I am originally from Bavaria, where I started my journey, and I arrived in the UK 1996. I worked until 2004 in management roles. In 2005 I changed my career from being a full-on business woman to a complementary therapist.
My first qualification was the Dr Bach Flower Remedies Practitioner. I have been practising with the Bach Flower Remedies for almost 20 years. After this I studied at Kendal college for four years, qualifying in Beauty Level 3, Indian Head Massage, Holistic Therapies, Advanced Reflexology, Remedial Massage, Sports Therapy Massage, Clinical Aromatherapy, and Stress Management. In my final two years at Kendal College I gained a distinction in the Foundation Degree in Health and Social Care (Holistic Therapies). I then went to Salford University and graduated (Bachelor of Science) 2009 in Integrated Therapies - Complementary Therapies with a First Class Degree. In addition to the fore-mentioned qualifications, I am a certified Hypnotherapist and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) practitioner. I am also a EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) practitioner, a Reiki Master and teacher. I have studied the foundation year in Transactional Analysis at Leeds Psychotherapy Training Institute and I have taken part in various workshops in this field. Furthermore, I am a MFN (Mindfulness) teacher focusing on enhanced resilience. I develop my skills and knowledge through constant continuous professional development. In addition I am a teacher in adult education and teach complementary therapy courses and workshops.
My philosophy is that people's mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects are all interconnected. An imbalance between these aspects will lead to psychological or physical health issues. I believe that everyone has the potential within to achieve a happier and healthier life. I am passionate about using my skills to help people to unlock this potential.
I am an intuitive and caring therapist who brings together theory and practice from a wide range of therapy approaches and clinical experience to help clients to achieve and maintain holistic health. I believe that everyone is a unique expression of life. And because of that ALL therapy sessions at the Holistic Health Clinic are tailored to suit the individual's need.
I work with clients of all ages including children. I have gathered much experience in working with children and challenging young people in residential settings since 2006. I also have taken part in various youth projects.
