To the public:

I am the FIRST & most experienced Watsu Instructor in the UK.
Over the course of over 2 decades I have pioneered Watsu in the U.K.introducing it to many who are now practitioners and teachers along side me on the UK registry.

Since 1996,I studied with Harold Dull,the originator of Watsu & many leading practitioners in California, Hawaii & Italy & have assisted internationally on Watsu trainings.

As a qualified, experienced Alexander Technique teacher of 26 years and a Craniosacral Therapist, I bring refined awareness to the process of aquatic bodywork and the teaching of it. I have led workshops & Well-Being sessions for British Airways and taught Watsu on hydrotherapy trainings over many years.

Since attending the First Watsu Instructor Training in the World in 1999 I am qualified to teach Basic Watsu and Watsu 1, successfully teaching in hospices, hospitals, special needs schools, hydrotherapy units and spas throughout the UK and abroad.

In 2000 I introduced Watsu to Chiva Som Health Resort in Thailand and it is now their signature treatment. I have also taught and practiced in the Six Senses Spa in The Maldives and Molyvos in Greece. In the UK I have worked out of Nirvana Spa in Berkshire, The Royal Crescent Hotel in Bath and Six Senses Spa in Canary Wharf, London.

Additionally I trained in Healing Dance water modality, Jahara Technique, Pre-Natal Journey and am a fully qualified Waterdance Practitioner, a modality of Watsu which involves movement both on & below the water by connecting with the breath [client wears a noseclip].

Recently I became initiated in India as a Oneness Blessing Giver and like to combine this with my water sessions. The blessing helps to activate the frontal lobes in the brain and facilitate states of higher consciousness. I'm calling this "Oneness Watsu" and feel it is a valuable contribution to this work.

I endeavour to bring a grace & presence to my sessions using my extensive experience in body mechanics, developmental patterns, meditation & yoga. I welcome the opportunity for people to savour the joy of freedom in aquatic movement & flow. I see water as a unique and essential healing medium.
