When I look back I have always taught in some way. I would teach my fellow dance students dances for competitions when I was a kid, then dance classes at my dance school as a young adult and then aerobics classes all through my twenties. I discovered my love for yoga in my thirties and then started teaching yoga in 2006. So, its fair to say that I love to teach.
As well as teaching, I also love to learn. As I have always been interested in health and the mind/body connection I have trained in massage, reflexology, hypnotherapy and hypnobirthing. I have been a hypnotherapist and hypnobirthing teacher since 2006. I also love to help people and I have helped so many people to achieve goals, overcome obstacles and have great births over the years.
When I hit forty I wanted another challenge so I did a degree in Midwifery at Greenwich University for three years and then I worked as a midwife for a year. I did this whilst still teaching yoga, hypnobirthing and having hypnotherapy clients. Midwifery was a great experience but it never felt like my calling. I went back to my true passion of helping people with hypnobirthing, hypnotherapy and yoga with a different perspective. I could see the difference in labouring women so clearly – the women who had prepared mentally and women who hadn’t. So, here I am – doing what I love, and loving what I do.
