I have been on a journey of self-discovery since I can remember. My initial training is in fine art and theatre and along my journey of self-exploration and creative expression, I have been working as a holistic therapist and meditation teacher since 2001 in Bulgaria, India, France, and the UK.
My fascination with the wisdom of the body has led me into training in various body-based practices: dance, yoga, active meditations, bioenergetics, various massage styles.
In my work as a therapist, I have discovered that trusting the felt sense of the body, our ability to feel, explore and stay connected to ourselves can be a powerful helper in resolving issues, make decisions and feel safe and grounded in our lives.
Playful creativity: Creativity is our essence, although it is often deeply buried or feared. Creative expression can be a wonderful way to express meanings and feelings that just don't fit into words. It can be a great opportunity to release tension and gain insights from symbolic images that emerge from our inner world.
Although often associated with children counselling art and play can be a powerful healing tool for adults too.
Since the birth of my son, I started learning about the womb and the lower belly. Inspired by my own journey through pregnancy and motherhood, I have focused my work around supporting women with their fertility journey; both during pregnancy as a doula, and postnatally.
I offer women circles and abdominal massage and self-massage as a powerful tool for women to gain a better understanding and connection to themselves and their feminine power.
Talking and creative expression could be helpful when overcoming traumatic experiences linked to the womb. (abuse, pregnancy loss, fibroids, child loss, irregular periods, infertility, endometriosis and other conditions linked to pelvic congestion)
