Pleased to meet you and thanks for dropping by. I am the founder of Blossom & Berry and your teacher, mentor and cheerleader. My official title is…..
Founder of Blossom & Berry, BA, Dip. Law, PGCE, IAIM, Birthlight, Dip Hypno, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Life Coach ITEC Massage, Author, Pregnancy and Post Natal Yoga Teacher, Children’s Yoga Teacher, Doula & Sleep Consultant.
I am an international author and expert on infant massage and yoga. I am a proud mother of three amazing children & co founder of the charity Love Support Unite. I am also very proud to be an ambassador for a number of mother and baby wellness brands and I am Channel Mums’ Baby Massage Expert.
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 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 also wrote Blossom & Berry’s “Soothe, Settle & Sleep Program” which has helped parents across the world. I curated Blossom & Berry’s book, “Love Letters For New Mothers” which showcases the stories of mothers across the world and share this wisdom with new mothers.

I 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. I have contributed to Mother & Baby Magazine and Parenting Magazine.
I am a proud ambassador for Tropika Mum & Baby Spa range.
I am currently the baby massage expert for Channel Mum, Mamabubabump, New Generation Parenting and Anida Maternity.
I have been in business for over 17 years. I am a business mentor and love to support others in their business journey using a creative and intuative approach. I believe community, relationships and love should inform business strategy as much as profits and metrics.
I am very 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 was incredibly honoured to be awarded the “Points of Light” award from Theresa May, Prime Minister. I recieved the award for raising over £100,000 for ‘Love Support Unite’ to support programmes which include providing a sustainable feeding programme to over 400 children, empowering communities with education, providing adult literacy classes, medical outreach, family based food security and teacher training workshops. The award also recognises the work I have done with mothers in rural communities in Malawi with our training in health care, first aid, and infant massage classes. Nearly 450 women a year are supported by this work in Malawi
In a personal letter, Prime Minister Theresa May said:
“Your ambitious work supporting ‘Love Support Unite’ and establishing ‘The Little Blossoms Project’ is providing health and education to vulnerable mothers and babies and having a transformational effect on the lives of families across Malawi.”
I have a law degree from Warwick University, a diploma in legal practice and a PGCE in teaching in the lifelong learning sector from the University of Essex.
