When Thoughts Become Things and People.

"By thought, the thing you want is brought to you. By action, you receive it". - Wallace D. Wattles

Thoughts Become Things and People.

Rich and I met through our University, back in the unforgettable 90s (or is that un-rememberable??) At the time our romantic paths didn’t cross but we stayed in touch.

Social Media was growing and we rekindled our friendship in 2007. I share the story that Rich stalked me on Facebook, he recalls the story differently, of course.

A meet up, became a date, a date turned into a weekend, that weekend turned into a proposal. Still to marry (planned for 2025) we have been happily together for 16 years and counting.

Starting To Consider A Family.

We travelled, partied, worked, enjoyed adventures together. 

Although in mid 30s, I had never considered not being a parent. I suppose it sat at the back of the think-tank as a right, a passage, a transition, a switch to be flicked to on, when we chose it.

Project management at it’s best! 

My body had different ideas and didn’t respond to the project management approach. 

How very dare!

We began to take the role of being parents a little more seriously. The charting, the planning, the supplements, the holistic therapies, the nutrition. Nothing.

At the time I was studying as a Reproductive Reflexologist, another tool for the treatments toolbox. I was practicing on my myself doing the weekly protocols on both by hands and feet. 

A short lived surprise. A confirmation.

January 2014, a missed period and a positive pregnancy test. Our worlds changed within a few seconds. Sadly this was not to be, we miscarried later in the month. 

An emotional roller coaster of a time, resulting in medical management as my body refused to not be pregnant, based on my hormone readings.

As a solution finder, the eternal optimist and always looking for the gifts in the challenges, I was able to conceive. My body hadn't let us down, we could do this!

Fast forward to 2016, a whole load of fertility appointments, ovulation inducing medication, the ruling out of IVF or assisted conception. As we were discharged from our fertility consultant, with an the option of egg donation or adoption as the only route to having our now, most wished for family.

Thoughts Becoming Things.

23 September 2016 on a train to London, I sat with my journal and wrote a letter to future me. The first paragraph detailed that I would be easily, effortlessly, happily and healthily pregnant. Letter completed and put away for a year in a dated envelope with a reminder to open it in my diary.

The rest of the year played out with me doing more and more visioning, more thinking, energy work, releasing work including a huge aha moment that my paternal grandma wanted boys to carry on the family name. Had I taken on this energy in utero that I wasn't good enough as a girl? 

I worked though all of this with EFT, Past Life Matrix Reimprinting and other gorgeous energy therapies. I was my own project! It was insightful to say the least.

I love a Vision Board, always have. Having spent my former years being at art college, followed a design degree and an unfolding career in Visual Merchandising, Interiors, Retail Design and Consulting, this was a non negotiable process in creation and realisation. 

Have the idea, create the visual representation, take the necessary action to evolve the idea.

Creating a Vision Board in January 2017, was no different. With the exception that I hadn’t included any representation of a family, pointed out by Rich.

The board was full, there was no space for an image of a baby. This reminded me of how I worked with fertility clients at the time, with a first question of “what does having a family mean to you?”. Time and time again, the responses would be complete. A baby would make me/us complete. 

I thought of this as I tried to squeeze in the image of a baby I had grabbed from the internet. 

We were already complete, a baby wasn’t going to complete us. With this huge revelation, I stuck a pin through its head and plonked it on the Vision Board.

The Incoming Soul

Two weeks later. February 14 2017 to be precise. Rich and I took the afternoon off and celebrated Valentines with a delicious afternoon tea at Jameson’s, a local eatery. 

An 'earlyish' night and some us time, our incoming soul was coming to join us. 

I was late to discover that our incoming soul had come to play, I was around 8 weeks pregnant  and had stopped tracking periods, I simply thought I was perimenopausal.

The best and biggest surprise! 

I had the easiest, most effortless and happy pregnancy. Funny that, those were the exact words echoed back to me when I opened up the future me letter, 23 September 2017. 

I was 7 months pregnant, due November 11. 

Thoughts become things, with inspired actions. With a knowing, a feeling, a trust and belief.

Happy Valentines 2024.

Dedicated to Baby #1, who taught us plenty and paved the way for little sister Olive.

So, what next?

Feeling inspired to consider your future life, do you dare to dream?

  1. Consider the Don't Wants. What would you rant about to a friend? What happens in your life that you are really fed up with? What is the broken record?

  2. Flip the list and create the Do Wants. Dream big. Dare to dream.

  3. Check in whether they are your wants or someone else's. If they are someone else's. let them go.

  4. Create a visual representation of the Do Wants. On a board, do it digitally. Put it somewhere that you will see on a daily basis. Save it as a screensaver for your phone or desktop.

  5. Review regularly, check in with what's unfolding.

  6. Be patient, trust the process.

  7. Celebrate as you tick off each creation.

The next one day workshop dedicated to this very process is Saturday 06 April, Millhouses. Sheffield. DM to get the link.

my Approach

My approach to support you is rooted in empathy, trust, and a deep understanding of human potential. I believe that everyone has all of their answers within. These answers are waiting to be connected to. Whether you're seeking reconnection, a defined identity or simply relaxation,

I'm here to help you achieve your goals.

Group Coaching

An empowering journey for mid-life professional women, who have experienced loss or a significant life change. Navigating an unfamiliar way of being, possibly with a lack of identity an confidence, feeling lost, stuck, directionless.

Loss presents in so many ways. Simply recognising what we’re currently experiencing as loss, is empowering in itself. When our identity is changed through circumstance or choice, we may lose familiar parts of ourself. Life feels different, complicated, stressful.

If this sounds like you and you are looking to reconnect with yourself on a deeper level, find that spark for life, get fire in your belly, live with less stress and more direction.

The next group program starts March.

Who are you registered with - I can claim on my health insurance?

I am trained and affiliated with the Association of Reflexologists (AOR), the UK's largest governing body. My membership number is 22549.

EFT and Matrix Reimprinting, I am with the EFTRRA EFT and Matrix Reimprinting Academy.

What is the difference between foot and facial reflexology?

Reflexology is a beautiful therapy whereby the whole body is mapped out over the feet, hands, face, head and ears. Typically known as a treatment applied to the feet.The most relaxing treatment you could ever receive, according to my clients.

The feet feedback as to what’s going on with the whole body health. This can be through the temperature, skin texture, colouration or dryness. The aim of a treatment is to gently encourage whole body healing through sedation, stimulation and balancing of each reflex point.Encouraging the body to return to its most healthy, balanced and vibrant self - homeostasis.

Facial Reflexology Although not as well known as Foot Reflexology, equally as wonderful. The main difference between the two is that Facial Reflexology uses a minimum of 7 'maps' with over 100 specific protocols, depending on the requirement of the treatment.

Amazing for supporting neurological conditions as we are working so close to the brain.

There are side effects with this treatment - radiant glow, lymph drainage to reduce puffiness, muscle toning and increased collagen production!

Many clients enjoy alternating foot and facial reflexology sessions or enjoying a longer session whereby we can incorporate both.

Clients have experienced:

Ultimate Relaxation

Increased Self Belief,

Confidence & Esteem

Reduced Stress & AnxietyI

mproved Sleep

Balanced Hormones

Fertility & Maternity Support

Reduced Physical Aches and Pains

I am pregnant, can I be treated?

Absolutely! I have trained in Fertility, Maternity and Reproductive Reflexology and love supporting both you and your baby. Client choice may be to come after 12 weeks, although I am happy and confident to work with you at any stage of pregnancy.

Do you offer remote reiki or energy healing?

Yes! Reiki and Seichem are universal energies that can be sent over the 'airwaves'.

No travel or parking to worry about. Choose a 45 Minutes session, I will be in touch to discuss if you would prefer fully remote (no technology or via video call).

Do you offer block bookings?

Indeed. Similar to going to a gym, whatever we do consistently will always yield better results. Sessions can be bought singularly but if you are ready to commit to regular you time, I offer a 12 session package. This is valid for 12 months from purchase.
