I believe in the power of therapeutic touch and subtle healing modalities as a means of reaching people from all walks of life, including those who are often marginalised and disengaged. Many people are living increasingly busy lives, bombarded with environmental stimuli and are too mentally distracted and physically exhausted to realise the effects of our individual life choices on ourselves, our wider communities and our most vulnerable. Mental health issues are on the increase in developed countries and there continue to be serious health inequalities in disadvantaged groups and those living on the fringes of society. This state we find ourselves in is far removed from our natural state of being. Through my own personal journey into healing I have realised that when we start to take personal responsibility for our own well-being, things can change and there is a way to live, even thrive in our lives and hopefully support others to do the same.
“No act of kindness is too small, the gift of kindness may start as a small ripple that over time can turn into a tidal wave affecting the lives of many”
I work independently from home offering a variety of healing modalities to support people to come into an integrated state of being. This journey is individual to each person. My clients include professional and non-professional people. Some simply come for the physical benefits of massage or reflexology, others come to experience a sense of calm and peace that may be lacking in their lives. Then there are those searching for direction, or a deeper connection to themselves. In addition to working from home I collaborate alongside other therapists within MIND Mental Health Charity to promote accessible complementary therapy events .
I have a long background in nursing and have worked within NHS services promoting and offering holistic care in environments largely dominated by the medical model. My speciality has been working with Adults with learning disabilities, including those with complex physical needs and mental health issues, as well as their carers. I have professional, therapeutic and personal experience with these client groups. I have family members with physical disabilities, mental health issues and long-term medical conditions. I am also a mother of three and have been a carer for many years.
“The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well”
In recent years I have developed an interest in mindfulness and subtle healing modalities, including energy work such as Reiki, Sound healing, and Soul Retrieval using creative visualisation, guided meditations and my beloved drum. My biggest passion is incorporating these modalities with the therapeutic use of touch. I believe that when touch is used with the intention to heal, connect and communicate positive regard to the receiver, powerful changes can occur on the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical planes. When theses changes occur within individuals, there is a natural state of expansion and increase in energy
Sensoma, in essence, is facilitating central awareness and healing through the somatic and higher senses to those who are in need and open to such experiences.
