Who we are

After a long career at sea I figured it out that it was not very compatible with married or even family life. Through a series of door openings I became an international seminar leader and author teaching about relationships and the magic that goes with them. During my mid sixties I faced two major health challenges, or ‘wake up calls’, and subsequently I have altered course moving more into the field of health. This seems to be a poorly understood aspect of our modern world, filled with many directions and choices, most of them confusing and even contradictory. Our bodies take on nourishment in the form of food and convert a simple banana into becoming part of us in just a few hours. Such intelligence and creativity is inherent in every one of us who has life in the form of a body; this has my attention along with the recognition that the answers lie within us, in that true connection to ourselves. I live in Wiltshire with my wife, Sue.

I am excited to be part of the Vital Health team, partly because this is a new group collaboration for VisionWorks and also because it brings together so many of our experiences, personal and professional, over the last years. Since I retired as a schoolteacher in 1998, I have loved helping to set up and manage VisionWorks and Microbz as a director, partner with Jeff, and trainer.  The Vital Health retreats expand our work in relationship dynamics to focus on our relationship to our general health and wellbeing, which is so fundamental to our experience of life as we have discovered first-hand. I am a yoga teacher and a keen gardener. I have been married to Jeff for nearly 40 years and we live and work in rural Wiltshire; all of this brings me joy.

I head up the juicing events for Vital Health Retreats and will be using my knowledge in many areas of wellbeing so I can successful teach you to redress issues effected by modern day lifestyle habits, including the magnificent health properties of raw freshly prepared juices. By flushing the body with freshly extracted fruits and vegetable juices that are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes and more, your health balance will be restored and you will be on the journey to achieve optimum health and vibrancy. I run a successful and busy practice in Kingston upon Thames specialising in many different therapies, When not at work, I enjoy time with my family and working with VisionZambia, a project very close to my heart.

Born in France from a Spanish family, culture and mixtures were already in my blood. Travelling the world, I was introduced to microbes, not by accident but because I was looking for “something” sustainable to do and it did not take me long to realise their incredible potential. I have spent the last 10 years watching, studying, applying microbes and developing a successful private business (alter-entorn sl) for waste management, agriculture and animal husbandry. I was lucky enough to meet Jeff Allen and he helped me to see that people could work as well as microbes do. That was also my introduction to VisionWorks for Life and since then I have not stopped using this knowledge in both my personal and professional life, making life easier, better and more profitable.

Full Time Administrator

After 20+ years in London,  I work out of the Wiltshire office and have dipped my toe into every facet of the business. Working with the VHR team on the setup, administration and facilitating of the retreats both in Spain and the UK, as well as Sue and Jeff’s other UK based workshops and coaching has been a revelation.  I have learnt so much about myself, made some amazing friends and colleagues and have become the “go to girl” for all things VHR. When not at work, along with some big dreams, I am a single mother of two wonderful children and a soppy black labrador – which keeps me busy.

Promoter

I have worked for 15 years as an event manager for the German non-profit organisation “Frankfurter Ring“ where I was responsible for the project management of Chuck Spezzano’s seminars. I am also a certified Essence Trainer with an emphasis on group consciousness. Since 2014, I have been self-employed with my company PARIs Events, following the motto: “I love what I do and I do what I love.” I am also the VisionWorks coordinator for Europe as well as a facilitator of all VisionWorks courses. I am the mother of a grown-up son, and live with my partner Andreas, our dog and three cats in a house in Frankfurt. When not on tour  I love spending time with my family and animals. The Vital Health Retreat is the perfect combination of three elements: conscious inner alignment, taking proper care of our bodies and team work with good friends.
