I’ve been called a holistic health hero, a natural health guru, a mind-body-spirit expert, a travel and wellbeing journalist, a spa specialist…
I prefer to say I’m a seeker, a novice yogi, an alchemist in training, a restless curious soul who knows nothing for certain and always keeps an open mind and a wide open heart.
I was lucky. I was born into a family who believed in myths and magic. I played with homeopathy and herbalism, karate and Kabbalah, yoga and Zen Buddhism – all before I left school.
I’ve written over twenty books on holistic living including Spirit of the Home, The Detox Plan, The Energy Secret, The Five Minute Healer and – my latest – Wellbeing & Mindfulness. As a journalist, I have tested nearly every therapy going, have interviewed thousands of experts and have been on a ludicrous number of retreats. Have I discovered the meaning of life? Not yet. But I’ve discovered some amazing things along the way.
I travel the world (and inner landscapes too) and report back with all the honesty and integrity I can muster. I try to simplify the often arcane concepts behind alternative health and spirituality and hopefully make them accessible and meaningful to everybody.
This website brings together my wanderings and writings.
If you want the lowdown on natural therapies, holistic beauty, spa and retreat travel, psychology and spirituality, I hope you’ll find this site a useful resource.
If you’re into beach fires and wild swimming; good deep massage and slow focused yoga; belly laughs, road trips and astral flights of fancy, we may well be kindred spirits.
If you’re interested in advertising on the site, do get in touch. I don’t run advertorials – but do run beautiful square ads (see the side panel of my home page for examples). I love working with brands and businesses that make a difference to people’s lives (in a good way!) so would welcome an approach if you and your company share my love of natural health and wellbeing, fitness and travel, sassy style and meaningful culture.
I get a serious kick out of networking, putting readers in touch with brands, products and people I love – so let’s think outside the box together.
I occasionally review products, services and experiences on the site. Do contact me if you have something you feel might interest me. Please bear in mind that I value my integrity and independence very highly and I only recommend those I truly value. I am always honest.
