I qualified as a practitioner of Meridian Therapies in the UK in June 2000 and as a Shiatsu therapist at the Thalamus School for Shiatsu and Acupressure, Germany, in 1993. I have facilitated seminars for relaxations, combining Gestalt Therapy, Mandala Drawing, Reflexology and Counselling. Also I have studies various therapies within the context of Special Education and worked with children and young people (3-18 years) experiencing mental, physical and emotional problems. At the Frostig Institute, Los Angeles, I specialised in Behavioural Therapy for children with learning disabilities. Since the 1980s, I have worked with children and adults.
My husband and I moved to the Isle of Skye in 1995, where I gave birth to our son.
Shiatsu is an important element in my own life and work in terms of diagnosing and helping me focus on my own energy. This stimulates self-healing, relaxation, and my ability to focus more clearly.
