The long blurble!
Taadaaah I'm the only Celebrate Living Therapist in the whole world!
I've spent the past ten years working as a Nutritional Therapist, running my own practice, as well as working as part of a team of Integrative Functional Medicine Practitioners (2014-2017), communing with people from all walks of life, with a whole range of cultures, ages, unique dietary requirements and human wonderfulness!
I am an MSc Research Supervisor and teach Lifestyle Medicine to students undertaking their MSc in Personalised Nutrition.
Along with being a Life-Affirming Movement and Meditation Teacher! I love sharing practices to celebrate the joy and bliss (and aches and pains!) of feeling into these earthly bodies we are privileged to reside in ... even when things seem tough or we feel bedraggled!
After delving into Death Training (which seemed like a good idea at the time!) I left quite mind-blown and not seeing things ... I mean life ... in the same way! Hahaha yes well those stories are for another day!
Prior to these shenanigans and whilst raising a family, I ran community MEND groups for children and families wishing to optimise their health, fitness and self-esteem. Tended an organic kitchen and garden in a children's nursery, worked as a nursery assistant supporting children with special needs, ran my own quad biking business (for children 6-11 years old), and made wedding and celebratory cakes. As a family we fostered children (from birth to 16 years) for just over five years, renovated an old tumbledown house, took our children back-packing around the world for a year (we fancied sleeping in jungles and dancing through Mexico) and a whole host of other random ventures!
Coming back to now ... with "The Great Awakenings of 2020" I decided to close my nutrition-based business and follow the urge to share ways in which we can ""Celebrate Living" ~ partly through self-care, resilience and pleasure practices (see online consults, workshops & movement and meditation sessions) and also to really face our vulnerability and fear of Death!
I'm no expert, having not physically died in this body yet, however, am willing to face the fear, walk into the dark forests of the soul and hold the space for others to do the same. It really is only by seeing how precious this life is, our days are, and what has meaning to us, that we (I feel) can truly know our ladder (so to speak) is leaning against the right wall!
On a personal note ... I'm also an Almond, Fig and Saffron Farmer living off-grid in a tiny cottage, and might be found under a tree, in the veggie patch, painting mysterious maps, singing mantras and diddly's, dancing under the stars, making crystal waters/flower teas or eating gooey cake (gluten and dairy free!) .... and my neighbours Butternut Squash Soup!.
I fully appreciate, honour and value science and evidence based practice, but also wholeheartedly and humbly honour the unseen wonders, awe and utterly unknown (yet!) aspects of the Cosmos and Universe.
If you're interested in exploring ways to better "Celebrate Living" together then I'd love to hear from you.
I'm a Proudly Anti-social (media) type who also supports "The Slow Movement" and hugely welcome no-rush emails!
