From an early age I have always been fascinated by the mind/body connection and how our emotions and thoughts can affect the health of our bodies.
I have over twenty years experience facilitating and working with people of all ages, from all walks of life, through the medium of drama.
In 2016, after going through some big and stressful life events I found myself tired, lacking in energy and motivation and experiencing a general feeling of being stuck. I had heard of Kinesiology many years previously and decided to give it a go. At my first session I discovered that my adrenals were in a state of weakness due to prolonged stress and my digestive system was also out of balance which was contributing to my low mood and lack of energy and motivation. After a few days I started to feel my old self coming back and after my second session, I decided to train as a Kinesiologist. I completed Foundation level training in March 2018 and will complete my Practitioner training April 2019.
My approach is person centred and involves encourages people to make positive changes to their own lifestyles in order to improve their overall wellbeing.
I have also worked as an actress and producer in both theatre and film, and also as a teacher and facilitator on many outreach, community, school and university theatre projects in both Ireland and the UK. I have written a number of plays using the testimony of real of people to creaete the scripts. These plays have dealt with various subjects such as cancer, death, domestic violence, war, road safety, the environmental landscape and revolution. Less Than a Year (2006), Walking Away (2007), Under Pressure (2008), Aquéro (2010), The Exeter Blitz Project (2012), The River (2014) and Rising (2016). In 2011, I completed a PhD in Performance Practice at the University of Exeter on the staging of personal testimony. I currently lecture in Drama at Bath Spa University.
