“I co-founded Tir na nOg in 2004, and continue to run the centre, practise therapies and run workshops and firewalks in this beautiful spot, and nationally and internationally.    

My interest in personal development began in my early twenties, and in the past 20 years I have studied a wide range of healing modalities, spiritual paths, and personal development approaches, which have seen me through many of life’s inevitable ups and downs (the usual stuff: life choices, work struggles, relationships, parenthood, divorce, single parenthood, bereavement, life choices, work struggles, dog ownership,.. you may be familiar with these, and more..).  My experiences with energy healing, with NLP and Hypnosis, and with Fire, which I find to be a magical and inspiring tool for healing and change, have not just helped me to cope with – and sometimes even thrive on – the challenges that life brings, but to help others access the support and resources to allow them to fully engage and grow with the possibilities in their personal journeys too.

I am also a big fan of self-acceptance and gratitude, and have found that for myself, and for so many of the people I meet, permission to just be who we are, and even to celebrate it, is both a huge relief, and a path to a much happier and peaceful life.  It is from a place of acceptance and respect that we can in fact often experience the most profound change and healing.

I believe that we all have within us the innate ability to heal and transform our own health, wellbeing and life experience, and my aim in my work with individuals and groups is to help clients discover resources they may not have known they had, and experience growth and wellbeing they may never have believed possible.  I am in awe of what people can do when they are ready to embrace change, and it is always a privilege to be part of that transformation.”
