The concept of being well and how overall health influences actions, emotions and ultimately wellbeing has been the focus of my professional and personal life for a number of years. The mind-body connection has underpinned my academic career, my work and my way of life. This interest is what focused my pursuit within both the psychological and physiological aspects of wellbeing. This online platform for Elements of Wellness has been created to share information and the services on offer which can support people in experiencing life which is kind to your mind, body and soul.
A little bit about me…
I was born to English and Turkish parents and raised predominately in England; although also schooled in Turkey and South Africa. I have since settled in the South Coast of England with my husband and children. Our rescued pets are a big part of our life.
My academic career started with a bachelor’s degree training as a mental health nurse, and continued in counselling psychology. I am currently studying my Masters in Health Psychology. Over the last five years my training, studies and research in mental health and psychology has enabled me to work closely with individuals in healthcare settings and the community as well as conducting special projects on wellbeing and mind-body awareness. This knowledge underpins the philosophy of Elements of Wellness from the viewpoint that fusing physical, mental and soulfulness supports total wellbeing. Moreover, my studies in yoga and mindful movement has helped me bridge the gap between physical and mental health. This specialism has helped me create the Elemental Movement Method that taps in to our intuition, whilst creating awareness of what is going on for us on a physical, mental and emotional level.
Taking a holistic approach to health from a physical, mental and soulful perspective supports a person’s total wellbeing. Therefore, I have completed qualifications in nutritional advice, personal training , yoga and exercise instructing to further expand my understanding of overall wellbeing.
The psychology behind meditation, mindfulness and movement is ultimately why I trained in these disciplines and why I chose to teach yoga-based movement and mental exercises from a psychological approach. I teach workshops and classes in aspects of wellness, as well as implementating wellness programmes in the corporate environment. I apply my values of kindness, patience, honesty and professionalism in all areas of my life and work.
In my spare time, I love nothing more than to walk along the beach or forest, get in the garden, enjoy time with my family and friends, experiment with food and travel to new places.
