Since the beginning of my career as a therapist 20 years ago, I have been very drawn to supporting those with cancer. I have found this work hugely rewarding and seen amazing health transformations when positive diet and lifestyle changes are combined with emotional healing.
I currently work with a wide range of health conditions but continue to develop my expertise in the field of cancer.
As well as one-to-one support, I offer an online programme for those with cancer developed with my colleague, Silvia Grisendi under the banner of our cancer education company, Cancer Clarity. Continue reading to find out more.

Seven Elements of Healing online programme
Cancer is a rare disease when we live in harmony with ourselves, with those around us, and with nature. However, most of us have become disconnected from a nurturing natural lifestyle, and unfortunately we are seeing higher rates of cancer than ever before.
The Seven Elements of Healing online programme has been designed to help you re-discover your connection with a natural way of living in a convenient, easy-to-access way. It introduces you to the seven areas of health that make up a truly holistic approach to healing, and by engaging with all seven, you will harness their synergistic power, allowing you to maximise your healing potential.
How the programme works
The programme contains 9 modules, one for each of the 7 elements, and two general modules - more details can be found below. Each module consists of a series of pre-recorded presentations given by myself (lasting around 2 hours in total), a guided meditation, and written support materials. The programme is hosted on the Vimeo platform and after purchase you'll be emailed a password to allow you access.
For those with cancer who are not sure if they want to commit to one-to-one support at this time, this online programme is a fantastic way to begin the process of learning how you can support your body, mind and soul in order to encourage physical healing.
Overview of the programme modules
Module 1 - The Nature of Healing
In this module we discuss exactly what healing is, and how we can shift into a state where healing is possible. We explore the very nature of cancer, and look at how it affects us on many levels, energetically as well as physically. By having a deeper understanding of cancer, we take the first step towards healing.
Module 2 - Planning to Thrive
Research shows that people with cancer who play a more active role in decisions regarding their treatment and other aspects of care often have a better disease outcome.
This module explores why taking charge of your own health really matters, and why planning is an essential part of this process. You will learn how to create a ‘Thrive Plan’ that will help you incorporate into your recovery journey the healing elements you will discover to be the most important for you during the programme.
Module 3 - Nutrition
There are lots of different opinions out there when it comes to the ultimate anti-cancer diet, so choosing which approach to follow can be difficult and stressful.
In this module, we will illustrate the ways in which food can promote healing, and provide the key things you need to know to help you find the healthy eating approach perfectly suited to your unique needs. Lots of practical tips will be offered to allow you to quickly and easily implement powerful healing dietary changes.
Module 4 - Detoxification
Increasing evidence suggests that toxic chemicals may have a role to play in the development of cancer, and it seems likely that they will also inhibit healing in those who’ve already received a diagnosis, especially as certain cancer treatments undermine the function of the main detoxification organ, the liver.
This module will explore the ways in which you can minimise your exposure to toxic chemicals, and enhance the function of the body's elimination systems, thereby reducing your chemical load.
Module 5 - Physical activity & Movement
The evidence is clear: physical activity has a positive impact on the health of those with a cancer diagnosis. But did you realise that the way you move in everyday situations is just as important as your activities, and that the wrong type of exercise can actually weaken your body?
In this module you will learn why physical activity and movement is so important after cancer, and we will provide plenty of practical tips on exercising safely. Most importantly, we’ll help you find ways to love getting active!
Module 6 - Rest & Relaxation
Insufficient rest and chronic stress are two of the most damaging factors for the immune system, and it is therefore really important to address any imbalances in these areas if you’ve been diagnosed with cancer.
In this module you will learn how to enhance the quality of your sleep, and shift to a state where deep, rejuvenating sleep is something that comes naturally to you. We will also discuss how you can incorporate deeply relaxing techniques into your daily schedule that will boost the regenerative and healing capabilities of your body.
Module 7 - Bio-energetic Balance
Our bodies are made of energy at the most basic level, and our energetic biofields are strongly influenced by energies from outside sources, such as geomagnetic forces,
electromagnetic radiation and daylight.
In this module, we explore how various energies have a positive or negative impact on health, and how we can maximise positive energies to re-balance our bodies and support healing. We will include practical ideas, so that you can easily incorporate energy re-balancing techniques into your everyday life.
Module 8 - Emotional Wellbeing
Unresolved emotional pain places a huge burden on our body, and is one of the most important factors contributing to disease. Many people have a sense that challenging emotions can be stressful for the body, but the area of emotional wellbeing and the links to physical health are not well understood, with many believing you have to stay positive in order to heal the body.
This module will explore the power of our emotions, and will give guidance on how to handle challenging emotional states so that they may serve to expand awareness and support healing, rather than undermine recovery.
Module 9 - Deep Connection
Loss of spiritual connection seems to play an important role in the deeper story of why cancer shows up in our lives.
In this module we will discuss the importance of spiritual connection and show how you can re-discover this connection through your relationship with loved ones, time spent in nature, and through getting in touch with your inner wisdom.
