we are passionate to help alleviate this stress within the workplace and to help others find an inner balance within the urban environment.
“my earlier career as a project manager in a top corporate identity design agency and latterly as a milliner gave me great insight into the fashion and creative industries: the deadlines, along with the pressures both mentally and physically that the body sustains.
i became attuned to reiki in 2014. a few years before this my entire belief system reconfigured itself when one of my sons suffered life threatening brain seizures soon after being diagnosed with leukaemia. throughout his 3 years of treatment, i became more acutely aware of the value of true love and faith – i have never met another human with such strength and total acceptance as my child. he was the inspiration in my dark days and his own faith and philosophical approach to all that he had to endure led me to humbly follow his teachings. once his treatment had ended, i awoke one day to declare that i wanted to learn how to be a reiki therapist, without really knowing what it was. all i knew was that i wanted to help both others and myself achieve and sustain a more easeful life, freedom from pain, a more balanced flow of energy and an abundance of harmony, and love within our busy and complicated lives.
in 2017 i became a reiki master and teacher. since then, my trust in the benefits of receiving reiki grows stronger on a daily basis and i believe that this subtle and abundant energy can really help achieve and sustain our own personal equilibrium, physically and physiologically. reiki for me is my faith and provides my guidelines for living. through reiki i now experience the transformational effects of understanding the energetic flow of my physical and subtle energy bodies.
i have collaborated with pollyanna to create Inner Flow Zone. through our own experiences of working in the industry, our aim is to facilitate reiki wellness treatments for creatives. our love of music and its wellbeing benefits led us to reach out to artists in the music industry as we feel that despite the joy they bring to others, their own wellness requirements are often left unattended.”
my design background comes from within the area of sportswear fashion, working for various international lifestyle fashion brands throughout my career. it was a natural step to re-focus my design career from sports fashion into wellness of the physical body and energy therapy. my love of the ever evolving sciences of body/mind interconnection and energy systems found a home in reiki, and I started to find the answers to the questions I had been curious about…. how positive intentions can improve health…. how we can get in the flow creatively…. and how energy is the connecting factor to all improvements in health and abundant inspiration….
I initially studied to become a nutritionist and my nutrition studies have given me a well placed grounding in body physiology and common ailments. I still value nutrition as an essential pillar to good health but without a fresh flow of energy within the body, even the healthiest diet will find it hard to enable the body to truly thrive, therefore I chose the powerful energy therapy of reiki in which to practice.
my background as a fashion designer enables me to be sympathetic to the stresses and seasonal timelines experienced by the creative industries. I am passionate to help alleviate this stress within the workplace and unlock stagnant energy to encourage enhanced creativity and open thinking. by co-founding inner flow zone with fiona this passion can become a positive reality to help others find an inner balance within the hectic urban environment.
