My my it's been a while since I've been here. I just feel that it's time to make a little appearance again. As much as I love facebook it's not really the right place for a story and a good ol' yarn.
Also, I'm sure that a lot of folk won't really be interested in what have say. I do tend to ramble! So I though I'd give you the option to get to know me better rather than ramble on your timeline!.
A bit about me..in a nutshell..I am just beginning my training in reflexology and I am very excited about this new direction in my life. I have always been interested in healing and different therapies and approaches to healing from nutrition to cognitive therapy. I studied Applied Pychology at University and worked for years in mental health and substance misuse services before I had children. I was fortunate enough to be able to take time off to raise a family but I didn't want to return to the care sector in the same way. I prefer a more holistic approach and I found the confines of the medical model and my job description too limiting. (I was also running too low on sleep, energy and patience to be of any real help :) !!)
In short...I am a big hippy who happens to love science, maths and psychology. I have been pondering on how to best help people heal (and myself) for as long as I can remember. I have a large appetite for self-help books and books on philosophy, religion, natural remedies, nutrition, movement therapy, art therapy, motivational techniques. etc etc .I am not terribly well read and my memory is not great but slowly things are coming together.
I have had a few moments lately when information gleaned from very different areas has cross fertilised and created something very new (to me) and interesting. Perhaps it has been said before..most likely it has..but it is my truth and I would very much like to share it with you.
So..on with the journey...
I'll be back soon! Thanks for reading!
