A little background info 

I am a traveller, an adventurer, a freedom seeker, a beach and sun worshipper, an explorer of new possibilities, a nature lover and a very proud Mum. I have a lifelong commitment to and am totally passionate about, health, wellbeing, and self-development. Through my work I have been fortunate enough to travel the world, visiting many countries years before they became frequented by thousands of tourists. I have also lived for several years in Australia (Melbourne & Perth), as well as many counties throughout the UK. 


My Work 

In 1989 I trained in Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Massage. My Aromatherapy training was with Robert Tisserand, also known as the Father of Aromatherapy, and his wonderful in-depth knowledge was to change my life. Soon after finishing my training I had a thriving and fully booked practice at the South London Natural Health Centre in Clapham. During this time I was also teaching Aromatherapy and Massage for two prestigious schools in London and Surrey, as well as assisting Robert Tisserand by facilitating his Introduction to Massage courses. I eventually left the UK to live in Melbourne where I taught Aromatherapy and Massage to Diploma level students for In Essence Aromatherapy, the largest company of its kind in Australia. Fabulous years indeed!

After many years of travelling (professionally and personally), I decided it was time to put down roots and relocate to the beautiful English countryside. My dream was to live in an area of outstanding natural beauty which would nurture my 4-year-old daughter as she grew up. So, in 1997 my husband and I moved to Dorset, a stunningly beautiful county with some equally stunning beaches (beaches feature heavily in my life and I’m never happier than when I’m close to water).

In 2013, after concentrating on my work as a Natural Health Therapist and Teacher of Aromatherapy and Massage, I launched Conscious Living Events in Dorset, with a commitment to ‘Bring the Best Speakers to the South’. My aim was to host high profile speakers, those who are leaders in the fields of self-development, health, wellness spirituality and business. It seemed that my intuition hadn’t let me down because just three years after the company’s launch I had hosted over 50 events with some very notable speakers. My guests, my team and I were in heaven!

In 2016 I passed Conscious Living Events on to my dear friend and long-term teammate, Clara Apollo, who I have to say is doing an outstanding job! This enabled me to move to the beautiful county of Devon where I continued with my mission to ‘Bring the Best Speakers to the South’ and launched Living Now Events. I am happy to say that this has also proved to be very popular with both guests and speakers alike.

I continue to host speakers and run my own Aromatherapy workshops for beginners and intermediary students and am still as passionate about Aromatherapy and Essential Oils as I was the day I discoverd them, all those year ago!

If you would like to know more about Living Now Events or my Aromatherapy workshops you will find all the info you need on the pages of this website. Or, if you prefer, I am happy to chat to you in person. Feel free to check out my details on the contact page. Thank you.
