Kerry’s path involved working for many years at the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva. She completed her professional Shiatsu Therapy training alongside her full-time work on different global health projects. Here at WHO, Kerry developed a keen interest in how stress affects people, and how the mind and body are so closely linked with overall health & wellbeing. Kerry became the organisation’s first “holistic” therapist, providing Shiatsu sessions to staff. She deepened her knowledge on the subject with her “memoire” - or thesis - on "Stress in the Workplace".
Some years later, Kerry took a sabatical in India to complete her first level Yoga Teaching qualification. Upon her return to WHO, she began teaching Yoga to staff over lunchtimes. It was a natural progression to introduce elements of Shiatsu into the Yoga classes. Yoga with the healing touch of Shiatsu - or Ki-atsu Yoga - was born!
Kerry now dedicates herself full-time to helping people feel happier, healthier and more resilient in their lives. She specialises in workplace sessions to help people feel as well as possible, physically & mentally. Through practical and collaborative sessions, Kerry equips people with effective tools and insights to help them deal positively with everyday stress, challenges and common complaints (including backache, headaches, fatigue and anxiety).
Her unique workplace sessions blend the different mind/body practices of shiatsu, yoga and meditation techniques, with modern coaching tools and insights, to help people deal more positively with the effects of stress.
Kerry also works with Vhi, designing and delivering Health & Wellbeing sessions for their diverse clients and also offers independent consulting to many of Ireland’s top corporates.
She has brought her unique sessions to over 100 top corporates and organisations, including WHO. Because she has spent many years working in pressured, office-based roles, Kerry understands the challenges many people experience, both physically and mentally. Her unique combination of skills, experience and interest in peoples’ general wellbeing, are ideally suited to helping individuals feel well, both in and out of the workplace.
