I am a Shiatsu practitioner and teacher, traveller and crafter.
I live in Edinburgh, Scotland, and have 2 grown-up daughters. I give one-to-one Shiatsu therapy sessions; teach groups for all sectors of the community (Shiatsu, chi gung, acupressure, meditation) in the UK and abroad; and run a Shiatsu school (established 2000).
In the Autumn of 2016 I took a sabbatical and travelled to Spain, visiting Shiatsu practitioners there and exchanging my skill for a bed and board. I walked the Camino Frances, part of the Via de la Plata (another camino, but backwards from Santiago de Compostella towards Seville), and around the Sierra Calderona near Valencia.
In 2017 I had the pleasure of teaching in Paris and working on a Shiatsu mobile application in Normandy, taking the opportunity to walk again to Mont Saint-Michel, and elsewhere in Normandy and Brittany.
I then moved back into Spain, again exchanging bed and board for Shiatsu, to visit Zaragoza, Seville, and walk a further 10 days of the Via de la Plata, this time towards Santiago from Seville, ending in Merida.
I write articles about my work and travels, and am available for media interviews.
