My Story

In a nutshell… my children have been my inspiration.

I became interested in natural approaches to health and wellbeing with the birth of my first child. A baby brings the opportunity to reconnect with the basics. This led me to train in holistic massage. I became so fascinated by the healing power of touch that I took a career break (from 11 years of advisory work in the EU) and never looked back.

6 years later, the school principal advised to get this same child assessed for dyslexia/dyspraxia. He was also agitated and emotionally vulnerable.

This was my first cross-roads. It is commonly a point where most parents feel confused and overwhelmed. While the help offered came from good standard care, the inquisitive part of me wanted to know more.


By pure chance, I got in contact with a kinesiologist who diagnosed him with gluten intolerance, a much unrecognised disorder 15 years ago. In less than two weeks on a gluten-free diet, my child was spelling confidently, his writing became more uniform and he was overall, calmer and more settled. Subsequently, the school dropped the need to have him assessed.

This blew my mind. How could the removal of a particular food component such as gluten possibly have such a positive and immediate effect on my child’s learning and behaviour? This was pure gut-brain magic.



I provide babies, children with the foundations of a healthy start and resource the parents so that they can help them thrive. I believe there is a critical window of time in a child’s life where the drivers of ill health and dysfunction can be reversed naturally. Resilience can then be built for long term wellness. Nothing brings me more joy than seeing a child make a complete recovery and maintain their health on ongoing basis!


Every child builds the right foundations so that they have the opportunity to reach their full physical and emotional potential.

The gut-brain is such a vast topic. To understand how it works, it is important to understand how different body systems work, i.e. digestive, immune, nervous and structural/fascial systems as well as how they interact and compensate to sustain health.

Food, nutrition, toxins, emotions, stress and trauma are some of the key factors that influence the gut-brain and need to be considered too!

Fast forward to 2009, 2011 and 2018 when I trained in kinesiology, craniosacral therapy and nutritional therapy. I was on a holistic path that has led to a lifetime of learning.


My professional journey has been very much interconnected with my personal journey. Back in 2013 while training for craniosacral therapy, I got pregnant with my 3rd child. This was a time where I applied everything I knew into the making of this baby, from nutrition, bodywork to mindfulness.

Feeling confident, healthy and held in the caring hands of an experienced midwife, I chose a homebirth. This transformative event changed my view on the importance of early days.

At that time, I was seeing adult clients for different health reasons, from stress to low immunity, poor digestion, hormonal changes or lack of sleep. Progressively, I came to realise that health patterns that emerge during a lifetime can be forged in childhood and infancy.

The first 1,000 days of life

the time spanning roughly between conception and one's second birthday - is a unique period of opportunity when the foundations of optimum health, growth, and neurodevelopment across the lifespan are established (Unicef)

What if we applied a holistic approach to these formative years?

What if we provided strong environmental, nutritional and emotional support to a child from early infancy?

What if we also provided that kind of support to the mother pre and postnatally?


The past two years have been pivotal for my understanding of the environmental influences on the embryo, baby and child. My MSc dissertation ‘Is there a role for nutritional advice for breastfeeding women for colic relief?’ has provided insights into the formation and maturation of a baby’s gut, microbiota and immunology.

From my Integrative Baby Therapy (IBT) training, I have learnt to listen to the baby/child’s story and help process adverse experiences.

These foundational steps are key for optimal development and behaviour later on in life.

My children have set me on a holistic path. As a mother, I have gained first-hand experience from raising three kids and I have had the chance to practise what I preach.

I am excited to share my knowledge and clinical practice to support parents to help their children have the best possible start in life.
