Many people have asked me how I’ve come to the healing work that is so central to my life. I look at my life and work as a an ongoing journey, and am honoured to share my journey with you.
When I was diagnosed with a rare and fast growing form of breast cancer, known as BRCA1, Triple Negative in 2009, she turned to natural therapies, to ease her anxiety and fear around death. Now I am helping clients on their journey through cancer to the path of self healing.
In 2017, I declined a radical mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy when her Breast Cancer returned, and through the use of natural therapies, put her cancer in to remission.

At 35 years old, just 8 weeks prior to our wedding day, I was diagnosed with the BRCA1, genetic form of Cancer – the most aggressive form of Breast Cancer that can quickly spread to the organs.
Like most cancer patients, once chemotherapy and radiotherapy had finished, I was suffering from physiological distress, sadness, panic and fear – all linked to the disease. I then stumbled along a post on social media, where one woman contacted her to give some simple healing tips. I started reading up on how to heal, and to this day, have not stopped educating myself around healing.
My fast growing cancer returned 8.5 years later, where at this point I knew I could not go through the trauma of conventional chemotherapy and radiotherapy again, and instead had all the tools and knowledge to enable me to heal my body.
I had minor surgery and spent almost one year treating myself with self-care to enable me to be once again, in remission from cancer. I realise that while I always knew I would die, one way or another, I am not prepared in the slightest for losing my life.
Practicing nutritional science, Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture, has enabled me to help others going through possibly the toughest time in their life. With over decade of experience, I have discovered what works, what doesn’t, and what it means to live a truly full life.
I have spent clinical time in both the U.S. and Europe, researching integrative therapies.
Acupuncture, Diet plans, Lab Testing and Herbal Medicine are prescribed to meet each individuals needs, and supplementation where necessary.
How I began her journey in to creating natural botanical skincare, haircare and pure beeswax candles.
As a result of the radiotherapy I underwent in 2009, my skin was left badly burnt. The hospital dermatologist prescribed me skincare creams that contained many toxins including parabens.
Instead I went about producing her own basic skincare creams. To my surprise, and delight, after only a few days of using her product, her skin began to heal. This was my eureka moment.
With such amazing results, I began removing all her expensive beauty products and replaced them with natural ones I created myself. She created samples for her family and friends, and now they are available to purchase in her clinic.
Today, individual herbal skincare for those going through radiotherapy can be provided.
I have kept her products as natural as possible, using plants as the base in each product.
An extensive list of my training can be found here.
What I have learnt through cancer, has transformed my life forever, and it can transform yours too!
At present, there is no legal requirement for nutrition practitioners to be qualified or registered. So choosing a properly qualified and registered practitioner is important, to make sure that you are being seen by someone with the appropriate level of skill, especially when there are so many courses in nutrition that are very short and lack depth.
