"The help you have given me is enormous...

I am truly coming into my own... and feel happier and more nourished in places that I thought would always be sad and empty... a transformation so great I would not have believed it possible."

Mark Maddrell

Shiatsu - sensitive, powerful bodywork for deep nurturing, healing and transformation

Shadow Work - intensive experiential process work to safely and deeply transform unconscious patterns that are holding you back

In Chagford, Dartmoor, Devon UK


For over a decade I have been helping people:

  • transform their pain, difficulty and stuckness

  • connect with their bodies and emotions

  • find greater ease and self acceptance


I believe that everyone has a place of perfect wisdom within themselves, and holds all the tools they need for their healing.


Although clients often come with physical ailments, shiatsu works with the whole being rather than just the symptom to profoundly support the healing process of body, mind, emotions and spirit.


My experience includes working as a shiatsu practitioner for charities Naomi House, a mother and baby home for women with a history of street sex work; and the Rosie Crane Trust for bereaved parents.

I also offer one-to-one Shadow Work sessions and regularly run Shadow Work weekend workshops with my partner Tim Hall. 


I offer a safe, confidential and supportive space where you can bring whatever you want to bring and be with whatever you need to be with, so that ultimately you can fully inhabit your life and your body as the unique and beautiful being you are.
