I moved to London, from Yorkshire, in 1994. Initially I became an Advertising Photographer in East London and I first lived in Hoxton Street, way before it became gentrified.
I worked in photography studios around the raw buzz of the East End and have always lived in Hackney or Bow.
Then as the years passed and the strains of the stressful life of Advertising started to take its' toll on my health, I knew it was time to wave goodbye to that life and to begin a fresh.
My Mum had always been interested in natural health, she questioned the way we expected the doctor to be able to help, instantly with a pill. When my skin started to break out at the start of puberty she found a Homeopath and off we went to discuss my problem. He was called Mr Watson, a gardener by trade, so a man very close to nature. He gave me one sugar pill and as the days turned into a week my skin cleared. I did nothing else and when my monthly cycle came there were no blemishes on my face, my back or my chest. I was spot free, much to my teenage joy.
I have my Mum and Mr Watson to thank for their guidance, which now allows me to have my own health practice in the City of London.
