I have been a holistic therapist for 20 years. I am the only therapist I know who hasn't had come to this work as a career change later in life.
I knew from an early age that I wanted to do work I love so I would never have to work a day in my life!
I did go the traditional route and studied Biology, Sociology and Irish in Maynooth University.
By my 2nd year age 19 I knew it wasn't for me so I switched courses and studied Sports Therapy, I loved it! So I continued my studies in the UK earning myself a Degree BSc Sports Therapy.
I returned home to Ireland age 22 & set up my practice in my spare room. I spent my days treating injuries, standing on the sidelines of pitches with my sponge and loving it!
Unfortunately I had a back injury from a car crash years before that would limit my ability to perform my work to it's fullest. So I turned to acupuncture and osteopathy for treatment.
In 2006 I decided that I would train as an acupuncturist to assist me with my work. Little did I know that doors it would open to supporting clients way beyond injurys and pain and open my mind to things that were beyond my normal until then.
I have had busy practice over the years and have added to my skills with many skills such as remedial massage therapy, reiki, herbalism, flower essence therapy, aromatherapy
The therapies I offer you, I have used in my personal life over the years such as pregnancy, labour, treating my children & the relapse of a herniated disc in 2013, healing from major surgery in 2019 & emotional and spiritual issues such as grief & anxiety.
I have made drastic changes in my lifestyle as a result of my trainings. I know first hand how these therapies can support you in your life. I believe that when we learn to take small steps daily towards our own health we can create huge shifts in our health and wellbeing.
I have my fair share of challenges & I have been lucky enough to have the support of holistic therapists and the medical profession to help me through.
I have used herbal medicine, acupuncture and flower essences extensively in my own life.
My path has led me to study with professors of chinese medicine, traditional herbalists, shaman & healers.
I have an "all rounder" knowledge of western, eastern & ancient practices of medicine. I bring everything I have learned to our sessions with the aim of bringing you back to harmony in your body and your life.
Every session is tailored to what you need right now in your life, that might be one of the therapies I offer or a blend of many.
My only request is you come to your session with an open heart, an open mind and a willingness to change, the rest will take care of itself.
My practice is a safe space for all genders & is LGBTQ+ friendly.
My practice is built on my beliefs in equality for all, there will be no discrimination.
