about mybodo & me
I chose the name mybodo because, after decades of self-exploration, I perceived that the key to transcending my many chronic illnesses was the journey with myself. My intention is to use the experience, and the professional training I have invested in over the years, to create a gateway for more individuals to embark on their own journeys towards a more consciously bodacious life in body and spirit.
Compassionate, non-judgemental support is at the core of all I offer. The journey is not easy but it grants us the power to shape our lives whilst enabling us to be more autonomous, resilient and collectively connected.
With decades of experience, I offer customised 1:1 sessions blending various approaches designed to support you as a holistic being made up of physical, psychological, social, cultural, environmental, energetic and spiritual dimensions. This is an integrative approach that will help you self-heal, change your energy and inspire vitality and self-mastery. Here are some of the tools I use:
Massage & hands-on touch therapies (Eastern and Western influences)
Guided Conscious Movement & Mind-Body Stress Reduction (MBSR)
Stress & tension release through reflexive & contemplative practices
Vibrational Healing Touch
Guided visualisation & meditation
My personal journey draws from pioneers like Dr. John Sarno, my extensive dance training, and more recently a long-term collaboration with Renato Pappalardo (author, consultant and pioneer of energy & integrative massage training in France).
In 2022, I had the opportunity to collaborate with a leading physiotherapy & rehabilitation center in Iceland - working with chronic pain, stress, burnout and trauma.
In 2023, I performed an inter-generational movement piece Like Me 2 choreographed by Léa Leclerc. I also collaborate with Lea on summer movement workshops and we're planning an audio-visual movement project for early 2024 (subject to funding). Also, this year I ran a workshop with Margaret Pikes, (author, performer and international voice trainer in the Roy Hart Tradition) exploring movement connected to vocal sounds and breath.
I move between the UK, South of France, and Iceland, I'm bilingual and an advocate for affordable access to CAM therapies within our healthcare systems.
