A Bit About Me

I would describe myself as a resilient, patient, and compassionate practitioner, with a humanistic theoretical orientation and a holistic approach to wellbeing. I obtained a diploma in law from the University of London and worked within the criminal courts system but following life-changing events in my own life, my interests turned to personal development, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), yoga and alternative practices, I embarked on a journey East towards India but I also began an inner journey towards the self and self-realization.

My exploration into yoga began almost two decades ago when i was gifted a copy of the Bhagavad Gita and I have spent the last 10 years as a self-employed yoga teacher, holistic therapist, wellbeing coach & counsellor. My teachers/influences include philosophers Alan Watts, Carl Jung and Arthur Schopenhauer, yoga teachers Patabolli Jois, BKS Iyengar and Paul Grilley, spiritual leaders, Swami Niranjanananda and Moji, philosophy teacher’s Deepak Chopra, Dr Keshava Murthy and Tarun Hari Das.
