I am passionate about women’s health and have been studying this field for many years using a multi-disciplinary approach.
I enjoy using my clinical skills side by side with an empathetic and spiritual approach to offer a truly holistic experience for my patients, students and clients. My aim is to support, educate, and empower women who wish to reconnect to their vitality, their bodies and feminine wisdom. I also believe we are stronger together and foster community by organising monthly Women’s circles.

About me: I have known from a very young age that I wanted to be a therapist and have always been fascinated by the body’s ability to heal. I was introduced to yoga in my early twenties which provided me with an amazing tool to heal and know myself as a young woman. After getting my education in massage and yoga, I spent my twenties travelling the world and working at luxury hotels and on yachts. Eventually I felt like I needed to gain a deeper understanding of the body and moved to England to get my education in osteopathy. These four years of study were transformational and I emerged from this time with a completely different understanding of the body’s own intelligence and innate ability to rebalance itself. I’ve always considered myself as an instrument, a fulcrum which can be used by my patients and students to find health within themselves.
After the birth of my first child I naturally gravitated towards perinatal yoga and osteopathy and have become truly passionate about supporting women through their transition to motherhood. I have become specialised in prenatal and postnatal yoga and have educated myself as a doula to have even more tools to help women prepare for and recover from birth. Giving birth is such a life changing event that it has made me an advocate for a respectful, empowering, and gentle birth. My highest intention for my clients is to support, nurture and educate each one of them so that they can access their inner power and welcome this new chapter of their lives with grace and confidence.
