ABOUT ME

 I'm a Certified Functional Breathing Therapist and Breath-Body-Mind Teacher. Having trained with some of the worlds leading Breath Masters such as Dan Brule, Dr Patricia Gerbarg and  Dr Ricard Brown (Clinical Psychiatrists form the USA). My training with Patrick McKeown has also enabled me to specialise as an International Buteyko Breathing Method Practitioner & as an Oxygen Advantage Functional Breathing Coach

After leaving my high flying career behind, working for some of the UK's leading advertising agencies, I eventually followed my passion and life's purpose: firstly, to help myself to overcome chronic anxiety and high stress levels through holistic therapies, and then to retrain in those therapies so that I could go on to help others.

My qualifications and work include:

  • Biomedicine and Human Science at the College of Naturopathic Medicine, Manchester

  • Clinical Reflexology

  • Reproductive Reflexology

  • Fertility Coaching

  • Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Practitioner

  • Trauma related EFT (Matrix Reimprinting)

  • Meditation teacher

  • ".b" Mindfulness for teens teacher

  • Fundamentals in Breathwork

  • Breath- Body-Mind Teacher

  • YogaBody  Pranayama Breath Coach

  • Buteyko Breathing Method Practitioner 

  • Oxygen Advantage Functional Breathing Coach

  • Stress Consultant (ongoing)

I discovered the healing power of the breath after my daughter and I were involved in the Manchester Arena Terrorist attack in 2017. The overwhelming effect this work had, not only on my trauma and PTSD after the atrocity but also on my chronic anxiety, stress and menopausal symptoms was profound .

So my soul focus is now on delivering breathing therapy to people in this profound field of work and  also supporting those charities close to my heart:  The Peace Foundation, the Uk's largest charity for victims of terrorism, and The Relax with Lucy & Co mental health and wellness charity.

I believe that the key to health and wellbeing starts with the breath. It is the foundation from which we can transform our state of being: physically, mentally and emotionally.

With the right breathing tools for you, as an individual, you can change your life for the better - so change your breath and change your life!

HOW CAN I HELP YOU?

As a Functional Breathing therapist, I re-educate people on how to breathe correctly.

By identifying and reversing your dysfunctional breathing patterns and addressing poor breathing habits, I can enhance your mental, hormonal and respiratory health and well-being.

 
I can successfully help people suffering with:

I work with clients on a one to one basis or in small groups, to develop bespoke breathing plans. I  teach science backed breathing protocols that will, given commitment and a dedicated practice, produce amazing results in ones overall health and well-being.
