I love to learn and am fascinated by movement, pain and the nervous system. I have learned to overcome the suffering of my own pain with movement - both vigorous and slow - education about pain and the nervous system, self-awareness and mindset. I've spent over 20 years of my adult life teaching; first in schools, then in community centres, exercise studios and therapy rooms. I never stop learning and passing on the nuggets I pick up along then way. I'm all about the biopsychosocial approach to recovery and health. I'm a Somatic Educator, which teaches that the person in front of you is a soma - a thinking, feeling, moving, responding, adapting and changing process - not a lump of meat to impose upon from the outside. A soma in pain can learn to improve function and self-regulate through his/her own agency. I live in Loughborough where I offer classes, workshops and 1:1 coaching/pain & movement education/therapeutic touch for pain relief, better movement, relaxation, stress management, damping down the symptoms of anxiety and enabling somas to get back to activities they love.
