I have always been involved with Vitalism from an early age, searching for meaning and for experience. I started in the martial art discipline of Shotokan Karate, but later found Tai Chi with a marvelous teacher called Richard Druitt. I moved to London in 1988 and carried on with an inspirational teacher called Osman Philips and met some of my long-term friends. Whilst in London I did some lengthy work on myself in the Jungian tradition and decided to study a healing art. As Tai Chi was always about “chi” or energy I decided to study Homeopathy which has become a major part of my life. I moved to Cornwall in 1999 and studied at the School of Homeopathy under the expert tutelage of Misha Norland graduating in 2003, the year my daughter was born. I have been practising Homeopathy ever since and am a Registered Member of the Society of Homeopaths.  I am also a Naturopathic Nutrition Advisor  newly qualified 2013. I am now accredited as an Advanced Grade Registered Full Instructor with the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain.

My personal viewpoint as a therapist and as a person who practices Tai Chi, is that we are all unique individuals with unique stories. I am able to hear those stories without judging and help someone to find their path through them. Health, for me, is our lives moving in the right direction. Here is a testimonial from a recent patient:

I often think of you and your amazing treatment. Bringing me into my body was the hardest, most difficult thing I have ever experienced! Even though I feel everything much deeper, harder, with more difficulty, I still think it was the right thing to do.I have learned how to become mindful and experience the now. I will never forget your kindness and hope to come back for a top up soon. 

I am married with two wonderful children who inspire me every day with their vitality. Living in Cornwall I am also inspired by nature and by the sea. I love walking, bird watching and surfing. The following I have found inspirational recently, it’s a Zen story:

“Suzuki Roshi, I’ve been listening to your lectures for years,” a student said during the question and answer time following a lecture, “but I just don’t understand. Could you just please put it in a nutshell? Can you reduce Buddhism to one phrase?”

Everyone laughed. Suzuki laughed.

“Everything changes,” he said. Then he asked for another question.
