My journey toward creating Tranquil Soul Wellbeing began in October 2019. At that point, for personal reasons, I made the decision to leave my corporate operational risk role and embark on re-skilling that would enable me to create a wellbeing business.

My degree is in sports therapy and although I had not practiced for approx. 15 years, I was keen to utilise this knowledge and experience to provide the wonderful benefits of massage therapy to others, but with a holistic approach. So, I embarked on re-training with Brighton Holistics to enable this and now provide an amazing suite of treatments: Indian Head Massage, Ayurvedic Massage, Swedish Massage and Hot Stone Massage… there will be more added soon! I am also a Reiki II Practitioner and trained in 2020 with The Reiki School.

From my personal experience of the benefits achieved from a regular meditation practice, I was keen to incorporate meditation to complement holistic therapy treatments. I qualified in 2020 with the British School of Meditation for teacher training. This exposed me to a variety of modern and traditional meditation techniques, of which Yoga Nidra has become part of my regular self-care practice. It is truly nourishing and my favourite technique to teach and I now offer this as a 1-1 opportunity, which is the perfect complement to holistic therapy treatments.

Through Complementary Therapy, I have been able to identify my stress and anxiety triggers, which has resulted in a more effective response to these triggers. My sleep has improved, I am more attentive, focused, rejuvenated and better able to cope with the demands of the crazy busy world we live in… and, I am passionate to provide you with the opportunity to experience these wonderful benefits too!

My other interests are Rugby, getting out and about in nature, and making artisan jewellery using traditional techniques such as chainmaille and kumihimo.


Reiki therapy is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and is a form of complementary therapy commonly referred to as energy healing.  Practitioners explain that energy can stagnate in the body due to stress, injury or emotional pain and over time these energy blocks can cause illness. Reiki assists the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture or acupressure. A treatment is often described as a wonderful glowing radiance that flows though and around you.

indian head massage

This is a wonderful relaxing massage, which is conducted seated and uses acupressure massage techniques to release stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders. It aims to nourish the body’s energy systems and is particularly good for those who experience migraines or insomnia.

Swedish Massage

This is considered to be the ‘classic’ massage and forms the basis for all massage types.  Unlike sports massage or deep tissue massage, a lighter application of techniques and pressure promotes relaxation and wellbeing. Benefits include: ease of tension and pain, improves lymphatic drainage and improves blood flow.

Hot stones massage

This extremely therapeutic treatment uses heated natural stones with Swedish Massage techniques to ease areas of tension, assist soft tissue injury recovery, aid elimination of toxins and promote deep relaxation.

Ayurvedic Massage (Marma Therapy)

Marma points are anatomical locations in the body where a concentration of energy exists. In Ayurvedic philosophy, they are said to contain 3 Doshas: Vata (air and space), Pitta (fire and water), and Kapha (earth and water). These doshas are believed to be linked to physical and emotional wellbeing.

Like traditional acupressure and acupuncture, Ayurvedic massage stimulates the Marma points to assist the flow of energy and remove blocks to promote physical and mental wellbeing.

yoga nidra

This is not a physical practise. Instead, it is a deeply relaxing and restorative meditation. One hour of Yoga Nidra is said to equate to 4 hours sleep.

Translated as ‘yogic sleep’, it is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, similar to the ‘going to sleep’ stage. The intention is not to sleep but instead prepare the body for sleep and / or promote restorative relaxation. In doing so, the body’s energy layers and central nervous system are able to regulate, thus enabling the mind and body to recover from the stresses of our busy lives.
