So why did you want to work with The Holistic Directory?

I had been in discussions with Sophie from the beginning and absolutely loved the concept, I could tell straight away this would not be just a directory with a business listing but so much more. The editorials were engaging and the passion and enthusiasm from the driving force is infectious. I have worked in a sales and marketing arena for most of my working life and now I get to do what I am good at in a area I feel excited about with wonderful clients and a truly great team.

What got you into the holistic world?

Mmm good question, not sure when I really started looking further into all things holistic but I do remember reading a book by Shirley Mclaine called “Out on a limb” about 20 years ago and from that moment I was really interested in understanding all things metaphysical. I avoid going to the doctors if I can although of course they have their place but essentially there are an abundance of amazing therapies out there to assist us on our healing journey. I had a natural birth with my daughter and when she was born she had an infection in her belly button from where the cord had been cut , the doctors insisted she would need antibiotics and being a new mum I listened to what they had to say, after her treatment she was still poorly and they said she would need another course, this was not what I wanted to hear and I intuited the best healing for my daughter at this time would be homeopathy. She was treated for a little birth trauma and a tincture placed directly onto the tummy button. Within a day she seemed like a different baby and we have continued with alternative treatments ever since.
