In the past few years, I have come to feel deeply that it is time for women to rise up and take their place as powerful and valued members of society, earning their worth and bringing their unique, heart-centred businesses centre stage. It’s time for women to shine don’t ya think!
And also for many more years, I have been super passionate about reducing stress, helping with depression, relieving anxiety & panic and easing the many, many resultant symptoms to mind and body.
I have been in the self-care industry for 13 years now and I see how much damage stress can do if we give it half a chance! And oh how we do!
Back in 2003, it was my own battle with depression, anxiety and panic attacks that led me to train as a Shiatsu practitioner. This training helped me to heal and opened up a deeper, more nuanced world for me. A world of yin and yang, where our essential life force or qi (chi, prana) is an elemental flow through the seasons reflected in our bodies and minds.
Before Shiatsu I trained in Drama and Dance, so I’ve always been connected to the flow of the body and I still use my dance training today in the touch and flow I bring to my work.
Becoming a mother in 2011 to my beautiful (I know, I know!) wee boy Archie opened up a whole other world to me. And yet parenthood with all its wonderfulness also brought a restriction of movement I was not really prepared for. Oh and of course a mild dose of post-natal depression. Yay.
You might relate!
I did what I always do and found a way to help myself. I rediscovered and trained as a practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming. My world expanded again as I learned how to retrain the brain and make change easier.
During this time I also rediscovered Emotional Freedom Techniques and came to the challenging, scary and exciting decision that it was time to close one chapter, Edinburgh Shiatsu Clinic and open another, Dee Murray Therapies, so I could explore ‘what Dee did next’.
I came face to face with how hard it is for working Mums, mumpreneurs, to build a thriving business is what I did!
So I dug deep and did all the work I needed to do. I took compassionate sales courses, I became an EFT practitioner, I learned I had to get more visible, I co-ran EFT meetups. I trained as a Tapping into Wealth Coach and somehow managed to bumble right into burnout, even though I should know better!
But hey, I’m very human and of course, being me I found it inspired my work so it’s all good.
And all along I’ve held a vision in my heart to help reduce the pulse racing, soul-numbing and potentially life-destroying stress levels in the world.
Now, I finally feel as though all the threads of my life and work are coming together and that I’m in a good place to help other working Mums through the ups and downs of life &/or being in business for oneself.
Be it a Shiatsu massage to help ease the tension or to dive deep into your limiting beliefs & blocks so you can create freedom in your life and business, I’ve got you covered.
…you have a naturally very calm presence about you Dee.
