Ultimately, I want to save you a lot of time and money; it took me a long while to find the answers and much soul searching to work through my demons. I travelled from Italy to India from Spiritual Guru’s to Shamanic Healers, from all forms of Therapy to Energy Work and EMDR and tapping in order to re-discover myself. But the most powerful work I’ve ever done has been to tell my “untold” stories to a group, to be heard and to shed the shame I’ve carried on those stories for all of my adult life.
Another family situation necessitated a career break and after helping launch the radio station Heart 106.2 in London, I joined my mother up a mountain in Umbria in Italy, helping nurse my alcoholic stepfather and get him back to the UK and into rehab. When I returned to the UK 3 years later, unsurprisingly, I began a new path yet again, re-training as an addictions therapist and landing a job at The Priory Hospital in London. From Rags, to Radio to eventually Rehab!!
