Welcome to my website, which is dedicated to my passion in life - to help others.
Following my 15 year career in the Banking Industry, I've decided to accept Voluntary Redundancy and set up my own business in Home Care and Companionship.
From a young age it was very clear to me that I wanted to help others because I was drawn to people, especially those in need. I felt compassion for others and I would always look at both sides of a story - many times feeling the pain of others.
My second passion is my love for the elderly. I have always had a lot of respect for the elderly and hold them in high regard. As a 12 year old girl on her paper round I would regularly take the time to speak to each and every one of my customers. I built up close relationships with many of them sitting chatting about their day over a cup of tea.
My third passion - Reiki. Again something I have always been drawn to but never quite understood the reason why. Reiki has taught me many lessons. Following the birth of my second child, Dylan, I found life at home with 2 young children very challenging at times. I felt unable to relax and just go with the flow. Reiki has taught me how to relax, how to let go of any expectations, and just be strong, healthy and happy. I now want to share what I have learned with my clients to help create a healthy and balanced life.
My husband Chris has been my real inspiration because he has encouraged me to take a risk and do something with my life which will make me happy and hopefully others.......so when the opportunity came up to leave the Bank and accept Voluntary Redundancy I grasped it with both hands. For many years I have dreamed of running my own business in Home Care and Companionship and now I have the chance. And so my story begins, right here, right now.
*Reiki can be shared with clients who are interested at their request.
