HELLO. I’m Charlotte Boyd, I created Firm Feet® to offer heart centred practices to help balance everyday mental wellbeing, using sound and movement.
I create weekly Dance in the dark® audio movement meditation sessions HERE. I offer 1:1 Sound therapy using my voice and instruments to renew and restore the mind and body HERE I am keen to use my knowledge and experiences as a way of helping others.
From my very early years I had complex mental health issues that caused me to have complicated and unhealthy eating habits, a negative relationship with my body and disordered eating. When I reached my twenties I was experiencing regular migraines, no menstrual cycle and chronic health conditions. This was my wake up call and I began to enquire deeper. I experimented with alternative practices, herbal and plant medicines. I started to understand myself better with the learning of Macrobiotic healing arts: a blend of Taoist methodology, Traditional Chinese medicine healing system; living and eating in rhythm with your body. I became more in tune with myself and my environment. I started listening to my body, expressing myself more with music and dance. My body became more balanced, my mind calmer and my physical issues began to shift, change and slowly disperse.
I’m a singer and songwriter and I am currently embarking on the exciting project of writing and recording my solo album to be released on Bandcamp in spring 2021.
