Core values

Healthy woman out in nature making a heart shape with her hands

My approach is built upon the holistic approach to health which has at its heart, the idea that the health of our body, mind, spirit and environment are inextricably linked.


This means that problems arising at any of these levels will affect all the others and conversely that if we strengthen any of these levels then others will be strengthened too.


In understanding and improving our health we must attend to the health and nourishment of all aspects of ourselves. Most particularly, to be really well, we must base our lives upon the fulfillment of our own authentic desires, needs and purpose, moving bit by bit away from influences which really do not serve us.


When working with clients, I will always look to see what may have been the root cause of illness and how each individual can become involved in finding their own way back into a healthy, happy and exciting relationship to themselves and the life they lead.


To assist in the clarification of the factors which affect our health and happiness I have created the Picture of Health self-assessment tool. I encourage all clients to complete their own Picture of Health in preparation for our initial consultation to help assess the current state of their health and wellbeing.


Above all I will ensure that my clients feel:

  • Cared for and listened to

  • Supported unconditionally

  • That their programme is realistic and achievable

  • Empowered to succeed

  • Well informed and well guided

  • Always treated as a unique individual

  • Helped to become fully independent

  • Encouraged to reach their full potential in life

  • That they are the greatest expert on themselves and the leader of their health care team!

There are clients of mine who had serious cancer still living 20 and 30 years on from their original diagnosis. Click here to read the inspiring story of Gillian Gill, living on from her diagnosis of stage 4 ovarian cancer in 2000!
