 A feeling of deep gratefulness has been filling my heart since the retreat day last Saturday, for all the people that were present on the day and to those who helped facilitate along the way. It was more than I had even imagined. Here are some quotes from feedback we have received ~

"What to say! It was a wonderful experience and I thoroughly enjoyed the time together. Can't wait to join you again, you got everything right. Thank you so much."

'I feel so chilled - well done on a lovely day."

"The day was really wonderful and I am grateful to you all, you do such incredible work."

"Thank you so much for today, it was really lovely and much needed."

"Just wanted to send you all a massive thank you for such a fantastic day. It was absolutely perfect and just what I needed, a relaxed, enjoyable day in beautiful surroundings with lovely people. The food was amazing and all the treatments were fantastic."

Relax ~ Renew ~ Arise

Counting down the last few days until our 
Relax ~ Renew ~ Arise ~ Transformational Healing Day 
in Woodbury Salterton this Saturday.

Final preparations are taking place. And we are fully booked!

Jeff Foster

I love this guy. There is something about the way he writes that feels like how I have experienced Amanae.


More than anything, we long to be seen.
To be held in a safe, non judgemental, all-accepting presence, and be seen through loving eyes.

And being seen is what we fear most.
More than death, we fear intimacy's piercing gaze. 
And yearn for it all the same.

It takes such courage to show yourself!
To take off your mask, when you look and feel your worst to take off your mask (the one that was suffocating you anyway) and to say "Look. Look. Here I am, world". To let yourself be seen before you're ready.
When you feel the most rotten, the most dirty, the most wretched and unlovable, the most unevolved, the most boring, the most confused and lonely and broken and sad and angry and hurt, let yourself be seen there.
There in that sore, shameful place.
Let light in.
Come out of hiding and invite someone into your 'private' world.
Let them witness the real authentic you.
Before that pitiful defence called 'personality'. Say "Look. Look, friend. Here I am". Take the risk of being loved!"  ~ Jeff Foster


A Retreat Day

On the 10th March myself and three other therapists are holding a retreat day in Woodbury, Devon, Uk. 

It will be an opportunity for you to retreat from the outside world for a day to focus your attention inward to transform or release, to rest and recover, to take a break from doing and to allow yourself to be.

There will be a focus on relaxing back into our bodies, an awareness. I love to take the time to do this, I find it brings about a renewed sense of life, of becoming aware of the life force energies that are always there within the cells of our physical bodies. You will also be given tools and tips on how to integrate this awareness into every day living.

The day will include a gentle yoga class, a choice of two treatments and a guided relaxation. Lunch & snacks are included. The cost for the day is £95. More details to follow.

To hear about more retreat days I will be offering this year please sign up for the newsletters which I send out whenever I have news :) 

Full Moon

I was fortunate enough to take a long walk under the night sky this evening. There was a time in my life when I would walk at night several times a week. These days it is a rare event. I enjoyed every moment, the cold crisp wind on my face, feeling the earth beneath my feet, the way my legs just walk while the watcher watches. I enjoyed the space and empty roads, I enjoyed the Christmas lights in peoples windows, and all the while an awareness of the moon, shining bright in all its glory on this clear crisp night. Periodically I stopped my legs from walking and stood still, facing the moon, looking up and opening my heart to receive. What I experienced was a sense of my body being scanned, front to back and up and down, each cell responding to the energy of the moon, an awareness, connection.

These days I spend so much time looking down at my little people, it makes a refreshing change to have all of my focus in an upward direction.

I love that the first full moon of the year is tonight. Enjoy!

Renewed enthusiasm

After watching Blue Planet II last week I have renewed enthusiasm to live a life free of plastic. I decided that, starting the following day, I would no longer buy products that have any sort of plastic, themselves or in the packaging. I didn't even last until lunchtime. This is going to require some more thought and bigger changes in lifestyle than I had first envisioned. Hmmm.

November update

Wow! This year is turning out to be one of the most incredible for me in this lifetime. There is a sense of constant unfolding within my self and I feel as if I have been turned inside out, upside down and given a good shake! New opportunities are opening all around and I feel excited about the next steps, now beginning to check in with myself about how I would like the new year to look and becoming aware of wanting to go into that with a sense of freedom, striding forward and allowing the old to fall away. So breathing and opening to this newness.

I still have a few slots available from now until the new energies come in on New Years eve so please get  in touch if you would like to come and do some work with me in preparation.

Gift Vouchers are available by post or email.



I'm loving this late sunshine, warmth and the amazing colours in nature. There are an abundance of apples in the orchards, and blackberries on the brambles. The rays of the sun seem somehow deeper, softer and more embracing, I love the way they shine through the brightly coloured leaves, casting longs shadows on stone walls. The evenings now getting a little chillier here in the UK, which is also welcome. 

I hope to see you soon.

Back to work

Hello everyone, well it has been a while since I posted here! I am finally back to work after a lovely, long, challenging and incredible 2 year maternity leave with my twins. 

I am offering a full range of treatments again from a purpose built space in our garden which I created with my gorgeous husband and some help from a few friends.
I am so excited to be seeing you all again, or meeting you for the first time. Please feel free to get in touch to book an appointment or have a chat.

Time Out

Hello everyone

Letting you know I will only be working with Frequencies Of Brilliance for the foreseeable future. I hope to be back using the other techniques at the beginning of 2016.

With love


More on Oceans & Plastics

A statement from the report by Steve Connor published in The Independent:

'The latest estimate comes from the total input of plastic waste, from people living within 50km of the coastline in the 192 countries studied.'

Pretty vague but I guess it means us.

I was chatting to a friend recently and she was very pleased she had reduced her weekly rubbish to one small bag. I had to agree this sounded impressive. I consciously choose products with less packaging and still find that this household produces more waste than I am comfortable with. However, on further discussion I realised that she was talking about 'black' rubbish, one small bag of landfill rubbish and on top of that the 'green' rubbish, the waste that will be recycled, yet this is often the waste that is ending up in our oceans.

Rubbish is rubbish no matter what colour is it.


Oceans & Plastic

I have just read another article on  the amount of plastic waste in the sea and washing up on the shoreline. I myself am a witness to this when out walking with my dog Poppy and have got into the habit of picking up a few bits and binning them, not just on the beach but wherever we are walking. Now I know there are people who say the problem is so big it wont make a difference, but you know what? I disagree. That one piece of plastic could be the one that gets stuck in a birds throat leaving it to die slowly and painfully. Does it matter if the bird dies? I don't know, probably not. Does it matter if the bird lives? Yes! I would rather not be a contributing factor to a slow and painful death so I pick things up. If everyone picked one thing up now that would make a difference, yes it would, it could turn the whole thing on its head and maybe even those cynical people who don't believe that we, as humans, have the power to make positive changes would join in and pick things up.

It is up to us. There isn't anyone else. It IS our responsibility.

Now on the other side I don't know how those plastic bottles and bags and old fishing rods even get in the sea. Stopping that happening would be a big bonus... I am on the case...

Hibernation and Waking Up

Right now January is most definitely feeling like the time for hibernation. Outside it is cold, dark, wet & windy and yes, I am English, and yes, I will talk about the weather at the drop of a hat, or a blown away hat as the case may be. The short bursts of sunshine that are coming most days are so very welcome, daffodils have begun to appear with the promise of spring just around the corner. However, in mean time I am making the most of some time spent at home quietly, a sort of regrouping going on. I am enjoying looking after myself, trying new recipes, walking the dog in the woodlands, spending a little time each day on my yoga mat, anything that feels nourishing. Taking a breath and letting go of the belief that being busy means being a better person. Such a relief.

My husband and I watched the film 'Lucy' recently on the advise of my sister & fellow bodyworker. As well as being wonderfully entertaining I also felt re inspired to reach my full potential, to stretch myself a little further. To utilise more of what I already have. Nothing to attain but more a waking up of gifts and tools that are already present. A remembering.

Welcome to 2015

Happy new year everyone! 2015 swept in bringing a crisp, clear & cleansing energy with it. This first week is the perfect time for setting intentions, for clearing the way for new ways of being to come in. The planet is transforming at an astonishing rate and it is supportive for us, as human beings, to open and embrace those changes.

I for one am feeling incredibly excited and positive about my own journey this year. My role here is becoming clearer, stronger and more enjoyable as I learn to navigate my way through this lifetime, always with the intention of being the best I can be.

Sending so much love to you reading this.


Christmas Craft Fair

Tonight is the Christmas Craft Fair at The Lighter in Topsham. It starts at 5pm and there will be lots of handmade lovely things including organic soaps made by Tracey and dream catchers, sun catchers and jewellery made by myself.

There will be carol singing, live music, santas grotto and lots more. All in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Hope to see you there!


A Photo At Dartmoor

I am back after 5 days of intensive Amanae work in Belgium. A big thanks to everyone who took part, it was so much fun!

This is how the woods at Canonteign on Dartmoor looked today.


Wow! Well life just keeps on moving and changing, sometimes it feels like I am just going along with the ride. Next week I will be joining a group of people in Belgium to partake in a 5 day intensive Amanae course. Amanae is described as transformational bodywork and transformational is my experience of this work every single time. It was while receiving a session at Harbin Hot Springs  in 2007 that I remembered that I had come here to do this work. What a revelation! Really I could hardly believe that it had taken me 36 years to remember this as it was now so clear!

And, for me, Amanae continues to bring revelations one after the other, guiding me on my journey and supporting me when things feel difficult and it is so  much fun! Not only that it is an opportunity to spend time with some great people.

For more information about this amazing work

I will be back doing distance work from Tuesday 24th and back working in the room in Topsham on Wednesday 25th.



Gift Vouchers

Gift vouchers are available all year round and can be bought for a specific treatment or to any monetary value. Let me know and I will pop it in the post to you that same day!

I am currently working all day every Wednesday in Topsham above the pharmacy. If I am fully booked on a Wednesday I will endeavour to find a space to work from on another day so that you don't have to wait too long. I am also available on other days for Frequencies of Brilliance distance work. 

I am on annual leave for 2 weeks from the 13th September and am now fully booked for this coming week. Please do let me know if you would like an appointment when I return.


There is a touch of autumn in the air here in Devon, although it seems too early for that, September is just a week away. I will be taking a 2 week holiday in September, from the 13th until the 26th. If you would like to have a treatment before that I have spaces available up until Friday the 12th.

The changing of seasons is an extremely beneficial time to receive any treatment. Many people I speak to are feeling exhausted as their bodies re adjust, not only to the change in temperature but also the energetic changes that are occurring on and within this beautiful planet.

I have heard that summer is coming back next week, one more blast of warmth will not go amiss!

Have just signed up for the next Amanae intensive in November. See below for details:

AMANAE International 5-Day Workshop
November 18 (evening) – November 23, 2014

If you are ready for an opening of the whole body and a vibrant reconnection to the Self, then the Amanae 5-day workshop is for you

An exceptional team of highly trained facilitators and teachers will travel from overseas to bring this extraordinary opportunity to clear ourselves and step more fully into our divine Selves.

The workshop begins a process that will continue to unfold for months, years, and possibly for the rest of your life. Most participants report dramatic shifts in their lives and consciousness after the workshop.

I can truthfully say that I've rarely, possibly never, felt so good in my life as I have since returning from Brussels. I've been feeling energetic and (as far as I can remember) more positive than ever before.  It is as if some ancient, deep feelings of sadness and guilt have disappeared, and I am far more at peace with myself and the world.”

Why is this workshop special? You’ll receive personal attention throughout the workshop to help you let go of old, stuck patterns, and to step forward into your highest vision of yourself. You dive quickly into your deepest issues, and go places within yourselves that are difficult to access in normal consciousness.

Wow, I went deep into my feelings, and into my history…back down to my own birth! I passed some barriers that had been difficult for me.”

How does it work? As the energy and consciousness rises in the room, old blocks hidden for years and lifetimes in our bodies start to vibrate, and shake loose. By allowing the block to surface, it can leave for good; allowing us to relax and stabilize at a higher level of consciousness…until the next block is encountered! We’ll meet plenty of these blocks, and open ourselves a lot during these 5 days.
Just like an individual session but much more so - the movements, breathe and encouragement will help you to let go of habits, gripping, and old emotions so you can experience more freedom.

Thank you for allowing me to be; thank you for the experience of finding myself feeling good about myself; thank you for the immense joy which arises each time I know myself to be in the presence of those so obviously and competently coloring their divine blueprint… and intensely gently & determinedly inspiring others to activate theirs.”

Openness Peace of mind Oneness

The most profound week of my life so far.”

New leaflets have arrived already! Yipee!

New flyer off to the printer today.

This is to let you know about my most popular treatment. See if it appeals to you, and, if you would like to try it, please do get in contact. 

The treatment lasts one hour and consists of 45 minutes massage which will be tailor made to suit you, whether that be for relaxation, lower back pain, shoulder tension or whatever is presenting itself in the moment, I will adapt the process to produce the best results for you. 
The massage is followed by 15 minutes of transformational hands on healing. The combination of the two treatments together result in an incredibly blissful experience with clients reporting an inner sense of peace, calm and tranquility which can result in gaining insight into issues at hand, transformation of physical, mental and emotional pain and discomfort, a cleansing of negative energy, thoughts and beliefs which hold us back from realising our full potential and much more. 
The treatment costs £40. It can be extended by 15 minutes if you prefer a longer massage at a cost of £50.
With love and blessings
