My career has included senior management roles in Acute Mental Health settings, within the Voluntary Sector and training as an individual & family therapist. During my career I have been fortunate to have a Qigong practice that served as a touchstone for relaxation, grounding and connection to a community of like minded people.
My practice has been informed by a variety of Qigong teachers and Masters significant among whom are; Jhixing Wang, Shi Jing and Daverick Leggett. A diversity of influences have enabled me to practice and teach specific and effective forms of Qigong. Additionally I have been strongly influenced by Daoism, the philosophical root of Qigong.
I have always had a strong desire to explore the high country and have done so through walking and climbing. The experience of being in the mountains and hills, even the moors that I call home, always generates a feeling of plenitude and joy for me. One of the powerful effects of Qigong practice has been to enable me to experience those feelings of connection during those times when I have been unable to access the outside world through work or family commitments.
I am a graduate of the Shiatsu College Qigong Teacher Training course.
