I am an international expert on infant massage and yoga, mother of three & the UK Director of Love Support Unite.
I founded Blossom & Berry in 2001 as a result of my experiences as a nervous new mother, feeling lost and unsure how to make my daughter happy. I wanted to calm, soothe and bond with her but she was very colicky in the early weeks and cried a lot and I lost my confidence in understanding her needs and what I should be doing. I discovered baby massage and it transformed my life empowering me to embrace my role as a mother and respond to everything my daughter needed as I tuned into my instincts and into her cues.
It sent me on an incredible journey that would completely change my life. I went from a city lawyer to a baby massage instructor and through my successful business practice I have been able to completely love my job, find my passion in life and spend time with my three children as they have grown up. This has been my greatest joy.
I am happy to say I have taught hundreds of parents baby massage and have trained students around the world to set up successful practices teaching and supporting parents and babies using a holistic, natural and intutative approach to parenting and childhood.
I have worked with organisations such as Pampers, Nurofen for Children, Mother & Baby Magazine, Practical Parenting Magazine, Colief and New World Music, Huffington Post, Huggies Wipes to provide education on baby massage and I am the author of “Baby Massage-Expert know-how at your fingertips”.
I am on a mission to make the world a happier, more compassionate and connected place through empowering parents to respond to their babies needs and teach love through nurturing touch, massage and yoga. I believe that love creates love.
My greatest achievement has been the opportunity to spread the benefits of baby massage and yoga across the world. Setting up the Little Blossoms Project in Malawi to help support women and babies in poverty through safe motherhood and positive touch education has been life changing and I am fully committed to extending the project to other children in need across the globe.

I am the author of “Baby Massage: Expert advice at your fingertips” and “The Simple Guide To Baby Massage” which has sold copies across the world.

I have consulted on New World Music’s Baby Massage soundtrack album as well as being involved in numerous other media projects with Nurofen for children, Huggies, Colief & Huffington Post.
