Born in 1965 my last corporate role was as a Learning and Development Consultant with a high street bank.
After working my way through a personal crisis in 2001, I entered into a deep process of healing with talking therapy, which lasted for three and a half years, during which time a space for spiritual awareness kicked in. I started asking the questions; Why am I here? Who am I? What is my purpose? What happens when I die?
I embarked on a quest to know myself further. I retrained in remedial and manipulative massage, as a couple counsellor with Relate, and also as a Reiki & EFT practitioner. I also trained in Tantra, NVC (Non-violent Communication) and have experienced living in community. I have a dedicated daily meditation practice called Heartfulness which I have been enjoying since 2010.
I started adventuring Holotropic states in 2009 with Grof Transpersonal Training (GTT) and from that first experience I was hooked. It was the start of an amazing journey of deeply knowing myself with like-minded others in a very safe space. Early on I decided I would embark on the Grof training programme and I am honoured to have been trained by Stan Grof and Tav Sparks and other facilitators that make up the teaching team.
I now manage Trossachs Tryst, a retreat centre in the heart of Scotland, where I offer Holotropic Breathwork through “Caledonian Holotropic”.
I am a member of the European Holotropic Breathwork Association and an Associate member of The Institute of Psychedelic Therapy.
I look forward to being of service.
Deep peace to you
