My Story


I’m a Yorkshire lass, I’m married and a mother to our beautiful daughter Lily-May who is 2.5 years old.

My passion is to support Women throughout their motherhood journey to feel happy, healthy, confident and empowered.

I am a specialist trauma informed and pre & post natal Yoga and breathwork instructor. 

I am also a Matrescence Coach and Mama Rising facilitator. 

I am honoured to support Women through one of the biggest transformations and shifts In identify they will ever experience- becoming a mother.

I am fascinated in the affect that trauma has on our physical well-being and dedicated to supporting women to heal from their perinatal experiences with a ‘bottom up approach’- meaning to use the bodies wisdom to aid healing. 

The power of Yoga and Breathwork to aid healing and enhance well-being continues to amaze me.

Somatic Experiencing is the next string that I have decided to add to my bow and I am beyond excited to expand my knowledge and understanding in this field.

Since becoming a Mother myself I have experienced birth trauma first hand and felt the effects physically, emotionally and mentally. 

I was never officially diagnosed with anxiety, post natal depression and post traumatic stress but did experience them. For me my healing began when my little girl started nursery and I had the regular time, rest and space to identify just how much I had struggled. 

I have also experienced a missed miscarrage and eptopic pregnancy and felt the devestating sadness and grief following our loss. All of the techniques that I use support Women have helped me navigate my own traumatic experieinces and I love to share them.

I believe that we can all heal and recover from our experiences at any stage in our lives and be the Women and Mothers that we desire and deserve to be.


When not at work, you'll find me spending quality time with my family, watching the sun rise and set, on my SUP, open water swimming and generally out in nature.

I offer 1:1 support online via zoom or in person at my studio (I am based in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, England).


I cant wait to meet you.

Sending lots of love and support.
