Welcome to my website. This is my opportunity to share my passion for the benefits of all holistic therapies for adults and children. I hope that you will find something here to encourage and inspire you to further your own professional and personal development.
Holistic Therapy Courses and Therapies
My specialist area is running CPD courses and workshops for beginners and therapists. Many of my courses, including my Indian Head Massage Diploma and Story Massage are accredited by the Federation of Holistic Therapists.
Publications and Talks
As a trained journalist, I also enjoy writing articles and books on holistic therapies. I am a regular speaker at conferences about a variety of holistic topics. In 2012, I was given the honour of being Cocoro UK representative, working with a Japanese charity providing aromatherapy and story massage for children affected by the tsunami. I was recently presented with the prestigious FHT Excellence in Leadership Award for my work with the charity.
I am co-founder of the Story Massage project which combines the therapeutic benefits of positive touch with the creativity of storytelling. It is very popular in schools, special schools, hospices and, of course, the family home.
Thank you so much for such a lovely training day. Your teaching was calm, helpful, informative and inspirational and it was great to get one-to-one assistance. It has given me the confidence to go straight out and deliver all I have learned to my clients.

First rate teacher and therapist. Genuinely lovely, warm person who radiates positivity. I would recommend Mary highly and frequently do! I’m glad I travelled to Chichester to do her FHT approved Indian Head Massage course – when clients tell me that I do an amazing IHM, I tell them I had an excellent teacher!
