Things about Erika…
Getting to know someone for me is really important, so here is a little about me…
My heritage is part Italian, German and British with a real sense of Italy being home.
I have two children who are mirror images of myself and her partner, not in looks but character. The world is a happier place when I think of them.
Our Labrador dog is exuberant, joyful and huge. I often refer him to like my third child! He makes the 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” can only help a positive or healing outcome.
The book called “The Secret” was a lightbulb moment for me.
Sweet words about Erika…
“she was an amazing source of comfort during my labour. She has a gift that can not be put into words.
“she was a positive and calming presence” “gave positive guidance” let us feel able to be ourselves during the whole time. ~S&M 2013
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 an 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.
