Beautiful skin and womanish working

A conversation about how being weird and following your heart is the way...

This week I had a chance to talk to Sami Blackford who I first met at a Red Tent I ran a few years ago.  She told us her story, of how she had acne as a teenager and how nothing worked to clear it up.  I had also had awful skin at that age.  It kept me away from parties and socialising and I hated it.  My response was to withdraw and hide. Sami’s was to set about making her own skincare products, learning about plants and herbs from old books, on her kitchen. 

In this podcast episode Sami shares her journey from there to a field of organic plants and an ethical business run intuitively, led her values and her passion.

(Ps…I’ve met her in the flesh…her skin is perfect!)

I have over 30 years of experience and qualification in various therapeutic and meditation/mindfulness based approaches. I work with change. Some changes we chose, others happen to us.  Sometimes we know we want to change but don't know how. Sometimes we don't want to change but external events or people are forcing us to change. The menopause, children leaving home, the end of a relationship or job, becoming a parent, coming out, bereavement are just some of the personal changes I support people with. I also work with people who want to make changes to their life and wider world in response to social issues such as Covid, the climate crisis and racial, sexual and gender inequalities. Times are changing whether we want them to or not and we need to be nimble, agile, curious and open in order to part of the new story emerging. Work with me to get clear on what matters to you, what makes your heart sing and what kind of future you want for yourself and those you love. It is possible to live differently, get in touch to explore how.
