Training, qualifications & experience

I'm proud of my wide-ranging training and qualifications that have uniquely positioned me in both my professional career and personal pursuits. My journey began with obtaining a degree in Design Photography from Plymouth University in 2005, where I delved deeply into the world of phototherapy. My dissertation on the second self not only earned me a commendation but also solidified my commitment to exploring the therapeutic potential of photography. This accolade reflects the innovative approach and impactful work I dedicated myself to during my academic pursuits.

As a qualified and certified Life Coach, I've aligned my passion for supporting individuals through challenging life transitions, such as navigating the aftermath of a breakup or rediscovering one's identity. My certification, obtained from a reputable institution (which I prefer to keep anonymous for now), stands as a testament to my dedication to fostering personal growth and self-discovery in others.

In addition to my coaching qualifications, I am also a Reiki Master. This aspect of my practice allows me to offer a unique form of energy healing, further enriching my ability to support others on a deeply personal level. One of the most transformative experiences in my Reiki practice was when I helped someone overcome profound emotional blockages, leading them towards a path of healing and self-acceptance. It's moments like these that highlight the holistic impact of my work.

What drives me in this journey is a deeply rooted desire to make a positive difference in the lives of others. A pivotal moment for me was realizing the power of combining my creative talents with my passion for healing and coaching. It's this blend that fuels my dedication to helping others find clarity, direction, and a renewed sense of purpose.

Looking ahead, I am committed to continuous learning and growth. I plan to expand my skills further, exploring new methodologies and approaches to healing and personal development. My aim is to deepen the level of support I offer, ensuring that I can meet the evolving needs of those I work with, and continue making a meaningful impact.

Additional information

Regarding my services, I aim to make my support accessible while upholding the quality and personalised approach I believe in. My fees are structured to reflect this balance, with a standard rate of £75 for a 90-minute session. This duration allows us to dive deep into your concerns and work through them thoroughly, ensuring you get the most out of each session.

I recognise that financial circumstances can vary greatly, and I'm committed to making my services available to those who need them. If the standard rate poses a challenge for you, please don't hesitate to email me. I'm open to discussing your situation and exploring how we can adjust the cost to better suit your needs without compromising the quality of support you receive.

It's important to me that financial barriers do not prevent anyone from accessing help. I encourage you to get in touch to discuss any concerns or questions you might have. My goal is to be flexible and supportive, ensuring you can benefit from the guidance and assistance you seek.

Further information

One aspect of my work that stands out is seeing the real difference I can make in people's lives. A case that sticks in my mind is helping someone who was really struggling after a tough breakup. They were lost, dealing with a sense of not knowing who they were anymore. Through our life coaching sessions and Reiki, we worked together to find a way forward.

In our life coaching sessions, we got down to brass tacks about what they wanted from life and what was holding them back. It was all about setting clear, achievable goals and taking steps towards them. The Reiki sessions provided a different kind of support, helping to relieve stress and bring about a sense of calm and balance.

The change didn’t happen overnight, but the progress was clear. They came out the other side more confident and with a better sense of direction. This case really hammered home for me the impact of combining practical, goal-focused coaching with the holistic benefits of Reiki.

It’s experiences like this that drive me to keep improving my practice. I’m always looking for new techniques and approaches to offer better support. My goal is simple: to help people get through tough times and come out stronger on the other side.

Looking forward, I’m focused on continuing to learn and grow in my field, ensuring I can offer the best possible support to those who need it.
