and around London. I co-run yoga, dance and whole food nutrition retreats in various locations around the world. I offer one to one consultations and group sessions on nutritional and emotional balance.
