Things about Erika…
Getting to know someone for me is really important, so here is a little about me…
My heritage is Italian, German and British, with a real sense of Italy being home.
I have two children who are mirror images of myself and my partner; not in looks, but in character. The world is a happier place when I think of them.
Our Labrador dog is exuberant, joyful and huge. I often refer to him as my third child! He makes our family of four complete.
I’m drawn to nature, to open spaces, and to travel. In those, I am free.
You will always find me in flat shoes so that I don’t miss a beat!
So much of me is about memories, feelings and helping people achieve.
I’m never far from a camera. I see the memory I want to capture before my eyes and as I click, it is frozen in time to be cherished at another time.
I believe in challenging our boundaries or at the very least giving ourselves the opportunity to try.
Invigorated and full of – can-do – my approach helps take you to a positive or healing outcome.
The book called ” The Secret ” was a light bulb moment for me.
Sweet words about Erika…
“She was an amazing source of comfort during my labour. She has a gift that can’t be put into words.”
“She was apositive and calming presence“, “gave positive guidance” and “let us feel able to be ourselves during the whole time.”
My favourite meal is lasagne filled with home-cooked ragu and love, just like my amazing Nonna used to make.
I am deeply nostalgic: images and smells are evocative of a time and experience for me, perhaps even of a previous life.
I grew up with many images in the family home – though in drawers and albums, but fundamentally always accessible.
The smell of a newly blossoming Gardenia plant is heaven! I have no choice but to close my eyes, feeling weightless and free.
My passion to travel comes from spending time away from the UK and I first flew when I was just a week old!
I often feel happiest when travelling a guilty pleasure of mine.
