Much of my work comes from Ancient Chinese Medicine, where the study of patterns & the metaphor of the 5 Elements can be over laid onto any situation in our lives to lead to inner balance.

I also use 5 Element Energy Clearing. I incorporate my Tapping and Hypnotherapy qualifications to look at any blockages or limiting beliefs that may be held.
