Hello, I'm Kathy and I have spent over 30 years helping people to realise their health, wellbeing, relationship and lifestyle dreams. After decades working in London and for several years on the Wirral (near Liverpool), I'm so happy to still be practicing in London and now also on the French Riviera - ReikiCannes.com.
I was born in the Philippines and grew up in Weybridge, Surrey. In my '20s after some secretarial work at the BBC in London I became a jazz dance teacher and worked for "Strictly..." judge Bruno Tonioli as his teaching assistant at the old Dance Centre, Covent Garden in the 1980s. I taught private dance/performance to many singers including Paul Young, Mandy Smith, Rick Astley, Bananarama, Robbie Nevil; choreographed fashion shows such as for Alan International, Cobella, Clairol; and performed in shows and music videos.
Life can be easy or hard and challenges come to make us shrink or grow... My first marriage ended due to domestic violence; after living in a Women's Aid refuge with two young children, we moved to the Wirral, a quiet seaside haven near Liverpool. I taught exercise and dance classes and trained as an actress, obtaining LLAM Hons, trained in kickboxing, and married a gentle guitarist. I taught Drama for kids, vastly increasing their confidence which is very satisfying. At this point I still hadn't become attuned to Reiki so I put a lot of my angst into creative pursuits! Until I learnt to self-heal...
Returning to London, I worked as a Personal Trainer and actress; and as a children's drama leader I ran Partyplay Unique Children's Drama Parties. I qualified as an NLP Practitioner and Psych-K(r) Practitioner, after learning about the powers of the mind and the subconscious. I took my two daughters to a fire-walking weekend (NLP) so that they will always remember their own powers, having walked over red-hot coals for 25 feet. Awesome stuff.
I first experienced "healing hands" in my late 30s at a time when I was a lonely, stressed, struggling single mother on one income, recovering from a second failed marriage. A friend suggested I try some healers at the local library - I didn't know what it was but it was the most wonderful 10-miniute high I'd ever experienced in my life! That feeling continued for hours and of course the memory stays on forever. Immediately I decided, "I want to know how to do that for other people!". So here I am now, sharing what Reiki can do for you. I found a Reiki Level I course in 2001 and became a Reiki Master Teacher in 2016.
Loving dance and missing teaching it for several years, some years ago I qualified as a Zumba Gold dance fitness instructor ensuring I continue to enjoy teaching dance. In February 2020, I completed a 200 hours Yoga Instructor course, furthering knowledge and holistic ability to help you find a more comfortable, supple and strong physical body, healthy emotional and mental mindset and increased spirituality. After all, we have a subtle energy body as well as a physical body which is a temple for the soul.
My passion remains in helping people be well, happy and fit, naturally in mind body and soul.
I am blessed and proud of my two wonderful daughters, three wonderful grandsons, and am eternally grateful. My partner Robert and I live in a leafy part of south east London and frequently visit the Grasse St Jacques hills above Cannes, France.
Our natural state is Love, Joy and Peace, yet our minds sometimes affect our emotions which in turn create pain and disease in our bodies. With so many lessons from many teachers as well as life experiences, this led me to follow this self-healing regenerative route; now my work is to promote Love, Joy and Peace within, despite what's happening in our heads, bodies or the outside environment.
When something is difficult or if I feel blue, I remember to connect to source and just Be in the moment. Breathe, and Smile. After a little while, that inner light shines, that inner smile smiles.
Life is good.
