  • Descripción


    Born and educated in London, England, my parents owned a boarding house so I am used to living amongst people of other cultures and helping them during their stay.

    I became a holistic therapist 27 years ago and I spent 5 years in Mallorca, Spain where I helped to manage a healing and retreat centre focused on creative expression where the work also included care of the finca and estate, housekeeping, permaculture, gardening, caring for chickens, orchards etc. I also gave talks, workshops and courses in Aromatherapy in Spanish as well as in English.

    Prior to that I worked on a film, in animation, office work, as partner and chef in a restaurant and was a member in a workers' co-operative wholefood shop and restaurant in Manchester in the late 70´s where my interest in healthy eating and lifestyle began. I love cooking and baking and enjoy housekeeping which in the past has included childcare. I also work at a local gallery stewarding and helping with tourists' enquiries. Presently I am concentrating on painting and ceramic work.

    I enjoy teaching conversational English to children and adults of any age, and make sure they get lots of practice whilst involving them in fun activities. I am told that I communicate well.

    For four years I worked as a volunteer at the Tate Gallery in St Ives as part of the Family Learning Team and enjoy involvement in art with children. Helping at times with costume making and on-site catering for a local theatre group has been great fun and I enjoy working in teams as well as on my own.

    Currently I volunteer weekly at a community gardening project helping to grow and sell organic vegetables, promote healthy eating and where I am learning about Organic Horticulture and Permaculture. I also like to contribute to projects through cooking. I am interested in learning about community life and have enjoyed short stays at co-housing projects.

    I like being active, walking, folk dancing, body boarding, swimming, sewing, arts and crafts, Yoga and related activities and enjoy peaceful places close to nature when possible. I have two daughters and a grandson and now that I have more flexibility I enjoy the opportunity to travel and work whilst meeting new people, learning about their way of life and sharing skills.
