Birth, Creativity, Dance and Healing
Birth, creativity, dance and healing are the themes you will find to explore here, but first, a little bit about me…
My career has been varied, encompassing post-grad Fine Art practice and exhibitions in both Australia and the UK, working as a teacher with two teaching qualifications which have enabling me to work initially in mainstream Art and Design and latterly, in Steiner education.
I am also a qualified complimentary therapist using transformational therapies and I specialise in helping women to resolve previous birth trauma, which you can read more about on the therapies pages.
As well as this I write, facilitate groups, mother my children and work as a doula, supporting couples in preparation for childbirth, during birth and post-birth. You can read more about this on the birth & pregnancy pages.
In 2002 I began facilitating creative arts workshops for adults, drawing on the therapeutic practices of dance, meditation and painting combined into a powerful yet simple process. Three years later, during my first pregnancy, I started to design a course using this creative process, to support women in self-development during pregnancy and in preparing for birth.
I ran the first Birth Vision course in 2006 and now facilitate these regularly in the South East of England. These programmes have grown from strength to strength and the “BIRTH VISION guide book to pregnancy, birth and early parenthood” (soon to be published) has evolved from the course itself and from the amazing stories of women who have participated on it over the years.
As a birth professional my career has included writing articles for Juno parenting magazine, using my blog and speaking publicly about my work to look at issues surrounding self-development, life and birth.
I also offer ‘Creative Retreat Days For Women’, ‘Pregnancy Dance’ classes, and ‘Doula Days’. You can read more about these on this website and do contact me if you have any questions about anything, or if you wish to book a course, workshop or treatment or to inquire about the Book!
May you be well x
