About Me


My journey on the path of natural health and wellness began when I was 21 having ended up bed ridden for a week without the energy to lift my head or get up. I was eventually diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and became extremely sensitive to the effect of allopathic medication.

Back then I was constantly stressed, lived in the fast lane, pushed myself beyond my limits, constantly striving for perfection, not too concerned with diet but more with convenience. I look back at this illness and the tough times I went through and am grateful for the learning and the understanding that I have gained from it. I experienced the effect of depression and the side effects of anti-depressants, the effect of systemic Candida and having to cut almost everything out of my diet so my body could heal. Wanting to try and stay in control, I wanted to push on but my body wanted to rest. It was only when I stopped fighting with myself and once I realised that I had the power to change the way I thought and how I felt that I was able to turn things around and to start healing. I took responsibility for my own health.

During my illness, Reflexology was hugely beneficial offering me time for myself to just Be and helping my body on its journey back to health. In 2003, I had a feeling to just let go and that everything would be alright. I resigned from my job, not knowing what I was going to do but knew that I needed a break from corporate life. I felt a weight come off my shoulders and felt totally at peace.

As soon as I let go and trusted my life fell into place, I met my husband and decided that I needed to study Reflexology so that I could help others. I am truly passionate about Reflexology and the benefits that it offers. I started a 2 year diploma in South Africa in Reflexology and Meridian Therapy with Inge Dougans in 2004 and qualified at the end of 2005 Cum Laude (top 3) and started my practise straight away. Using the Chinese Meridians and Elements as an assessment tool is invaluable in getting to the cause of the imbalance, the symptoms are merely warning signals that the body is out of balance.

I love seeing the changes in my clients as their symptoms improve or disappear altogether. I feel privileged to be able to play a part in their journey towards health and happiness. Although I work with all conditions I do have a special interest and passion in working with infertility, pregnancy, labour, babies and children. I am an advocate for holistic birthing having had two water births, one of which was a home birth. Having a home birth was the most amazing experience of my life.

In 2008 I studied Reiki energy healing as well as Shiatsu head, neck and shoulder massage, which is a Japanese massage working the meridians and acupressure points done while sitting in a chair. I intend to study Naturopathy in the near future and am also a strong believer in Homeopathy, which is all I use to treat my family.

I believe in a holistic approach and looking at the whole picture (body, mind, emotions, spirit) to ascertain where the weak areas are and then making recommendations to help strengthen those areas. I also use my intuition to guide me in order to give the best possible treatment.
