I have been a practising therapist and healer for over 12 years, working in gyms, spas, offices, events, and private homes, and I am now based in North west London. I always had an interest in healing and would give massages to friends and family whenever they requested it.
I only decided to train formally however, after I was struck down with a mystery illness in 2001. I was in constant, severe pain which stopped me from walking, and I lost an alarming amount of weight because I couldn’t keep anything down. Of the numerous medical professionals I saw over a period of 5 months, not one was able to pinpoint the cause of my symptoms, and everything they prescribed only made me feel worse. Out of desperation, I began to listen to my body. I rested, ate very lightly, and ‘spoke’ to the part of my body that held this pain. Doing this was a revelation and was the first step in really understanding how the mind, body and spirit truly work in harmony. I was healed within a month! I never found out what my illness was, but it ignited my interest in the body’s amazing ability to heal itself, and in 2002, I enrolled on an ITEC complementary therapies course where I gained ITEC qualifications in 7 therapies. I became a Reiki master in 2004 and started time therapies in 2005. I choose time because Oge actually means time in Ibo, one of the 3 main Nigerian languages, so essentially, these are Oge’s therapies!
Because of my personal experience, I have a profound interest in integrated holistic healing. I believe persistent physical problems can sometimes be caused at a fundamental level, by emotional/energetic imbalances in the emotional /energetic field. So I not only treat the outward symptoms of disease, but aim to treat the whole person, identifying imbalances, then tailoring my treatments to the individual needs of my clients.
As well as my regular practice, I currently volunteer at the Marie curie hospice in Hampstead providing treatments to patients and staff.
I am a member of the Complimentary Therapists Association and am also fully insured with them.
