My Journey

My passion for helping people to live healthier, happier lives began over 20 years ago when I stumbled upon Pilates, a postural based exercise system that focuses on re-balancing the body - it all made such perfect sense to me.  I trained in Matwork with Body Control Pilates (where they have a superb reputation for teacher training) and I trained on Reformer with Stott in Toronto, Canada, going on to do many specialised course in low back pain, muscle activation, and everything to do with the Mind, Body and Soul.

It was dealing with so many clients with chronic pain that led me to delve deeper into the mind body connection, and how to use this knowledge to get clients out of chronic pain. Over the years I have researched and learnt far more about the mind/body connection and the massive impact that our beliefs and thoughts have on both our mental and physical well-being.

My interest in brain science, the mind, mindset just grew exponentially and I immersed myself with learning how I could help people to live to their true potential, to live a life less ordinary, and so 'Explore Expand Engage - Live a life less Ordinary' was born.

I'm an Advanced Rapid Transformational Therapy practitioner (I trained with Marisa Peer, creator of Rapid Transformational Therapy), a Mindscape Practitioner and a Soul Realignment Practitioner. I love using these tools, together with my training as a Master Mindset Coach, to change people's lives in the most amazing way.

I run courses and hold workshops in Newark, and UK-wide; I’ve coached entrepreneurs, spoken at various business groups and have worked with many individuals on anxiety, business clarity, confidence, life purpose, panic attacks and addictions. Language, and in particular the written word, is also a passion of mine, and I have written many articles for both newspapers and magazines. I also write a weekly blog and have now completed my first book, “Explore Expand Engage - Live a Life less Ordinary”.

The wonderful aspect to all this learning was that I was applying this to my life and it was literally transforming in front of my eyes. Within three years, I had gone from running Pilates classes at village halls to opening Balance, my own Pilates and Wellbeing studio in Newark, and having the support of three teachers working at my studio. I now have my own private practice using RTT and Soul Realignment, helping others to change their lives and live a life less ordinary. I am also a published author, public speaker and co-host Flourish, our life-changing retreats in Corsica.

I absolutely love the work I do and I know that I am bringing Real Change to Real People, it has worked so brilliantly for me and I know it will work for you too.
