More about Michelle….
With a background in holistic therapies, meditation, I offer sessions to meet you where you are at. If you just need space for yourself to relax and take time out of your busy schedule, this is graciously accommodated with holistic therapies including aromatherapy, massage and energywork. If you want to work at a deeper level and unlock your full potential, one to one body listening/yoga nidra sessions can help by working through blocks and patterns that hold you back.
Mind, body and spirit are inter-connected and all are of vital importance for optimum well-being. Holistic therapy takes into consideration the balance between all three in the pursuit of health, happiness and harmony. I offer sessions to guide you back to your own innate wisdom and bring focus where it is needed. Sessions aim to give you tools and techniques to move into your life with positivity, courage and clarity . Nobody needs to go through difficult times alone and it is my joy is to offer support to others to help them regain confidence and equilibrium during such times.
Trained in Sharon Wheeler’s ScarWork therapy, I have been working with many people for different scar treatments including joint replacements, surgery scars etc. A lot of focus has been with women who have been through the trauma of mastectomy and these sessions bring about not only increased mobility and improved appearance, but maybe more importantly, a sense of integration on all levels of being.
Whatever your session involves, you will leave feeling nurtured, heard, positive and relaxed.
I have a warm and empathetic nature and my training and personal life experience has given me an intuitive insight into what is needed and how to help you access your inner resources, or simply to let go and relax.
I started my career in humanitarian aid with the UK Government for whom I worked for fifteen years. I moved to the Ananda yoga and meditation guest retreat centre in 2001 where I lived for two years and then lived independently in Italy until 2014 when I moved back to England. I co-owned an association in Italy dedicated to therapy, spirituality and well-being and ran one to one sessions, groups and workshops. My time in Italy had a deep impact on my life and personal growth and has given me an understanding and appreciation of many cultures experienced through working and living with people from different nationalities. I gained a solid meditation base and spiritual practice from living at Ananda and developed a love of nature through working so close to the earth. I cultivated my own range of essential oils and herbal products which I continue to make here in England and which bring a unique and personal touch to my therapy sessions.
I am a qualified aromatherapist, massage therapist and Reiki practitioner, and am qualified in Scarwork, Fascial Unwinding and Energy body work and Bach Flower Therapy. A qualified meditation and yoga nidra teacher, I offer groups and workshops to adults and teenagers on this much needed practice for modern life.
I trained in Italy with Alexandra Pope of Red School UK in women’s coaching and menstrual and menopause awareness and offer this amazing tool to women in one to one sessions which can be a life-changing experience.
