I previously spent 24 years working as a Key Accounts Manager for a Children's publisher. I think I can probably recite We're Going on a Bear Hunt in my sleep! During that time I realised the impact of stress and a poor diet on all aspects of my mind and body. As an overweight, chocoholic, insomniac who ate chocolate digestives while vacuumed the house at 2am, I decided the time had come to seriously look at my life and overall health!
When I decided to change career, I wanted to take a more natural approach to nutrition, so studied with the Nutritional Healing Foundation. The course looked at the body as a whole and all the different reasons and causes that influence how we feel and how we cope with all of life's ups and downs.
To further my knowledge of the way our minds operate, I studied Neuro Linguistic Programming to become a Master Practitioner. This enabled me to learn how to work with my mind and thoughts rather than perpetually fighting with them.
Everything we do or don't do is connected to our thoughts and emotions, so by studying NLP and nutrition, I have gained a wide knowledge of a variety of issues and techniques, to enable me to help people with life or health issues.
