Wendy is passionate about...
the transformative power of scent and touch as sources of profound nourishment. Fascinated by the unconscious potency of smell to transport us through time and memory Wendy has spent many years researching the science and art of aromatherapy. She believes essential oils are the "molecules of connection", invisibly bridging our connection to the natural world and the sensuality of being human.
Wendy graduated from, and continues to work as a practitioner educator, at the widely respected Institute of Traditional Herbal Medicine and Aromatherapy (ITHMA, Regents University, London) in 2010. Wendy has specialist training in aromatherapy in pregnancy and can support a mother’s journey from conception through labour and into post-natal recuperation. Her certified training has also focused on supporting her client's through life's transitions of adolescence through to menopause and beyond. She volunteer’s as a Palliative Care Complimentary Therapist at St Wilfred’s Hospice supporting those who are crossing over the final and sacred threshold of dying. Wendy is fascinated by the body, nature connection and the importance of slowing down, the power of attention and intention, and taking time to pause and smell the roses.
Wendy lives with her son and dog on the Sussex coast surrounded by the poetic undulating hills of the South Downs, the majestic chalk cliffs and wild sea. This elemental landscape informs her life and her work, connecting her to Nature's rhythms through the ever changing tidal waters of the River Ouse and the constancy of the ancient carved feminine hills of Lady Downs.
"The past only comes back when the present runs so smoothly that it is like the sliding surface of a deep river. Then one sees through the surface to the depths."
