During my early career, I was a photographic fashion model. For most of my adult life I have been working in the field of natural therapies, specialising in Hatha Yoga, Deep Tissue Muscle Therapy and Holistic Reflexology. I am passionate about and inspired by all things natural including the creative arts; specifically nature, music, film and photography.
Of particular fascination to me, is the intrinsic relationship between human wellbeing and our natural environment; I perceive the two as One symbiotic universal energy. My published articles for Australian Wellbeing and Simply Living magazines, along with ongoing photography projects further explore the relationship between nature, wellbeing and humanity's footprint.
Mother Nature is the greatest of teachers in my experience: I have been through several intense life changing experiences, that I would never have survived without the wisdom of Mother Nature to guide me. One of which was a serious car accident at the age of 26 - when three vertebrae in my spine were crushed and broken. At the time, I was told by doctors I may never walk again. As a result of that event and during the long process of healing, I realised the extent to which yoga and natural therapies could help my recovery. I subsequently became a yoga teacher, deep tissue muscle therapist and reflexologist, because these were the methodologies, I could employ, that helped immensely to relieve my pain.
Subsequently, I became a professional natural therapist, helping others who had been injured or were experiencing some kind of physical pain and/or discomfort. During the 90's my successful professional and private life unexpectedly took a turn for the worse, when I experienced further injury and trauma. As a result, I became seriously ill with chronic fatigue syndrome. Subsequently, I was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder.
Now I understand, more than ever, how important it is to support and nurture one's wellbeing - even when difficult decisions may have to be made to let go of anything negative in one's life. Also, I have become acutely aware of how important the quality of our natural environment is to achieving, not only human wellbeing, but, the wellbeing of all life on Earth. The latter is our home and our nest, and we should guard against and protect it well from all forms of misuse and degradation. Our very survival and and joie de vivre depends upon it! In fact, the task of regenerating our natural environment is imperative if we are going to have any chance of creating a positive, peaceful life experience. I am inspired to share the best I have to give towards achieving that goal, and have written a book about my healing experiences and the valuable lessons I have learnt, particularly in regard to the relationship between wellbeing, the environmment, and spiritual development - that will be published on my website later this year.
