About

 

Welcome,

My intention with An Olive Branch is to help lead the body back into balance and good health.  

I believe that the body has an incredible capacity to heal given the right environment. This involves looking at the whole picture: the mental, emotional and physical terrain. 

The Greek Philosopher Socrates acknowledged some 2,000 years ago that you cannot separate the mind from the body. The mind and its emotions profoundly interact with the body’s nervous system, hormonal system and immune system. Each does not live in isolation. 

If we are to cope with the stresses of modern living and the significant increase in depression and anxiety we need to acknowledge the part that stress plays in dis-ease only then can we move forward and heal. 

I believe there is much we can do.

My interest in Complementary Medicine began after I was diagnosed with Glandular Fever and Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome aged 19.

I discovered first hand the benefits of Reflexology, Homeopathy and Meditation and wanted to train so that I could help other people who were suffering from dis-ease return to health.

I specialise in working with people of all ages suffering with anxiety and the effects of stress.

 

Training

I  trained under the renowned Danish therapist Lone Sorenson at the International Institute of Facial and Foot Reflexology. 

I then went on to study Maternity Reflexology and Indian Head Massage.   

Following my training I worked for several years in a Complementary Health Clinic in Barcelona working with people of all ages with a wide range of health problems.

HOMEOPATHY

I returned to England where I trained for four years with the British School of Homeopathy in Exeter.

MINDFULNESS

I completed my Mindfulness Teacher Training at the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at Bangor University in Wales and with the Mindfulness in Schools Project in London.
