I was born in Madrid, Spain and I moved to England 1991. For me life is a continuous journey of exploration, discovery and growth. A lot of my personal choices during my life contributed to look deeply into my own healing and wellbeing as well as embracing other sides of me such as the creative and the spiritual. Along the years I have collected a lot of life experiences, personal development tools and spiritual resources as a result of the challenges that I invited to explore in my life. 

I am passionate about supporting others and facilitating a journey for self-discovery, healing and change. 

Since childhood, I have always been a companion to animals in need who were neglected and/or abused, witnessing a lot of this in rural Spain. This took me to offer support and healing and look into the holistic wellbeing of animals as well as for  humans.
I have been practicing as a Holistic Healing Practitioner since 2005, I lived in London for 17 years before moving to Somerset I used to be a mobile therapist in the community of Hackney and Islington. I moved to Somerset by the end of 2006 falling in love with the Island of Avalon where I have been practising privately from healing centres and as a mobile therapist when and where needed around the county. Other roles of interest and complementary to this career have taking me to work in mental health and social care as well as teaching Art and Design in FE and  in the NHS as part of a re-hab programme with people with mental health issues.
