Welcome to Facets

I began my career ‘on the boards’ and have many years’ experience in theatre involving all performance arts. I also taught speech, drama, dance and mime to a wide range of age groups. I then moved in to training consultancy, working with individuals and at organisational level.

It has seemed to be a natural progression to learn and develop therapy skills. During the last few years I have trained as a massage therapist, leading on to the specialisms of MLD. I also trained as a NLP Practitioner and Clinical and Analytical Hypnotherapist.

Over the past 6 years I have added to my skill base. I studied for a Diploma with the National Centre for Eating Disorders, and offer one-to-one therapy on an individual basis, helping with all forms of eating distress and problems with body image.


I also further developed my spiritual self, and qualified as a Reiki Level 2 Practitioner. This has been particularly useful in Sarajevo, where I first travelled in 2010 with the Healing Hands Network. HHN was set up to send volunteer care professionals to disaster spots around the world and offer hands-on healing and therapy to victims of war.

For the future – I continue to attend 2-yearly reviews for Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD). I have also recently attended a 3-day workshop ‘Understanding our Connective Tissue System’ to enhance my MLD practice. I am now a Tripudio exercise instructor, which enables better movement for problem joints and conditions.

I see all these skills as a powerful combination to help people release creative potential for positive change, to relieve stress and bring fulfilment and balance to everyday life.
