My Approach & Values

Ever since I arrived here in Ireland I always had a calling to practice Reiki and Reflexology. I had ignored this calling for over a decade. Being a new mum in 2007 and also working in the psych-geriatric hospital since 2006 it started to take its toll on my health and that got me to a point in my life that steered me on the right direction which is what I love doing now, offering holistic therapies to people. My experience at the hospital has taught me to be compassionate, caring and nurturing to all the people I meet. That made me realise that nothing is what it seems. Everybody is fighting their own battle be it health issues, stressful situations, career or anything at all.

I am passionate in what I do and in my practice I offer my clients a holistic approach to their healing. Not only do I deal with physical issues but also mental, emotional and spiritual issues as well. I believe I am a channel or conduit in my clients’ self-healing journey. With that in mind I encourage them to take responsibility for their health.

My intention is to provide the highest standard of therapy and aftercare to my clients. It is my aim to provide a nurturing hands on therapy to help them improve their lives holistically. Each client has a unique path of healing and so I often combined my healing sessions, being a Reiki practitioner myself I always and automatically channel Reiki energy to my clients whilst doing a treatment session outside Reiki.

It is very important for me to provide a safe, professional, confidential, one to one environment where my clients get the time and attention they deserve. I now help many people in many ways and there’s nothing more rewarding than that.

My Experience

I have vast experience dealing with the public and the people in general. I have always been in the caring profession. During my internship years in 2003-2004 as a physical therapy student it opened my eyes to a lot of different types of people from all walks of life. On top of working with patients in the hospital and community centres I have also work in school for special needs kids, I have met lovely kids despite what society has labelled them, they are nice kids which I believe are often misunderstood by the society.

During 2004 – 2006 I have worked in the IT industry, my first experience was as a Technical Support Representative dealing with AT & T customers from USA while working under Sykes company. Then when I arrived here in Ireland in 2006 I had my first employment  in the IT department of Cork County Council in May followed by a position in Apple Computers as a Customer Representative.

Then I decided to go back working in the health sector as a Health Care Assistant employed by the (HSE) Health Service Executive since November 2006 till the present. Working in the psych-geriatric hospital was challenging at the start having no experience or background dealing with such patients. Through the years I have develops skills in communicating and understanding patients who cannot communicate the way we normally do. It is through my years of working with the HSE and the challenges I have encountered that made me decide to start working on the holistic side of things. I thought to myself that there should be another way in dealing with all the mental stresses and issues that every person faces. We are in a world where everybody is so busy and so wound up over every little thing. We worry too much over everything. Somebody told me that when our body is relaxed we heal. I believe the holistic approach is the best approach in getting our body back into balance.
