About:

Born in the Cotswolds England in December 1976, I led what is considered to be a normal life. An anxious, sensitive child I did my upmost navigating my way through a tough period of education, finally leaving home with my parent’s support as I followed my boyhood passion setting sights with a vision held strong, focusing all my energy training to become a chef.

I was lucky enough to be employed by some of Britain’s finest Hotels & Restaurants learning my craft, infusing food with my soul devoting early life to the industry. As the years rolled past I began to notice an increase in unhappiness, this was a familiar battle that I had been accustomed to always at the forefront of my mind the most part of my life. Conscious of this unrest, I continued to dismissed these emotions pushing forward once again with little regard given, completely unaware that the demise of life as I knew it, had begun.

Becoming increasingly uncomfortable with my footing in life, scarred through years of depression, slowly I started becoming aware of a very different world surfacing within. Through the fog & internal misery I knew, tough decisions had to be made that could no longer be ignored! Finally, finding the strength to action these feelings I made the hardest choice in my life to date, seeing the separation from my long-term partner & two children as I walked away from my family & home with a heavy heart.

“Walking away from my family was a tough day, one that I will never forget! It was something I had to do, I knew in my heart it was the right choice for all concerned”

It didn’t stop there, tentatively the decision was made to hang up my whites, roll up my knives & turn my back on a prosperous career spanning over two decades. A fruitful career ended after enjoying recognition earning some of the industries most coveted accolades. With a change in consciousness & a passion for knowledge growing outside the four walls of a kitchen, the love affair had finally ended.

“For years I battled against something that was ingrained in me, it was in my blood, but my beliefs began to speak louder, so I finally decided to turn my back on kitchen life”.

Vowing never to look back with regret & momentum on side driven by an inner knowing speaking from the depths of my soul, I submerged myself studying a wide range of self-help & spiritual subject matter. From meditation to non-duality, including teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti, Ramana Maharshi & Paramahansa Yogananda amongst others, re-educating building a different view of the world searching for that deeper, meaningful life that I knew held more substance as this new consciousness continued to emerge.

Witnessing a complete transformation as this new understanding simmered to the surface, & armed with vigour I became a qualified meditation tutor, hypnotherapist, & intuitive counsellor. This fresh outlook on life inspiring as I opened my own studio, running workshops, personal development classes & meditation groups, whilst working alongside clients, offering support & sharing a more rounded view to their considered normal way of life.

Continuing to research & expand my own consciousness, once again I slowly became disillusioned by consistent challenges faced with my own personal development & happiness. With this in mind, the studio doors closed, as I turned my back on what I thought I knew & kept walking in search for that deeper truth that still called in the core of my being, but still eluded me.

Fast forward some years, I am now married & settled back into my hometown after time away refining & learning through introspection. Now living happily & engaging life with a fresh perspective, rich with life flowing through my veins, accompanied with a natural understanding of wholeness, each day see’s in wonder & beauty. This richer, fuller, more balanced lifestyle awareness supports me through change, allowing an instinctive desire for happiness to be present while continuing to explore the infinite world of possibilities available.
