Here’s just a bit about my background…
I am creative and a natural storyteller. I love working with people, have a quirky sense of humour and above all I care that ‘what I do’ works for my clients and that they receive a high quality service.
I have had a varied career in nursing; latterly as a University lecturer and Nurse Practitioner & non-medical prescriber. I have spoken at international conferences in the UK and the USA and had articles published in nursing journals. I am used to working with clients to deadlines whilst delivering a high quality service.
I was a founding director of a very successful not-for-profit Social Enterprise. Being a company director and sub-contractor to the NHS gave me an amazing insight into running a business. The company was highly regarded. We achieved CQC ‘Outstanding’ and were held as a role model to other providers in the sector.
I am a Shamanic practitioner; I have led ceremonies that are embedded in the old ways, full of spirituality, ritual and joy. As a healer, I am also a qualified Reiki Master.
I am a trained, certified Family and Funeral Celebrant and member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants.
As someone with ‘hidden’ disabilities, I am passionate about inclusivity; equity of access, removal of barriers and discrimination for people with disabilities, their families and friends.
