Rachael is passionate about early childhood education and supporting families. Having suffered a difficult pregnancy and birth, she is working tirelessly to produce a Nurture Movement for mummies, daddies and children. ‘Skin to skin’, ‘love’ and ‘bonding’ are incredibly important factors to her work, as well as being a Chief Ambassador for Blossom and Berry’s Love Creates Love Campaign (blossomandberry.com). She feels that ‘bridging the gap’ between educational settings and home is of paramount importance, offering courses in Funky Phonics for Baby, while developing an ‘I’m School-Ready!’ course for parents and preschoolers to take part in during the summer holidays.
Not only a massage and yoga expert but also a trained Early Years Professional, Rachael also holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Education at Master’s Level. Creative and with a love of singing, she is an advocate for imaginary play, having a BA (Hons) in Acting to thank for that – as well as Sir Paul McCartney, having trained at his Institute for Performing Arts in Liverpool (LIPA).
When Rachael isn’t teaching, she is busy being the mum – and best friend – of her 1 year old daughter, Nell. Her partner, Owen, completes the family unit.
