Mental health month.
It's okay not to be okay sometimes
It’s okay not to be okay sometimes.
It is mental health awareness month and after the last year trying to live through a pandemic, we are more aware than ever.
So, what I am saying is that it is sometimes okay not to be okay, just be still, accept, release and when your ready move on.
Sometimes all it takes is a good night’s sleep, sometimes it takes a bit longer, sometimes it is a lifelong challenge to feel okay.
Usually everything has its time and becomes a memory at some point, but it feels a long time when you are in it feeling not okay.
Sometimes it's because you are living or working in the wrong place, in relationships with the wrong people, living a life that no longer serves you and does not bring you happiness.
Sometimes you lose someone or something that you love, and you go through your personal journey of bereavement and it hurts like hell, in time I promise you will feel lighter and you begin to heal and feel okay again.
Sometimes our hormones turn us into mad crazy women, we shout, scream, cry, overreact and feel as if we have no control even at moments when we should be happy. It’s okay not to be okay it will pass.
Sometimes long dark winters makes us feel sad, it's okay it will pass.
Sometimes sunshine, friends, music, walking, running, good nutrition & supplements helps us feel okay and this is all we need, but sometimes our brains need chemicals to rebalance and need medication to and this is okay.
Sometimes you need to let go of judgements, resentment, worries and all the gremlins that are holding you back from finding your real authentic self and happiness.
Always love yourself, always remember when saying no to others you are saying yes to yourself, never compare yourself to others, follow your hearts desire & souls’ journey and on your life’s, journey remember sometimes it’s okay not to be okay.

often get asked about how I became a holistic & massage therapist, teacher and Holistic life coach ….

I often get asked about how I became a holistic & massage therapist, teacher and Holistic life coach ….
in 2003 my dad died of cancer and this changed my world, it made me look at my life and realise that life is short, and I was not happy.
Within the next year, I got divorced and became a single mom of three young children, dogs, cats and even a horse.
I went back to work full time, teaching hairdressing, which was really hard, as although I loved teaching and going to work every-day, it was really hard and stressful with three young children to look after, love and nurture, dogs to walk, cats to feed and a horse to look after and manage. (sadly, I had to sell my beautiful horse Bobby)
Some days when I got to work, I realised that I hadn’t even had time to look at what I was wearing that day! To the point where my manager said I was inappropriately dressed as I wore leggings, and my top wasn’t as long as I thought! To be honest I didn’t have any time to do more than just laugh it off in the staffroom, I don’t think anyone would have really understood what it took to get to work that day if I had tried to explain. Getting three children delivered to nursery or at a friends to wait for the school bus, dogs walked, everyone dressed and fed by 7.30 am was a hell of an achievement every day.
But they were not happy that uniforms were soon introduced as mandatory, whoops!
One day a friend turned round to me and said I needed Reiki, I had not really heard much about what Reiki was, but I felt so stressed, I would try anything.
This began a new Story in my life, from receiving that first Reiki treatment I was totally hooked I wanted to learn this for myself. I felt so different, calmer, more in control and the best bit was my heart began to heal and feel lighter.
Reiki had a huge impact on my life and my children’s lives, it clarified my values and what was important in our lives and helped me live life in the best way I could with love and positivity.
I trained in Reiki and received my attunements and I signed up for a holistic life coaching course as I wanted to learn more about the holistic way of life, make changes in my life and I didn't know where to begin.
Holistic life coaching showed me the way step by step, and after a year of doing the course, I became qualified as a holistic life coach and I also had a new beginning with a clear path of where I was going in life, where my new journey, my Story was directed to.
I left teaching full time and became self-employed working as a Reiki and holistic therapist, I also did some mobile hairdressing to keep food on the table while I built up my business.
I knew this wasn't going to be an easy journey, but I needed to create a new Balance in my life and my children's life, be able to go to sports days at school and be a mum again, no longer having child minders after school until I got home, a time to focus on my family.
Once I began my new journey, my life started to fall into place, I met my new man, had another baby (as if three wasn’t enough !!) got premises for my first holistic therapy centre at Brougham Hall and kept learning, developing and always growing.
Which has led me to where I am now in my journey, I work in the most beautiful, friendliest place in Penrith called Adlib full of the most amazing women. I work here full time as a holistic and massage therapist and teach in my own Training Academy.
All my courses are accredited by the International practitioners of holistic medicine and I am so immensely proud of this achievement of experience and knowledge.
My newest development in my work is women’s health and holistic well-being coaching and courses for personal and professional journeys, the difference and transformation I am seeing in women’s lives from working with me on this fills me with so much joy and a great feeling of achievement.
My last part of the journey on where I am now is organising a holistic and spiritual well being festival at the George Hotel on the 17th July 2021. This was originally planned for March last year but got postponed due to the Covid pandemic. Fingers crossed all goes ahead now as planned and we have an amazing day.

Blog on Aromatherapy oils
Our fifth sense is smell, smell links you to memories and also emotions.
I use aromatherapy oils every-day in my therapy work and, in my home, I use lavender oil for relaxation and help sleepless nights, rose oil for emotional balance and to feel calm, geranium oil for hormonal teenagers and lemon oil to lift my mood.
True essential oils are obtained through distillation (steam/and or water) or cold presses.
Each oil has its own unique essence and inhaling the oils aroma stimulates a part of the brain that plays a role in emotions, behaviours, sense of smell and long -term memory.
Essential oils can be inhaled or diluted and applied to the skin.
There are 90 types of essential oils, each with its own unique smell and potential health benefits.
I personally feel you are attracted to which ever smell you need and repulsed by smells that you don’t.
I use aromatherapy oil mixes for my massage and holistic therapies to encourage relaxation and stress reduction, and to improve well-being.
Here are some of the oils listed below and how they are used.
Peppermint oil to boost energy and aids digestion, memory, stimulates you, can help reduce fatigue and chocolate cravings.
Lavender oil relieves stress can help with sleep, lower blood pressure, heart rate,
Rose oil Improves moods and reduce anxiety.
Chamomile oil improves mood and relaxation, helps sleep.
Sandalwood oil Calms nerves and helps with focus.
Bergamot oils Reduces stress, improves skin conditions like eczema.
Ylang ylang oil treats headaches, nausea and skin condition, soothes inflammation.
Tea Tree oil fights infection and boosts immunity.
Jasmine oil can help with depression, childbirth and libido.
Lemon oil can aid digestion, mood, headaches and may help with kidney problems, nausea & vomiting, ease anxiety and stress.
Clary sage oil may reduce blood pressure, help with memory and attention.
Orange oil may decrease anxiety.
Rosemary oil can help enhance brain power, may boost energy and reduce fatigue.
Eucalyptus oil combats congestion promotes mental clarity and soothe headaches.

Life as a massage & holistic therapist.
I am so sad today, yesterday the latest government announcement said I can't fully open to all my clients until April 8th.
I am grateful I'm still able to help a few clients with Reiki up until then but I miss my normal life. Going into Adlib everyday and catching with the most beautiful women I know, seeing my lovely clients and hearing their stories, seeing their new baby pictures, giving them time to breathe, chill, relax, download, release and helping them feel so much better than they did, calmer, happier & relaxed.
I love what I do !! Roll on April xx

Spiritual therapy experience.
I can honestly say that Reiki therapy changed my life, Reiki guides you on your journey and path to spiritual development. When you open your mind to trying something new and trying this beautiful therapy called Reiki. you realise it isn't actually weird this energy thing, this energy thing is actually our life vibration.
Our energies get low, blocked, out of balance and Reiki helps lift our energy & vibration, unblocks and rebalances. Also something magical happens when your spiritual chakras become lifted and energised , you become open to new experiences with your inner sight and intuition.
Reiki accredited to NOS
Reiki accredited to NOS CNHC
Reiki is recognised as a medical/ health service and service related to mental health which allows you to be able to offer your services during the restrictions of the pandemic if you are registered with the CNHC .
You must only provide the therapies you are registered for, on a one-to-one basis to clients, for an identified mental or physical health condition or injury that is causing them pain or having an adverse impact on their mobility or their quality of life.
You must be able to evidence that your therapeutic intervention is supporting your client with their condition. You can do this by recording their health condition and giving a clear rationale in your client's care record for the treatment that you are providing.
This is an amazing development for all Reiki practitioners who feel proud of the valued therapy they offer and work to a high national occupational standard at all times.
If you would like to become accredited with the CNHC and need help, reach out to me and I can help you .
I am a Reiki master teacher and work as an assessor for the educational department in the Reiki Federation.

Discover your passion for Holistic therapies
A lot of Holistic therapists specialise and qualify in one therapy, others wish to reach to a wider client base learning other therapies that link to and add to therapies
Where do you begin?
Discover your passion within Holistic therapies, I began my journey into Holistic's with Reiki therapy which helped me understand and integrate with energies, I can feel the difference of receiving a therapy experience from someone who is attuned to Reiki and works within the world of energies as it creates a deeper level of work. I loved the Holistic understanding of each and every bodies unique world and qualified as a Holistic Life Coach and progressed to learn as many holistic and massage therapies as I could, as each one I learned linked to the next to further my knowledge and experience to help my clients.
If you are interested and passionate in learning energy work and healing start with Reiki.
If you are wanting to learn hands on practical therapies as in massage,
Indian head massage is a good place to begin, as you start your journey of learning massage techniques and the power of touch. Indian head massage is a nice short course to build your confidence and help you on your way to other massage courses.
Indian face massage follows on beautifully from the Indian head massage course and you can easily add to your treatment list with learning Hopi Candle therapy to cover the whole head area.
Holistic massage is an amazing beautiful full body massage, you need to commit to a lot of work for this course, but you will be rewarded with 'so much' that it is well worth the hard work.
Reflexology is a different unique massage technique using mostly your thumbs in a caterpillar movement across the reflex points of your feet. I teach this as a Holistic therapy for a whole-body experience and my clients love it! Reflexology is often learned as a therapists one therapy to specialise in, but many learn this amazing therapy to add to their existing therapy list. Reflexology is a very popular therapy with my clients at the moment.
