Originally an actor I had a surprising ‘call’ from my first chance encounter with essential oils. I quickly embarked on training as an aromatherapist with the Tisserand Institute, who offered the most intensive training at that time in the UK. I qualified as an aromatherapist in 1996.

In 1999 I was invited to teach the Diploma course for Tisserand, and did so until the school closed. I was then asked to create and be principal tutor on a range of aromatherapy courses for Neal’s Yard Remedies, and began teaching for them and creating those courses from late in 2005.  I left NYR in 2021. I continue to teach aromatherapy courses privately.

In 1997 I began working as an aromatherapist within the mental health field. This client base were particularly receptive to the deep emotional and energetic effects of the essential oils. Many of these clients also had complex physical health challenges. The reactivity and sensitivity of this client group meant I needed to further my own training in how to hold the therapeutic space safely for them. This took me to train as a Reiki practitioner, and, finally I reached the end of intense training in a new modality, by qualifying as a craniosacral therapist in 2005. I regard myself as primarily a craniosacral practitioner in my approach to massage itself.

All living organisms are constantly working towards their health and wholeness, adjusting to changes within their external and internal environments. In my hands-on work as a craniosacral practitioner and aromatherapist I listen for how your body is trying to move towards balance. Most of us, in our complex and busy world, and our complex and busy lives, have lost a certain ability to listen to what might be called ‘the wisdom of the body’ Instead, we often over-ride its messages. One of the reasons that bodywork of all kinds has become so popular is precisely because we have literally become ‘out of touch’ and have forgotten how to listen to what our bodies are expressing as unease, dis-ease, until they start shouting their distress at us.

One of the reasons I particularly like working with clients who are working with talking therapists, is because they are already working at actively listening to themselves, a process of exploration and adventure rather than overwhelm. Bodywork, of all kinds, encourages us to take our attention to the felt sense of ourselves as whole beings, paying attention not only to what feels ‘wrong’, painful or uncomfortable, but to that always present resilience and movement towards vitality and feeling better ‘in ourselves’.

What is always going to be most important, is am I the right practitioner for you, with the right treatment modality, for us to explore together your journey to better health, or to its maintenance. So I would like us to have a no obligation phone conversation before making a booking, so that you get a sense of whether I am likely to be the right practitioner for you, at this point.

It's my pleasure to re-introduce Roz Webb, of @babyin.babyout as May's final in-focus Moon Wise Woman Practitioner. 

Roz has deep expertise and experience of all things pregnancy, postnatal and baby. At Moon Roz offers Movement and Baby Massage. 

Roz remembers vividly how much the baby classes at the @activebirthcentre and Archway Children’s Centre, made parenting feel so much more enjoyable and less exhausting when she had her babies – the support, kindness and wisdom of teachers and fellow parents makes all the difference.

Inspired by these classes, when her own children grew older, she felt called to train to support others through pregnancy, birth and early parenthood.

She has been teaching developmental baby massage and movement classes for twelve years and is passionate about supporting parents, giving them a space to unwind and recharge. 

Baby massage sessions are really special - as babies settle into a massage you can see parents relax too – a true, deep, bonding experience that is wonderful to watch and really special to experience. Through touch, movement and music, parents can support their babies to unfold and unfurl, to become more able to greet and navigate the complex world they live in, because a familiar massage is always a safe space to return to.

Although Roz loves Archway, she also really enjoys a country walk with good views and birdsong. She plays the piano and clarinet and sings in the Hex community choir – although in the past she sang with the London Philharmonic Choir, even singing in a prom at the Royal Albert Hall when eight months pregnant!

You can find out more about Roz and her next Movement and Baby Massage sessions, that start on 6th June, in our bio.

It feels like an age since we did an Insta Live, so I'm very glad to say I'll be talking to Carlotta Bozzetti this Thursday.

We'll be discussing the societal and familial importance of acknowledging and celebrating our daughters' journey to womanhood and the start of their period.

We'll be posting the recording of the session on our grid, so even if you can't join us live, you'll be able to listen in.

If you have any questions you'd like to ask Carlotta, please drop them below or ping Moon a DM.
