I am a Holistic Practitioner…
I offer a personalised service to boost wellbeing, immunity and optimise wellness goals ‘ helping you heal from inside out..
My Personal Journey
I come from a family who love food. My mum and maji (grandmother) inspired my curiosity in food and my love of food. There were 9 of us in my family and I saw how creatively and effortlessly they catered for everyone’s needs using the same ingredients (there were often my cousins, (thayaji /thayji and Chachaji’schi’s ) too and our home buzzed with as many as 19 of us ! so we spent a lot of time eating!)
My heritage food wisdom is what I return to for my own healing and my vast insight and training supports the people who come to work with me.
My Heritage and Love of Ayurveda Principles
It’s my heritage and cultural roots which gave me the underpinning ayurvedic principles which I have grown up thanks to my mathaji/mummiji -these include honouring our self care though good biodynamic food;
Healing food promotes Shodhan, which is the elimination of ama and these were the principles that were shared with me as I grew up everyday. There are specific ayurvedic herbs and seeds formulas which I share as part of my work which can include a comforting chai (tea) or spice blend for dishes to support the ‘Ama’ / panchakarma to offer in my seasonal cleanses just as I given these since my childhood.
I am currently training to become a licenced Homeopath. This is a system of energetic medicine that has roots in India aswell as Europe. I am using this system to deepen my offer for clients and help them heal unresolved mental and emotional issues that have an impact on people’s lives.
I have used homeopathy myself for over 30 years and now I will become a fully licenced homeopath by the autumn of 2021 which I am very exciting about. I take referrals and am fully insured to practice as a student homeopath. If this interests you, please contact me.
I intuitive healing work also uses my inner voice. I help clients change this and honour the practice of self care. I also offer these in my listening circles.
My approach is holistic and supportive for all the people who come to work with me. I support them to learn and grow new self care strategies and offer food that is healing and sustainable for future wellbeing goals.
The crystal is a neutral object whose inner structure exhibits a crystalline state of perfection and balance. When it is precisely cut to the proper geometric form and when the human mind enters into relationship with its structural perfection in the vibration of love, the crystal emits a vibration which extends and amplifies the power and grasp of the user’s mind. Imaged thought intent is amplified.
My Qualification and Training

My love of whole food, my way of life empowers others to understand the many way they can be supported to heal from inside out.
I understand about biodynamic foods, their health benefits of eating seasonally and how to understand the intricate relationship between the digestive system, lungs, heart and focus on organ support as this is the vital relationship food and minerals play on our major organs. I use the moon connection which is an important contributor to maintaining wellbeing using the oush and pull of its influence. I use my knowledge and training of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) principles for optimising organ support. I now add Homeopathy as this offers a lot of ways to help us heal from inside out and I am excited to be training and offer this therapy alongside my other therapies – a system I have used for 30 years plus.
