I believe in providing a truly holistic approach to my client’s health concerns by determining the root cause, not just addressing symptoms. I consider allergies, intolerances, nutritional deficiencies, infections from bacteria, virus and parasites as well as any energetic, emotional and structural imbalance.
Natural Allergy Therapy
I had always had problems with food allergies, suffering for many years with Irritable Bowel, sinusitis, fatigue and brain fog.
In order to find relief, I had avoided certain foods, particularly yeast and milk, my worst allergens. I also had a severe allergy to coconut.
In 2003, I was introduced to NAET Allergy Therapy when my future husband Dominick started treatment for his own allergies and later completed the course to become a practitioner. It was natural that I became his first patient!
Following Natural Allergy Treatment, I found that I was able to return to eating all of the foods that had previously been a problem, including the coconut.
As someone with a science background, coming from a medical family, I was extremely skeptical, so I was blown away by the success of the treatments. This lead me to pursue a career healing others with this amazing therapy.
Education and Experience
In 2004, I first certified in Holistic Massage, then later that year, completed a NAET allergy course at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, UK.
I have work in several health clinics in England, including time with chiropractic and osteopathic practitioners, and in a conventional primary care medical setting. In Ottawa, I have spent time at the Seeker’s Centre for Integrative Medicine and working with the Integral Health Clinic.
In 2014, seeing a need for a truly holistic clinic in Ottawa, my husband and I founded Ottawa Holistic Wellness.
I have had great success treating people of all ages and also animals, including horses, for which I have had a lifelong passion, and cats and dogs.
To broaden my abilities I have studied other modalities such as nutrition, bodywork systems, Bowen therapy and mind-body techniques, all of which I incorporate into my work when needed.
In addition to Natural Allergy Therapy, I also offer Energy Healing.
I have always been fascinated by the phenomenon of energy in the body and how it relates to everything around us. Since 2010, I have been mentored a Shaman and Tantric Healer, I have achieved Reiki level 3 and am honoured to be working with a First Nations Elder and Healer.
More information on my approach to Energy Healing, Reiki and Chakra Balancing can be found at Wolf Healing.
I was born and raised in the UK, my father was an ENT consultant surgeon and my mother a physiotherapist.
I have a BSc in Environmental Science and Education, and my first job of 16years was as a front-line police officer in London, UK. This included ceremonial duties, Hyde Park demonstrations, marches and rallies, and 6 years on mounted horse patrol. As you can imagine, it taught me a whole lot about life.
Then, in 2005, I was diagnosed with cancer. A real wake-up call, but honestly, the best thing that ever happened to me! It changed my whole outlook on life and set me on a path of discovery, growth and self-development. I am still pursuing that path and will always be doing so.
Outside of work
I live in the country with my husband and rescue cats. We enjoy good food, friends, music, the outdoors, and being active. I practice hot yoga, the wonderful sport of dressage with my horse, Dragoon and, whenever possible, downhill skiing and hiking.
