I had always assumed my life would involve traditional sciences, however, after embarking on a Diploma in Holistic Therapy out of interest, rather than career choice, and having been introduced to the beginnings of Shiatsu, I decided I simply could not live without this wonderful way of being in my life.
I began my studies in Shiatsu in 2004 and continue to feel as passionate and interested in Shiatsu today as I did in my first class.
Since completing my Diploma in Shiatsu at the Glasgow School of Shiatsu, I have acted as an assistant to all three levels of the course and in 2015, after a further year of study, I was granted my MrSS T status (Teacher member of the Register of Professional Shiatsu Practitioners – Shiatsu Society). I feel privileged to be asked to share my knowledge with the students of the Glasgow School of Shiatsu.
I feel honoured to name Elaine Liechti, Vicky Smyth and Liz Arundel from the Glasgow School of Shiatsu among my teachers and I am also grateful for the input of Clifford Andrews and Akinobu Kishi to my work.
As well as teaching Shiatsu, I currently lecture in anatomy and physiology for the Complementary Therapies department at Glasgow Clyde College, where I regularly teach massage and aromatherapy introductory classes.
I have a keen interest in my own self development and find enjoyment in practising yoga, meditation and shodo.
