About Me


From Corporate Caterpillar to Holistic Butterfly
My Belief’s

I believe that holistic therapies work! Having been brought up by loving parents who believe in the benefits of massage, yoga, aromatherapy, crystal healing and magnet therapy it was no surprise that I was inspired to nurture a healing business like RiverLife Therapy. I also believe that if we make the choice to be successful and when we immerse ourselves within circles of supportive caring individuals everyone can achieve their own personal objectives whatever they may be. It is no secret that people who love what they see in the mirror portray a more positive reflection to those they love and admire, loyal friends,

followers and clients. A positive mental attitude helps maintain a healthy conscience. It is this attitude I wish to portray to you, perhaps you understand this already or want to explore a more holistic approach to compliment your own lifestyle and Perhaps you see some of my qualities and values in yourself and think that we could work together. If I was to describe my values as loyal, non-judgemental, discrete, resilient and honest would you mentally tick them off as your own?

    • If like me you work hard and play hard then you probably have earned and deserve some quality ‘you’ treatments.

My Journey from Corporate Caterpillar to Holistic Butterfly.  

Where did it all change? Samvega!

A samvega can be described as a ‘Ah hah’ moment or the point at which you realise that you are banging your head against a brick wall and that the choices you are making do not align with the universal plan that we all have mapped out for us. I realised this ‘Ah hah’ after I had  been made redundant for the second time from the corporate/charity sector. So with my experiences in Business Development Management and personal interests in yoga and holistic therapies I had a tool kit that I could develop into the best business model ever. A massage therapy business that could heal people, help people and educate people on their own health and wellbeing. Sounds brilliant right?

This is what I did!

Firstly, I had a good hard look in the mirror! I found that confidence, minus anger, plus supportive loving husband equalled a chance to reinvent myself. I brushed out the cobwebs and retrained at the London School of Massage as a Holistic Massage Therapist at ITEC Level 3 and then made it better with a BTEC Level 5 Deep Tissue qualification. I joined the Federation of Holistic Therapists to ensure my clients could see I was part of something serious and I was committed to an organisation that was made up of like-minded people who were always learning. It is also important to mention my experience of a lifetime! I spent 6 weeks at Anand Prakash Ashram in India under the watchful eye of a master yogi, Yogrishi Vishvektu, and undertook the Yoga Alliance YTT course which qualifies me to teach Akhanda Yoga.

So after reading about me, what about you?

  • You share the same beliefs and values as me?
  • You need some quality ‘me’ time?
  • You are looking for a therapist who believes in you?
  • Perhaps you are a therapist who is looking for another therapist to help?
  • You have aches and pains or a reoccurring injury?
  • You have areas of tightness and tension?
  • You are looking to implement a new routine in your life?
  • Perhaps learn something new? Yoga for health and happiness?

My guess is that if you have ticked some or all these boxes then you should come and talk to me.
